Message from the Head of School, Allison Driver


            The Montessori School is the only Montessori academy in the Scenic City and serves students from 18 months to 8th grade. We place an emphasis on the “3 C’s,” preparing our students to be Caring, Creative, and Confident lifelong learners. We offer individualized academic lessons that allow our students to obtain mastery at their own pace and skill ability level.

            Our students receive a strong academic foundation utilizing a holistic approach that prepares them to continue to thrive beyond their experience here at The Montessori School. Our school does not teach the students “what” to think but rather “how” to think. The staff guides students through the process of discovery that in turn leads to growth and increased self-confidence.

            As Dr. Maria Montessori once stated, “And so we discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.” Our primary goal is to provide a well-prepared environment that includes dedicated staff members, supportive parents, and invested community stakeholders who encourage and foster intrinsic motivation and independence that ultimately results in our students reaching their maximum potential.

            I welcome you to come visit and tour our school. Tours occur every Tuesday at 2:00p. Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in obtaining more information about our school!

Monthly Message from Head of School, Allison Driver

“Teaching Peace All Around the World”

March 2018


Last month, my message reflected love and appreciation. During March, we had the opportunity to celebrate International Night. With International Night being one of our highlighted events, it is fitting to speak about the celebration of cultures. Celebrating cultures as well as embracing differences is what makes the world such a beautiful place. Everyone has something special to offer and it is beneficial for us to recognize the characteristics that shape us. We are all a reflection of where we come from, our values, and our experiences.

Spreading the message of peace is essential. We must model for our future generation and encourage them to be positive change agents. With the incorporation of Love and Logic, we use guiding principles to ensure mutual dignity and respect. By incorporating these principles, as well as spreading peace, we can make a stronger and more beneficial impact on our society and the thought of that is extremely gratifying!
