Our philosophy is based on the teachings of world renowned educator Dr. Maria Montessori who believed students should be allowed to learn in an individualized way in an environment prepared to best encourage their exploration and growth. Our students experience a comprehensive education that encompasses language, mathematics, history, science, computer skills, geography, and foreign languages. At MAEL, we don’t take a “teach to the test” cookie-cutter approach to education. Instead, children work at their own pace, a philosophy that allows each student to reach his or her fullest potential. In fact, it is common for children to be working above grade level.
A complete fine arts program of art, music, and band rounds out the educational experience. Physical education classes and a variety of team sports enrich the whole child.
Our graduates not only perform at their highest academic ability, but also excel as school leaders in the arts, sciences, sports, and community service.
