“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
Howard Avenue Montessori School opened in the fall of 2012 and currently has 4 primary classrooms of mixed ages – three, four and five year old children and 4 lower elementary classrooms of 1st through 3rd grades. In the 2017-18 school year, there will be one 4th grade class.
The school will continue to expand to 8th grade. Our early childhood (Primary) classrooms have approximately 30 students in the morning with one teacher and a morning assistant. The 3 and 4 year olds are half-day students, attending for the morning session only. K5 students attend for the entire school day with approximately 12 children in the afternoon. Howard offers a reasonably priced Camp program open to enrolled students from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm daily.
Howard Avenue Montessori School offers many enriching after school activities including sports, Spanish, Robotics, and a sensational Drama Club. As the school expands to eighth grade, we will continue to add additional programs and opportunities for student participation during the school day.
To enroll into Howard Avenue Montessori, parents and guardians must participate in MPS’s 3 school Choice period during the first 3 weeks of February. Every year we open K3 seats with a limited number of K4 seats. Please contact the school at 935-0700 for a tour after October or if you have any questions.
The Montessori method of education is based on the philosophy that children are able to reach their full potential through multi-age interactions in an inquiring, cooperative and encouraging atmosphere. Our staff focuses on fostering independence and responsibility in students. Children demonstrate creativity, concentration, and leadership in their work and community. The Montessori environment and teachers ensure that our young learners build confidence in their abilities and exceed in their academic and social abilities. Montessori education nurtures the whole child and strives to creates a community of peace.
