“We can only give to each child the chance to fulfill his potential possibilities.”
– Maria Montessori
OUR MONTESSORI ACADEMY
LSMA prepares students with the critical thinking and problem-solving skills essential for success in our rapidly changing world.
LSMA offers each student a distinctive educational experience: the opportunity to work at an individual pace and pursue personal interests and, at the same time, to collaborate, learn from, and teach others, to be a productive, active part of a community
At LSMA students learn reading, writing, and mathematics skills while focusing on understanding the process of discovery. Our students thrive in an environment that is supportive of individual learning styles and alleviates undue pressure by giving them the freedom to learn at their own pace. They develop critical thinking skills by actively conceptualizing, analyzing, and evaluating information through observation, experience, reflection, reasoning and communication.
Montessori is a worldwide proven educational philosophy that supports every child’s exploration and self-discovery, encouraging students to be active rather than passive learners.
Above all else, LSMA emphasizes that our community depends on each of us: teachers, parents, students. Respect for self and others, respect for the community and environment, and respect for diversity provide the foundation for our students’ strong sense of compassion, empathy, and the responsibilities inherent as a global citizen.
