Message from the Head of School, Allison Driver

            The Montessori School is the only Montessori academy in the Scenic City that 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 3:00p. Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in obtaining more information about our school!

Allison Driver, MAOM
