Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to Eduardo Mata Montessori! We are excited to embark on such an exciting adventure with your student! Our vision is to provide an academic foundation which allows our students to be successful life-long learners. We will do this by providing a Montessori education for all our children through focusing on the whole child academically, socially and emotionally!
Vision Statement: To provide an academic foundation which allows our students to be successful life-long learners.
Mission Statement: To provide an authentic Montessori education by focusing on educating the whole child academically, socially, and emotionally for all children.
Our main purpose is to improve student academic achievement.
Effective instruction makes the most difference in student academic performance.
There is no excuse for poor quality instruction.
With our help, at risk students will achieve at the same rate as non-at risk students.
Staff members must have a commitment to children and a commitment to the pursuit of excellence.
