Our Early Childhood and Elementary Schools have a foundation significantly influenced by Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophy of education, while our Middle and High Schools integrate traditional, progressive and 21st century practices and methodologies. We provide a "right-action, right-time" approach, based on a pragmatic response to global trends, as well as to the particular needs of each child and classroom environment. Our long-term objective is to have each and every graduate be proficient in demonstrating the 5 Attributes: Well-being, Environmental and Cultural Awareness, Self-Generated Learning, Self-Expression, and Leadership. We purposely nurture the community's contextual elements. These elements include school culture and teacher authenticity, as well as individual contextual elements like character, mental models, and self-concepts. As a result, we care for the spirit and heart of each child by providing preeminent character development, conflict resolution and mindfulness curricula.
