Mission & Philosophy
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.
“Our son has had a full academic career at Intercultural Montessori Language School, spanning pre-K through 8th grade. The strong cohesion between the school’s dual language and Montessori programs makes for an exclusive education. It has been a joy to watch our son grow from simply reciting his numbers and colors in Mandarin to developing a command over the language, both in written form and contextually. Exposing him to one of the most difficult languages at the age of 3 years, when his brain was hard wired for language reception in an environment that fosters peer and group collaboration, allowed a simple mean of communication to blossom into an integrated love, respect, and objectivity for the complexity of cultures that shapes his outlook of the world today. We greatly value the outcome of his full 11-year immersion education!”

“We love Intercultural because it has exposed our daughter to the world! We speak Spanish and Italian at home, but chose Chinese to give her a new challenge. The staff fosters children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn every day, and the Montessori philosophy creates a stimulating environment to keep children excited and challenged. We have truly seen our daughter blossom, and we are extremely happy to be part of the Intercultural Community!”
