Montessori Magnet School
About our school
The mission of Montessori Magnet School is to create and support the development of a responsible and culturally diverse community of individual learners through diligent work in, and adherences to, the Montessori philosophy and method.
As one of the district’s four magnet programs, our Montessori community develops self-motivated, teacher guided students who are able to work independently and collaboratively while always respecting themselves and their surroundings.
It is our belief that the mutual respect exhibited between teacher as guide and our learners results in greater student confidence, enthusiasm and achievement.
Our multi-aged classrooms from pre-K through second grade build strong foundations for student success. Mentoring and modeling for others are staples of the Montessori experience and by working together, we grow together as well.
Our program offers the best of both worlds. We strive to blend the philosophy and hands-on materials of Maria Montessori, the guidance provided by the New York State learning standards and the instructional resources provided by our district. The result is a student body that operates within the clear boundaries set by our teachers, able to explore their own standards-connected interests while their level of independence grows.
