Sterling Montessori Academy and Charter School uses the philosophy and teaching materials of the Montessori Method developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Montessori education emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching or reading. Children in Montessori classes learn at their own pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. A student’s work at Sterling is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline and a love of learning.
