Welcome and thank you for your interest in Highlawn Montessori School, an extraordinary educational institution for children from age 3 to 12 years old. We provide an integrated, inclusive, highly personalized educational environment, exceptional academic outcomes, and warmth of community.
Montessori is carefully designed to bring out the best in individuals and connect them with others. We take the time to know each child, to plot out a course for their natural development, to observe how they are doing, and to work with their interests to build on their strengths.
The world has changed, but what it takes to be successful hasn’t changed since Maria Montessori created her educational approach over a hundred years ago: a strong emotional, social, behavioral, and moral foundation.
Montessori helps children develop into individuals who know right from wrong, who have self-confidence and are connected with others, who find fulfillment, and who connect and contribute to the world.
- Montessori works in every
settingfor the success of each child.
- We help parents develop children who are morally, emotionally, and behaviorally prepared for the real world.
- Our teachers support your child’s natural development, building the capability to become productive, fulfilled adults who contribute to the world.
- Teachers help children follow their interests and passions to develop strong skills in academics, leadership, self-discipline, responsibility, independence, and initiative.
- Our classrooms are hands-on, self-paced, collaborative, and joyful, creating a lifelong learner and doer.
