Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Opened in September 2017, Ellipse Montessori Academy is a bilingual school from pre-kindergarten to college based in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. Our mission is to educate and transmit, thus accompanying each child towards a solid academic base while respecting his/her personality. All our guides are AMI-trained with ongoing training and pedagogical supervision.

Our values:
- Engagement
- Trust
- Professionalism
- Loyalty
- Team Spirit

Communication with the parents is a must for us, which is why we are 100% transparent, available, reliable and caring.

Teaching approach of the school

Ellipse Montessori Academy uses the Montessori pedagogy, a method adapted to accompany the natural development of the child through an environment prepared and adapted to the characteristics and needs of his age.

We focus education on the construction of intelligence, as well as the acquisition of knowledge:
- Respect the needs and rhythm of each child
- Constantly awaken their curiosity
- Develop their sense of adaptation
- Foster the joy of learning rather than the anguish of failure
- Mixing ages to encourage emulation and mutual aid rather than competition
- The educator is a guide and the guardian of the environment.

Providing the keys to the child's future, allowing them to grow up with core values within a supportive and structured environment.
