The Montessori Program at Ware Montessori Academy uses a child-centered approach. The Montessori method views the child as the one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It attempts to develop children physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively.
The goal of a Montessori education at Ware Montessori Academy is the natural development of students into self-motivated and capable lifelong learners with a strong sense of self and a natural desire for knowledge, understanding, and respect.
Montessori educators give interdisciplinary lessons in areas such as language, mathematics, history, the sciences and the arts, examining a wide range of subjects. These are typically given near the beginning of the school term and provide the basis for learning throughout the year. The lessons are designed to offer inspiration and open doors to new areas of investigation.
And just as traditional schools are mandated to administer standardized tests, public Montessori schools must also administer the same tests to their students. Overall, Montessori schools perform better, often exceeding state learning standards.
Considered by many as a quality education reserved for affluent preparatory school students, costing thousands of dollars in tuition, the public-based Montessori program at Longview ISD schools is free and makes its students feel welcomed, respected, valued, and empowered. It’s not about where our students come from, it’s where we’re helping them to go in their educational journey and in life.
