Our mission at Alsion Montessori’s private Middle School and High School is to foster and nurture the holistic development of our students. This means promoting their growth intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially and psychologically. We want to empower Alsioners to be global citizens with a deep and ethical understanding of their responsibilities to humanity.
To achieve these goals, our Middle School uses the Montessori method of instruction. Our teachers, either certified by the American Montessori Society (AMS) or oriented by the North American Montessori Teachers Association (NAMTA), make Alsion a fertile setting for mastery in the core subjects of art, communication, English, history, language, literature, mathematics and the sciences. That our 7th to 9th graders grasp these subjects firmly—through individualized instruction, hands-on academics, and self-propelled drive to learn—can be attributed to how our pedagogy follows the precepts of Maria Montessori.
Our high school, which is an early-college program, builds on the foundational work laid down by the middle school. From 10th to 12th grade, our students are immersed in a rigorous scholastic regimen that includes Advanced Placement classes and, for the most part, college courses. The accelerated and comprehensive nature of the program, in addition to extracurricular opportunities, prime our graduates for further studies in four-year universities and make them conscientious caretakers of the world we all inhabit.
