Choosing the Right School

Choosing the right School and learning environment for their child is probably one of the hardest decisions a parent has to make. It is even harder when faced with so much debate and division there are many factors to consider over the rights or wrongs of tests, league tables, and general shifts in education policy.

A Montessori education is a popular option for parents who value a child-centered approach to learning. In Fort Lauderdale, The International Montessori School is one such institution that has been providing quality education for over ten years.

The school’s curriculum is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, and educator who developed the Montessori method of education.

In the heart of Fort Lauderdale, at International Montessori School, children are encouraged to learn at their own pace and in their way. They are free to explore and discover, and teachers act as guides who help facilitate their learning.

This approach enables children to develop a love for learning and to become independent thinkers. As a parent, it’s essential to choose a school that aligns with your values and meets the needs of your child.

At our core, we strive to help children reach their fullest potential through happiness, self-assurance, and knowledge growth. It’s our goal that they develop a positive self-image and the skills needed to confidently navigate a world that’s constantly changing and filled with problems to solve.

We aim to empower them to find their place in the world, enjoy it, and succeed by providing them with the initiative and enthusiasm they need. The International Montessori School of Fort Lauderdale can provide a nurturing and stimulating environment that helps children reach their full potential.

We offer an interdisciplinary curriculum that adheres to the Montessori standards established by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and is designed to fit the specific needs of each child’s stage of development, nurturing their intrinsic desire for learning, and allowing each student to engage in their own learning experience.
