The mission of the New School is to provide an exceptional, holistic educational experience combining the Montessori philosophy with the latest pedagogical research.
The school is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation governed by a professional Board of Directors. The Board is the sole operating body of the school. More than twenty dedicated and highly qualified faculty are the backbone of our school. Our administration staff supports the faculty in providing security and safety as well as managing day-to-day business operations. A handbook provided to parents of enrolled children gives more details about the structure, procedures, and policies of the school. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns about school administration or operations.
The purpose of the New School Montessori Center is to build a professional community rooted in the research of child development. The proof of the Montessori Method lies in its ability to respond to the complexity of the modern child, reinforced by its historical relevance.The Center seeks to act as a visible and responsive resource to its students, faculty, and fellow members of the Montessori community. The guidelines that have evolved through the American Montessori Society and the Early Childhood Teacher Education committees of both that Society and the IAME (formerly MACTE) with its various evaluation processes provide the basis for our teaching standards and of our goals for students. These are augmented by effective strategies and further goals that have been realized by the core faculty in their cumulative years of teaching both adults and children.
