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 that complement the materials they’re mastering  Additionally students learn how to help others and work cooperatively through dynamic field based learning, historical dramas, science projects, student created yearbooks and newsletters, community service and much more.   

Students at Torit do not waste time sitting through group lessons on what they already know or on what is too difficult for them.  The expectations 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.  In addition to exposure to high academic demands, the students 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."
