Dr. Montessori’s Philosophy
Dr. Maria Montessori put an emphasis on the holistic approach of educating a child, ensuring that students get individualized attention. We also integrate a focus on community and environmental awareness into our courses.
Fostering a Love of Learning
Our custom approach treats your child as the unique person that they are. Rather than drilling memorization of facts that are quickly forgotten after the lesson is over, we provide an open and supportive environment where children can learn the way that suits them best, at their own pace.
In addition to their college degrees, all our teachers have completed a comprehensive Montessori accreditation process. Our teachers are committed to the education and care of our Turtle River Montessori family and many have chosen TRM for their own children.
The Montessori high school program was launched to accomodate the needs of many Turtle River Montessori families. Parents had expressed an interest and a sincere desire to continue a model of authentic education that develops different skill sets beyond subject domain to the Four Pillars of Learning. The TRM Progressive High School is an accredited learning community based on the fundamentals of Montessori education including:
- Developmental appropriateness
- Brain-Based instruction
- Student directed learning
- Life skills development
- Global orientation
- Integrated curriculum
- Social-emotional learning
