School Community


A strong and supportive community driven by our mission and educational philosophy is what you will find at Alta Vista Montessori School. Our faculty and staff are committed to a unified educational method dedicated to following the children through all the stages of their growth and development as they lay the foundation for their success in adult life.Children need guidance, modeling and mentoring and the support of their community. Nothing is as important to your child’s success as your involvement. At Alta Vista Montessori School, we encourage and welcome our parents to take an active role in their child’s school and to join our faculty and staff in creating a strong and supportive community around the children. Opportunities to visit, observe, learn, and volunteer are offered throughout the year with events such as

  • Classroom Visits for Mothers and Fathers
  • Classroom Observations starting in October through May
  • Montessori for Parents Sessions
  • Social Gatherings
  • Fundraisers
  • Field Trips
