We educate 1st - 6th grade and inspire a passion for learning!
Child-centered education: Montessori education is achild-centered approach to teaching that is very different from traditional models of education. Teachers carefully consider each student's individual developmental and education level in an effort to meet the needs of the "whole child."
Life-Long Learners: We strive to provide a stimulating work environment that naturally draws children to learning They are given the responsibility to choose what they want to work on and when. By allowing students to explore their own interests, their learning experiences are richer, more intense, and long-lasting. Consequently our students love school and become life-long learners.
Leaders: Our classrooms are multi-leveled. Older, more experienced students guide and mentor younger students socially and academically. This fosters a greater sense of responsibility and confidence. They participate in group activities both in school and in the wider community. Consequently, our students display unparalleled leadership qualities.
We do participate in collecting BOX TOPS. Please save them up and bring them in. Easy way to earn money for our school.
School closure due to weather conditions please remember that Kalispell Montessori School will close if Kalispell District #5 closes. Please listen to Bee Broadcasting radio stations and KOFI radio for announcements about school closures. The Flathead County School website also lists all school closures (they list both public and private schools) http://flathead.mt.gov/schools/closures.php
Kalispell Montessori does not have late start school days. The school is closed if School District #5 has a late start.
Drop Off and Pick Up
Students need to be at school by 8:30 a.m. for outside stretches and running however once the running path becomes snow bound students will not run until it is clear of snow and ice in the spring (it’s also a little more challenging to run in snow boots). Please remember that school is dismissed at 3:15 p.m. Students should not be picked up any earlier unless there are special circumstances. It can be very busy prior to dismissal and the teachers need to dismiss their classes as a whole group. We are responsible for each and every student so check out is essential to make sure all students leaving the school are accounted for. All students must check out withtheir teacher before leaving.
