Triangle Lake Montessori Elementary School core beliefs can be found in its Mission Statement: Peace. Learn. Lead. The environment is purposely prepared in a manner that invites children to learn. This “prepared environment” empowers children to take control of their own learning and behavior. On entering each classroom, the beauty of plants and flowers, along with inviting materials, exude a “sense of order” imperative to the Montessori method. Classrooms are called “Children’s Houses” because the Montessori classroom is an extension of the home. The “Children’s House” is a place where children learn social skills and how to live together with harmony as well as academic skills. Children learn through experimentation and exploration with hands on materials. Teachers provide authentic experiences in order to achieve conceptual understanding. Montessori’s distinctive classroom structures are best taught in the primary years (ages 3-6). For this reason, new students are only accepted at Triangle Lake Montessori in our pre-K through second grade classes. Students in upper grades who have previous Montessori experience will be considered for admission if space is available.

Academic disciplines at school

Hands-on experiences replace traditional learning in Montessori classrooms, where the environment captures and builds on children’s natural curiosity. Students are actively engaged throughout the day, using specially designed materials that provide concrete, multi-sensory learning experiences. They learn everything from the alphabet to math and geography by physically handling tangible objects and materials, which is how children learn naturally and best. The Montessori classroom changes and grows with the developmental needs of each child.
