Summit-Questa Montessori School is a community of educators, children, and families committed to the teaching principles and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori educational approach is based on respect for the individual child, respect for others, and respect for all forms of life.
The interrelationship among the child’s physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development is basic to Montessori education. At Summit-Questa, students are encouraged to achieve their full potential through work and play, individually and in small groups. These experiences allow for
critical thinking, problem solving, and positive peer interaction.
Our mission is to provide an environment for all children to express themselves, experience the joy of discovery, and have a sense of community and belonging. To achieve this mission Summit-Questa has created a school atmosphere where children can respond to their natural drive to work and learn. Children may progress at their own pace and rhythm with guidance from specially trained teachers.
Through integration of these principles, Summit-Questa has created a nurturing environment where children become life-long learners who possess an enthusiasm for learning, a positive self image, and the ability to adapt to a readily changing technology in the 21st century.
