Our vision is to cultivate a life-long love of learning in our children and inspire them to realize their full potential while enjoying life’s journey and positively contributing to the world around them.
Guided by the Montessori philosophy, our mission is to provide a caring school community that nurtures every child's natural curiosity for learning and supports full development of academic, social, artistic, physical and life skills.

At Maple Tree Montessori School, our faculty is dedicated to fostering a passion for learning. Our levels, Preschool and Elementary are distinguished by a grouping of children covering a multiple layer learning cycle. This multi-aged learning environment stimulates the development of cultural literacy for each child.
The focus in the Montessori classroom is to create a learning setting that is individual based and to challenge each child academically. Our goal is to create self confident, caring citizens of the world. Their intellectual, moral, physical, creative, artistic and musical development is equally important.
Dr. Maria Montessori developed the curricula and materials for the child to be exposed to all facets of learning. The reading and writing skills are a spring board into the deep, rich experience, which is known as the Montessori experiences for the child. These skills enable the child to gain access to the real focus and substance of a Montessori Education: Sensorial, Practical Life, Math, Language, Geography, Biology, History, Politics, Peace Education, Zoology, Music and Art History. The Montessori tradition evolved out of the European tradition of academic excellence and offers and exciting, education for the children from birth to 18 years old.
The difference between the Lower and Upper at the SD/Elementary levels is a gradual growth experience toward project based learning. The children research topics in depth spanning several weeks and present their finding to their peers. The children utilize an online recordkeeping to record their individual work load so that parents may review their work cycles. The goal is to lead the child into abstract learning across the curriculum.
We inspire the children to learn how to think. Rather than present students with all the “right answers”, Montessori teachers ask the “right question” and challenge them to find new solutions or discover the answers on their own. At Maple Tree Montessori School, the children work together for many years and become a family and true community of learners, which each person is valued and given the ability to shine in all areas of their development.
