Achievement: Increase academic achievement in specific content areas through a curriculum and instruction based on “best practices” and “brain-based education” aligned with our Montessori program. Equity: Continue to serve as a model of socioeconomic destratification for the district. Promote multicultural programs that meet the needs of our diverse population and build a strong community. Increase skills and knowledge of second-language learners through sheltered instruction. Organization: Create a safe and positive learning environment that protects and respects the rights of all individuals. Teach a consistent anti-bias curriculum across all levels.
Community Montessori is a focus school and the only public Montessori school in the Boulder Valley School District. We serve children from preschool through 5th grade. The preschool is tuition-based with scholarships readily available.
Our mission is to challenge the learning potential of each student through a child-centered, individualized approach based on respect for self, others and the environment. Manipulative learning materials are developmentally sequenced within the rich integrated curriculum. The classroom environment allows children to move freely and make challenging choices within safe limits and clear academic expectations.
Community Montessori's classrooms are multiage, primary (ages 3-6), lower elementary (ages 6-9) and upper elementary (ages 9-12). Students build a strong rapport with their teacher and peers through the continuity of the 3-year class cycle. Our program features outdoor learning centers as an expansion of each classroom.
We focus on family involvement and provide ample opportunities for parents to participate in their child's education. Services include after school childcare and extracurricular activities.
