Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

A warm community and nurturing teachers. A home to a community of learners. A place where students embark on an enjoyable adventure, learning all about themselves, about others, and the world we share. A place where learning is an amazing journey, not a race.

Teaching approach of the school

The curriculum in a Montessori classroom is extensive and can take a child as far as they wish to go.

Teachers are trained to deliver lessons at the optimal moment of readiness for each child. Rather than delivering curriculum according to a predetermined timetable, at MST we follow the child’s interest and passion so that lessons meet students where they are and take them to the next level.

This individualised approach means that students find success and joy in the learning rather than frustration and boredom. We allow the child to self-construct, in a carefully prepared environment, under the guidance of trained Montessori professionals.
