The Middle School
Alsion Montessori Middle School is a program designed to address the specific needs of the adolescent learner and to help the student become an independent and responsible young adult. Adolescents are in a time of flux intellectually, physically and socially, and their learning environment must reflect this. Thus the program is an integration of the current research in human development, the trends and issues in education, and the Montessori philosophy. Alsion provides opportunities for adolescents to be self-confident and gain self-knowledge, to belong to a community, to learn to be adaptable, to be academically competent and challenged, and to create a vision of their personal future and that of their society.
