Our Core Values
Our core values are the inherent building blocks of our campus communities and reflect our lasting commitment to Montessori education and principles, as well as to our students, families, and community. These key elements help define our identity and purpose:
Each person – student, teacher, parent, director, and administrator – who joins our institution belongs to a diverse group of students and adults that respects the children and each member of our community. Together we all contribute to the success of our students and community.
We respect our children and one another as members of a community. We value the uniqueness of each member of our community and treat each other with kindness and dignity.
We seek diversity to create a learning environment that includes and values differing perspectives and cultural depth.
As a Montessori institution, we value a thoughtful and well-prepared learning environment that is both purposeful and peaceful. A stimulating and nurturing environment provides students with success and joy to become lifelong learners.
We strive to attain and maintain high standards of performance in everything we do to develop the maximum potential of every child and educator. Our students are empowered to be self-motivated, self-disciplined, and independent learners. Our educators are talented individuals who give their best and work together to create and environment where others can do their best. As an institution we continually seek ways to improve and grow.
We respect and nurture individuality, and value the knowledge, skills, ideas, and capabilities that each student and educator bring to our community.
Our institution exists to serve and educate children. We continually ask how we may better serve each child and the integrity of our decisions is based on the best interests of our students.
We strive to instill in our students a love of learning and believe learning is fundamental to human flourishing. We hope our students will take every opportunity to learn something new, to grow, and to better themselves.
We share a respect for self, others, our world, and our environment.
We champion the ability to accept and recover from difficulty, challenges, and change
We accept the responsibility to work hard and persevere in all that we do and to take responsibility for our actions.
We believe self-reflection is critical to growth and change.
