Our Philosophy

The Montessori School of San Diego is dedicated to the philosophy that isn't always talked about, but is still applicable and still as strongly practiced in the classrooms now as it always has been: "The Child Comes First."

We, as teachers, all need to remember this conviction. This is what sets aside good Montessori teachers from others. We are able to bring to the classroom something fresh each day, something from which the children can see and feel and grow. We remember that each and every child needs and deserves respect. That is why a Montessori teacher will speak to the child in his/her class with respect and discipline is low-key. At times the situation can be trying as well as tiring, yet each time the Montessori teacher digs a little deeper for the patience and understanding of that one child who needs extra attention.

This dedication of the Montessori teachers, especially of our teachers, is what makes the method applicable and so valuable. We have an excellent reputation and the administration will always strive to maintain it by employing only the best and most dedicated teachers.

Our Students

The Montessori School of San Diego encourages inclusion of a diverse group of students from many different walks of life. Children from every ethnic and religious background, as well as social family structure, are welcome.

A high percentage of entering children to the school will find the Montessori classroom an easy place in which to transition. Because of the mixture of ages in the classroom at the beginning of the school year, half to two thirds of the classroom students are returning and therefore can model the behavior and classroom routine for the new, younger children. Those children who have a more difficult time entering a new environment are nurtured by both the older students and the teachers. Soon after the beginning of the school year, observers witness a smoothly efficient, self directed classroom emanating a peaceful hum of activity.
