Dr. Montessori had a vision for the Early Secondary program, and students at May Sands Montessori School are guided in their academic development using the essential components of her vision. The students form a strong community through activities that foster cooperation and leadership. The curriculum is advanced and largely project-based, and includes blocks of uninterrupted work time for students to collaborate and gain a deeper understanding of the content. The Guides lead students in the development of seminars, which enhance collaboration and nurtures active listening skills. Students are also guided in selecting community service projects within the school as well as in our greater community. In addition to cultivating strong academic scholars, May Sands Montessori School nurtures citizens who demonstrate responsibility, respect and service.
