Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

LMS offers holistic Montessori education, which orients the student toward the path of independent learning endevours. Students work individually or in small groups and are guided through their choices of resources and presentations. LMS classrooms have the abundance of a wide range of Montesori learning materials, which cover most areas of life and science. The materials are available to students at all times. Montessori education is preparation for life as an aid to life.

Teaching approach of the school

The Montessori teacher is a guide, who helps the child on their learning journey. The guide spends much of the classroom time unobtrusively observing students to consider what their next step could be and to offer presentations of materials accordingly. She/he supports the students in their interactions with each other by modelling positive and respectful relationships with others. The focus is not on teacher teaching, but rather on children learning.
