Curriculum Overview

The main purpose of a Montessori education is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment based on developmental needs that will help the child establish an excellent foundation for creative learning.

The specific goals for the children who attend a Montessori school include:

  • Developing a positive attitude toward school
  • Individualized learning activities
  • Engaging in a learning task that particularly appeals to him or her geared to his or her needs and level of readiness
  • Working at his or her own rate, repeating the task as often as he or she likes, thus experiencing a series of successful achievement
  • Developing self-confidence

We are a partner school with Lake Superior State University. As authorizer of Macomb Montessori Academy, LSSU ensures that we have the support and resources to provide high quality and diverse educational opportunities for all of their charter school students.

As educators within the philosophy of Montessori, it is our mission to create an environment that directs the students toward self-actualization in all areas of study by recognizing their stages of development.
