What is Montessori

Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play.

How Montessori Works

Montessori classrooms help students make creative choices in their learning. In the classroom, a highly trained educator offers age-appropriate activities that help guide the students through the process. The students work in groups and individually to explore and discover knowledge of the world in order to help develop their maximum potential.

Tuskawilla Montessori proudly continues to inspire students with excellence and is accredited by both the American Association of Independent Schools (AISF) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)

Core Components of Montessori Education

A properly credentialed Montessori teacher has the skills and expertise to implement high-fidelity Montessori.

Trained Montessori Teachers

Classes with 3-year age spans facilitate mentorship among the students and encourage leadership development.

The Multi-Age Classroom

A hallmark of Montessori is specially designed materials that provide a hands-on approach to learning.

Using Montessori Materials

Students are given agency to self-select work, leading to intrinsic motivation and sustained attention.

Child-Directed Work

An extended period of “free choice” enables students to work at their own pace and without interruption.
