Dear Parents,

As the Director of this unique comprehensive Montessori school, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. Our remarkable staff, involved parents and committed students come together to make Enquiring Minds Montessori a wonderful place to be challenged intellectually, grow socially, and develop as independent thinkers and problem solvers.  Setting high academic expectations for all children coupled with high standards for teaching and learning is what drives our work every single day, and for which supportive systems for both students and teachers are built.

An integral part of Enquiring Minds Montessori’s reputation has been built on the strength of our arts-enriched Casa Program. Children enrolled in this program are exposed to extensive enrichment in both academics and the arts.  Our Casa program further develops the child through Language, Movement, Music, Art, Voice and Drama. These programs, like the core activities, are not considered recreational activities but rather intensives.

Our core values reflect a commitment to provide students with personalized support in a variety of ways.  Our responsibility is to address the needs of the whole-child.  A child’s sense of belonging is a key component of emotional and social wellness at school. This approach helps to instill within our student body a sense of personal pride and love of and for our school.

As we provide students with what is needed at school, we believe that education occurs in each home and in the community. The success of a Montessori School is very dependent on parent involvement. We encourage parents to become involved in their child’s program, supporting the educational and social experiences, and sharing in the joys and satisfaction that their child experiences in his or her own learning. With parents as our partners, our children can work to their fullest potential.  Though we are proud of our past successes, we do not rest on them, and we continually raise expectations for ourselves as a learning community. Whether you are an existing or future Enquiring Minds family, I invite you to be a positive force in this work!

I look forward to working with you and your child(ren) as we work toward an academically successful school year.
