|Do teachers assign homework to their students?||
Most Montessori schools do not assign homework to children below the elementary level. When it is assigned to older children, it rarely involves page after page of busy work; instead, the children are given meaningful, interesting assignments that expand on the topics that they are pursuing in class. Many assignments invite parents and children to work together. When possible, teachers will normally build in opportunities for children to choose among several alternative assignments. Some-times, teachers will prepare individually negotiated weekly assignments with each student.

|Teaching approach of the school||
Montessori is an approach to education that encourages children to be constructive and take charge of their learning and development. It promotes self-discipline, independence and responsibility through age appropriate academics and practical work.
In the classroom, Montessori materials help guide the children in a self paced learning environment. Mixed age groups enhance positive social interactions, and Montessori trained teachers use learning activities, materials and projects to promote healthy social, emotional and academic development.
