Welcome to Smart Kids Montessori Academy, where we are more than just a traditional private school . We equip your child with knowledge for life ; the essential skills and knowledge he needs to flourish as a joyous child today and as a successful adult tomorrow .
Our mission is to provide a high quality of education according the standards of The American Montessori Society ( AMS ) .
The Montessori Method of education which is our curriculum, was founded by Dr. Maria Montessori who also founded the Association Montessori Internationale , (AMI), in 1929 . Instead of emphasizing memorization, with students all doing the same thing at the same time the same way , the Montessori method deploys student-selected work , small-group instruction , a lack of exams and grades. And collaboration , often between students of different ages . Montessori stressed the importance of developing social skills alongside academic ones .
The hallmark of a Montessori program is the prepared classroom environment. Each of Smart Kids' classroom is equipped with materials that first teach through the senses and later lead to reading, writing, advanced mathematics, problem solving, geography, science and cultural studies. Visual arts, music and movement are interwoven through out the days' activities.
