About Montessori West
The six campuses of Montessori West set children up for a lifetime of success.
Today, Montessori schools continue to set children up for a lifetime of success.
The Classroom Community
They also have the opportunity to observe their peers’ more complex lessons and develop the intrinsic motivation to reach that interesting work. Because all students’ instruction is individualized, those who need more time to master a concept can spend time doing so, while those who are enthusiastic about moving ahead can forge on. This variation in abilities is the expectation, not the exception, which helps reduce unhealthy competition and comparison between students.
Demonstration of Learning
Students are assessed on their knowledge of particular concepts (which align with standards) on a continual basis. Teachers track their students’ learning daily and weekly, recording their progress. The scope and sequence of Montessori materials is based on a scaffolding system, in which each lesson builds on the one before it. In order to have success in understanding a concept, students must first have a solid foundation and mastery of the previous concepts. Our educators serve as guides through this self-guided learning process.
All of our campuses adhere to the most stringent Montessori standards and unite with the Association Montessori International.
