Overview

Overview

Summit-Questa Montessori School (Prek-8th) says

Summit-Questa Montessori School is a community of educators, children, parents and extended family committed to the Montessori philosophy.

Dr. Maria Montessori, whose life work centered on the care and education of children, so eloquently said, "Within the child lies the fate of the future."

Summit-Questa assists in developing all the aspects of the individual, including the child's self-creation of who they become. Our program has also been validated by our middle school graduates who have been accepted, and excelled in many of the top high-schools in South Florida.

We are located on a beautiful 10 acre campus, with native habitats, edible schoolyard vegetable gardens, butterfly gardens, a wetland preserve, and brand new gymnasium and pool.

Mission Statement

The Summit - Questa Montessori School was founded to develop the intellectual, social, spiritual, and ethical qualities that each child has inside of them. This means the learning environment is built on the Montessori philosophy, which focuses on the known developmental needs of the child. To that foundation we add current research and the latest theories of learning and human development. Our goals are to create academic excellence, creativity, appreciation of nature, good communication skills, respect for others, maximize each individual's personal development and nurture the love of learning, knowledge, and life. To that end, the Summit - Questa School Community endeavors to provide a state of the art learning environment which is developmentally responsive, safe, respectful, and positive. Summit - Questa will provide extensive opportunities for students to grow into intellectually and spiritually reflective individuals who are well rounded, harmonious, ethical, and caring.
