OUR GOAL Our goal for ArborCreek Montessori Academy is to be realized in three phases: Phase I – Upper Elementary Phase II – Middle School Phase III – High School OUR MISSION Our mission is to uphold the visionary, collaborative, and inclusive approach of the Montessori philosophy in order to foster a diverse learning environment where children from varied economic, social, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds can excel and flourish. OUR PHILOSOPHY We are committed to the true Montessori approach in education, namely that every student is entitled to respect, courtesy, encouragement, and kindness in a school setting that addresses the “whole child” by nurturing their social, emotional, and physical needs as well as academic skills. Children and adolescents will continue their journey in preparing to become citizens of the world, believing in themselves and their abilities to create positive change. The Montessori experience is not about producing worksheets and taking tests, it is about deep learning, self-discipline, self-discovery, character, values, and healthy relationships. OUR VISION Our vision is for our students to grow into responsible citizens of the great human family, with the understanding, ethics, and self-knowledge needed to transform our world.
