Latin American Montessori Bilingual embraces the Montessori philosophy that every child is a natural learner. We combine Montessori with language immersion to create an educational environment with the goal of bi-literacy in English and Spanish. Science, social studies, math, language, art, music, movement, character, and community development are all integrated within a holistic learning process. At monthly Peace Ceremonies, students present projects and performances to the community to demonstrate the connection between their academic learning and their concept of themselves as "peace ambassadors." They reach goes far beyond its school walls with outdoor learnig, camping, nature walks, and field trips. And students excel academically while demonstrating respect for self, others, and the environment.
