Greetings Montessori Families! If you are a returning family, welcome back! If you are joining us for the first time this year, welcome to the Montessori community! We are looking forward to a wonderful school year, and can’t wait to see all of our students back in their classrooms. Here at JPS Montessori, we are proud to offer students an educational environment that promotes individualized learning, respects working at your own pace, nurtures children’s innate desire to learn new things, and fosters a lifelong love of learning. Our academic curriculum aligns with Michigan state standards and frameworks, with an additional emphasis on social-emotional learning and 21st century skills. We strongly believe in the Montessori principle of educating the whole child.
