Morey Montessori Public School Academy has a dual curriculum, because at Morey Montessori we believe a well-rounded student is the result of a balanced, yet rigorous approach to learning.
Because it is a state-funded school, it must meet student achievement goals established by the state of Michigan and its authorizer. As such, students in grades K through 8 participate in state testing sessions, which include the state-required standardized tests. But as a nationally affiliated Montessori program, Morey also integrates the Montessori curriculum. Together, Morey’s challenging academic program emphasizes math, language and science, cultural studies, and community services. All these areas are explored by students with the guidance and encouragement of specially trained, certified and skilled teachers. Morey also offers art and physical education programs to keep children active – physically and creatively. In addition to a demanding academic program, Morey works to develop effective communication skills in students, coupled with practical life skills.
What We Do Works
When you combine highly qualified teachers that engage a student’s interest and feeds his or her natural hunger for learning with a sound curriculum that incorporates citizenship, leadership, and character development, you produce children who are ready learners, confident about their abilities, excited about achieving, and interested in becoming an active partner in the world around them.
Montessori tells us that the only really important thing in education is to teach the student how to learn. The motivation for learning must come from within the child. Human beings are born with the desire to know, the urge to explore, and the need to master their environment – in short, to achieve. In Montessori the learning environment is carefully prepared to train the senses, to stimulate curiosity, to satisfy the child’s need to know, and to protect him or her from unnecessary failure.
Through Montessori, children become…
Confident, creative thinkers, self-directed and problem solvers.
Responsible community members who understand active participation and involvement.
Young adults who are independent, resourceful, and socially secure.
