MAEL views athletics as an integral element in educating the whole child; every individual is encouraged to participate in one sport. We have a no-cut sports policy and our focus is on learning rather than on the outcome or final score.
Coaches, opponents, officials, and the playing arena are fully respected. This approach builds self-esteem, self-respect and a value system where team work and participation are at the core of the game. Athletics is a great avenue to apply Montessori principles in real life!
