" The real preparation for education is the study of one's self. The training of the teacher is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is a preparation of the spirit. "

From an early age our children participate in activities that include Assemblies, Physical Fitness Events, Science Fairs, Art Exhibitions, etc. Each commences with a salute to our Country and to the men and women who serve.

MSO productions are a site to see! The entire school participates, from sets, to costumes, to choreography! Parents are a part of the experience from the first auditions to the actual production at the Star Theater! The children are involved in each of the processes and take such joy in performing!

The job of the teacher is to follow the child in all their interests and to nurture that interest because in doing so, a passion is created that lasts a lifetime.

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”

" Our aim is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core. "

The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena. The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon.

The Montessori approach regards each child as an individual and as such, lessons are individualized and children have the opportunity to learn at their own pace and gain true mastery of subjects by doing so.

Sensory activities and opportunities are an intricate part of our curriculum. A child must experience in order to learn.
