The mission of our school is to guide the development of children towards becoming independent, responsible, contributing individuals. In so doing we strive for the child to become one who seeks a personal vision and who uses their talents and skills to enrich individual and community life. We educate children in an atmosphere which promotes respect and dignity for themselves, for others, and for the world in which we live. The Montessori approach to education is a holistic one, offering not only a rigorous academic curriculum but addressing as well the spiritual, emotional, physical, and social needs of the child. We celebrate meaningful traditions. We honor the sanctity of each persons’s spirit. We provide the needed security to embrace challenge. We nourish the deep lasting relationship between children, teachers, and parents, which deepens the learning experience. Within the Montessori classroom children face a microcosm of the world. With enrollment at approximately 200 students from Primary (3 years) through Middle School (14 years), The EAC Montessori School is a community of diverse cultures, languages, religions, and nationalities.
