We are an American Montessori Affiliated School and use authentic Montessori teaching methods to tailor the learning experience to the needs of each child. Our highly qualified and dedicated faculty members appreciate each child’s interests and abilities.

Students experience a well-rounded education in which fine arts, music, Spanish, physical education, health, and human development are part of the core curriculum.

Casa di Mir encourages children’s empathy, integrity, respect, and confidence. Students learn successful communication and conflict resolution skills. Our strong, caring community is a cornerstone of Casa di Mir. We encourage deep connections and respect between everyone at the school.

Casa di Mir provides a consistent learning environment from early childhood through middle school.  Students progressively build their skills, confidence, and motivation, and have the opportunity to learn from and mentor others.  Casa di Mir graduates are well prepared academically, socially, and emotionally to succeed in school and in life.

About Montessori

Montessori is a highly regarded educational philosophy that has become the single largest pedagogy in the world today.

In the Montessori philosophy, children are recognized as natural learners. Classrooms are designed to invoke curiosity, encourage self-directed learning, and adapt well to different interests and abilities.

Research has proven that the Montessori approach enhances academic performance, interest, and persistence in learning, memory, and creativity. It is very relevant for our 21st-century society.

Montessori environments focus on the social and emotional development of the child as well as the intellect. We consciously teach children how to be kind, peaceful, and socially responsible.

Our aim… is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.
