About the School

The mission statement of Anchorage Montessori School is to make Montessori education a dynamic and positive force in the lives of children, in families and in our community. The following principles support this mission:  We believe in the dignity of children and in their inherent right to our protection, assistance, and guidance in fulfilling their potential;  We are committed to the Montessori philosophy and trust the Montessori approach to education;  We wish to support parents’ efforts to raise capable, joyful, confident children without undue stress or financial hardship and without abdication of their parental responsibilities;  We are willing to share our lives with children and to grow and learn alongside them;  We are dedicated to the well-being, integrity and development of the larger Montessori community;  It is our most fervent desire to help bring about a peaceful world in which every person’s contribution is cherished and in which all barriers to understanding and acceptance have been removed.
