In operation since 1968, we are a Montessori school located in beautiful San Diego, CA with programs for children in Preschool through 6th grade. Our 10-month school year runs from September through June, and we also offer a Summer Program. In Montessori circles, the term “education for life” is often used. Success in school is related to the belief that in this environment, children are provided with opportunities to develop themselves as capable, self-directed, and independent learners. Dr. Maria Montessori created her specialized, hands-on curriculum methodology over a century ago based on years of observing children learning. Each classroom environment contains a wide range of materials that attract the child’s interest while presenting concepts in a carefully sequenced order, under the watchful guidance of Montessori-trained teachers.
