The education we believe in
We believe in education without barriers, where the subject matter and teaching methods are in continual evolution, so that we can shape people with open minds, ready for an ever-changing future.
And education that provides and promotes high quality learning that prepares students to live as responsible citizens in a globalized world.
At British Montessori, our mission is to develop the abilities of each one of our students in an environment that provides self-confidence and freedom to think and debate, where they can discover their own talents and skills, and become the protagonists of their own future.
Adapting our educational model to each student as we guide them to reach their highest potential is a challenge we take on with a deep sense of responsibility. It motivates us to prepare them to face the new challenges and seize the new opportunities that are ahead.
At British Montessori we work together with parents to foster healthy human relationships, positive attitudes, a strong work ethic and solid integrity in all of our students so that they may become exemplary citizens of the world and build a better society. We create a warm and welcoming environment where they can grow into responsible, open-minded and sociable individuals.
We foment the idea that teachers, school personnel and classmates are always shown consideration. In addition, tolerance is given to differing opinions that come up in debates and conversations.
We present this value as the energy that students need to reach an objective, or to try to reach it, even when they know that a task is difficult. This applies to academics as well as to any goal in life.
The satisfaction derived from a job well done and attention to details is what characterizes work of outstanding quality. This value always reflects determination, ability and personal sacrifice.
This is a value that says everything about a person and those around them. No matter what the circumstances, being decent, sincere, fair and trustworthy means not only respecting others, but also respecting oneself.
A value to be taught from earliest childhood in collaboration with parents. Completing an assigned task, or fulfilling a civic duty makes us trustworthy individuals.
Treating others as we would like to be treated, distinguishing right from wrong in every one of our actions and decisions. These define us as people with correct moral behaviour.
British Montessori offers British schooling for parents who are seeking the highest quality education for their children. Here we develop the abilities and talents of each student through subject matter and experiences following the same curriculum taught in the United Kingdom, a world-renowned model.
We foster our students’ capacity to act independently so that they become accustomed to making decisions on their own. They learn to act, choosing among different options autonomously.
In general, in any area of life and, particularly, in difficult situations, remaining constant in working towards an objective, and persisting in our beliefs and attitudes will be the foundation for success.
In order to make the best decisions in a difficult moment, our students need self-confidence. This quality also reflects self-esteem and the deep belief that they are prepared to successfully carry out any task or achieve any goal.
At British Montessori, we foster the desire to discover something new or gather information to reach a conclusion because it is one of the cornerstones of learning, and to personal and professional growth.
Participation in teamwork or pair work to carry out a project is an important part of learning. It promotes a spirit of generosity and cooperation that should be promoted from early childhood.
Questioning the status quo has allowed humans to evolve and progress in all areas of Science. Fomenting critical thinking in our students is fomenting reason, and looking toward the future with hope and expectation.
CCommunicating an idea or an opinion to another person or in front of an audience in an articulate manner, using a well-structured argument, within a proper context is one of the most valuable skills our students can develop, for both their personal a professional lives.
