Lakeview is the first Montessori Elementary School in the region.
Montessorians understand that a child's self-esteem comes from an internal sense of pride in his or her own accomplishments. The goal of a Montessori school is to prepare young leaders who are fully qualified to enter the academic programs of their choice at a preferred university or college.
A Montessori school promotes a hands-on approach to learning versus a focus on seatwork. Students interact with others of different ages, in an environment where younger students can learn from the older children and older children have an opportunity to lead.
The Montessori experience begins with a deep respect for children as unique individuals, and an accredited internationally developed curriculum that includes five main pillars: practical life, sensorial, math, language and cultural learning.
