STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Maria Montessori spent 40 years of her life observing how children learn.  Using specially designed hands-on materials and methods, she discovered how to foster in children a life-long love of learning.  Children at MSF are engaged in learning.  Our children work independently at their own pace.  They collaborate with fellow students in class, which Dr. Montessori believed was conducive to learning.  Our students learn to respect themselves, others and the environment.  Through their work, they become independent, critical thinkers who are adaptive and work well with others.  A Montessori education is designed, unlike traditional education, to cultivate and protect a child's natural passion for learning."
