How We're Different

Individualized Education

We tailor our curriculum to your child's unique interests to help stimulate a life-long love of learning

Mixed-age Classrooms

The classroom is a collaborative environment which helps students learn from and support one another.

Integrated Curriculum

Multiple subjects are interwoven through real-life projects to promote a strong understanding of the "bigger picture."

Hands-on Learning

Montessori students use concrete learning materials to promote a complete understanding of abstract concepts.

Our Philosophy

The Montessori Method

Montessori education arose from detailed observations of children at different stages of their development. The Montessori Elementary program is for children between the ages of six and twelve and is specifically designed to meet the needs of your child in this phase of development. This is a time of insatiable curiosity and excitement for learning.

We at VMS capitalize on this time in your child's life, and focus on listening to and observing your child in order to help guide them through an interesting yet challenging individualized curriculum. This experience will shape not only a child's knowledge and skills, but also their attitude about learning for the rest of their life.

Student Work Day

Student Work Days are from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm, on the last Friday of every month of the school year. On each of these work days, your child will act as a teacher and will give you a lesson on a material they have been working on. After the lesson, your child can choose to give you additional lessons or simply show you various things they have been working on.
