the torit montessori Mission
Our mission is to provide bright and capable students the opportunity to guide their own learning through individualized work plans, vibrant hands-on materials, and traditional textbooks (in the elementary years) that complement the materials they’re mastering, all with close teacher guidance. Additionally, students learn how to help others and work cooperatively as they grow into the elementary years, with dynamic field based learning, historical dramas, science projects, student created yearbooks and newsletters, community service and much more.
The expectations for students are high and teachers are vigilant in ensuring that students are reaching their individual potential with a rich curriculum in language arts, math, science, geography and history. Students don’t need to sit through group lessons on what they already know or on what is too difficult for them. Students at all ages learn Arabic, Mandarin and Spanish and are provided with numerous historical and current frameworks for considering the global world in which they live.
"Torit is simply remarkable in its dedication to educating the whole child."
