Philosophy and Mission
Developing Citizens of the World…
Our Mission: Intercultural Montessori develops confident, multicultural, multilingual children who respect diversity and community and who are caring, capable, enthusiastic, and committed to a lifetime of learning.
Intercultural Montessori Language School is a dual-language immersion school that nurtures learning in an environment that celebrates cultural differences and holds true to the philosophies of Maria Montessori. As the world changes, so do our local and global environments. The future will bring more diversity in the people with whom our children will live, work, and develop families and friends. This global village will favor citizens who are comfortable operating in culturally and economically diverse environments and who can speak multiple languages. Such individuals are more likely to help create cohesive communities and heal those that are divided.
Intercultural Montessori has used its unique blend of language immersion in a Montessori environment for 30 successful years. This approach has served as a role model for other programs, and is now being used in select schools all over the world.
Our Core values:
Whole-child development – Our focus on whole-child development through the Montessori approach fosters confidence, enthusiasm, and the joy of learning in our students.
Family and community – Our classroom culture helps create caring, compassionate children, and instills in them a sense of family, community, and respect for their environment.
Multiculturalism – Our multicultural setting enhances each student’s respect for diversity and ability to be at home in a diverse world.
Multilingualism – Learning in multiple languages develops overall intelligence, enhances cognitive development, and increases capacity for learning additional languages both now and later in life.
Academic excellence – We provide a learning environment that encourages and allows students to be self-directed, work at their own pace, and reach their full academic and intellectual potential.
