Adolescence is a completely different time of life, and as such requires a completely different type of environment in order for these young people to give their best.
They need challenge, to learn through doing, to be heard, to be seen, to express themselves, to be safe, to care, to make a difference. The Montessori adolescent community is designed to let all of that and more happen.
Montessori considered that at this age groups should be small in order that close relationships could be formed and in order that no-one slipped through the cracks. Our inaugural group is small, but even as it grows the intention is for small groups with trusted adults and an exciting and innovative learning environment that caters for the whole child, not just the academics.
