Pines Montessori School prepares children for life through learning experiences based on authentic Montessori principles and practices.
Pines Montessori School will be an exemplary Montessori School enriched with methods, materials, and facilities relevant to a contemporary understanding of the needs of the child.
In order to accomplish this mission, we offer a challenging, lively curriculum that emphasizes the fundamentals of learning and encourages young scholars to communicate, reason, and think. We regard proficiency in reading and mathematics to be essential, not as ends in themselves, but because these basics are the keys to life-long success.
Alongside our academic goals, we strive to foster in our students ethical behavior, a sense of self-worth, and an enthusiasm for learning. We are a community guided by mutual respect among the administration, staff, students, and parents. We welcome open and frank communication and encourage staff and parent participation in all aspects of the school.
Our before- and after-school child care is of extraordinary quality. It offers a range of opportunities for creative play, art activities, supervised outdoor play and games…or even quiet time for individual study or conversation with friends. Our intent is to offer a personalized child care program consistent with the philosophy of our Montessori classrooms.
