Frederick Montessori & Arts School is an international community of young learners. We take pride in and celebrate the diversity of cultures and languages of our children. In our Primary Classrooms, students were counting in Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Armenian, Russian, German and English—all the different languages spoken in their homes. Our children study all the continents each year, learning about the nations, cultures, plants and animals of each one. Additionally, there will be an in-depth enrichment into 3 different cultures and languages each year.
Montessori Education was designed by a medical doctor, having its original roots in Special Education. At Frederick Montessori & Arts School, we work with families and the medical community to create Individualized Education Plans for identification and early interventions for our children. We have a Special Education Resource Room available for specialists to provide services to our children during and after school—such as Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Orton-Gillingham tutoring, Social/Emotional Therapy, and Music or Art Therapy. Our Director has specialized training in Montessori-based special education methods and provides support to our Staff and services to our children.
