Parent - Teacher - Child Partnership
We believe a successful Montessori experience depends on a solid partnership between the parent, the teacher and the child. At GMS, parents are encouraged to become true partners in their child’s educational journey. Together we help each child reach his or her full full potential and become a responsible, global citizen. There are five things every parent can do:
At GMS, our faculty and staff work very hard, each and every day, to provide each children with the best possible Montessori education available. As a Montessori school, we are different from conventional schools. Our first commitment is to the multi-dimensional development of the child. Our curriculum is challenging and you can expect your child to be provided with challenging work that is appropriate for her. Parents of our graduates tell us that their children are ready and well prepared for high school and are poised for successful futures in high school, college and life in the 21st century.
While academics are important, equally significant is your child’s social, emotional, spiritual, and physical development. We focus on the whole child and that is what sets us apart from other schools. At GMS, parents can expect that we will maintain our high professional standards and accreditation; integrity and focus on the needs of the individual child in harmony with the life of the entire GMS community, a nurturing environment that is physically and emotionally safe and supportive, and inspires a child’s desire to learn. You can expect mission-driven decisions that embody good stewardship and responsible management to ensure the long-term future of our school. Along with open, respectful, and timely communication from faculty and staff. If you have a comment, question, suggestion or concern. Let us know!
Land Program from The Greensboro Montessori School on Vimeo.The GMS Land Laboratory program was devised by a team of Montessori teachers in 2004 and is now in it’s 10th year. Based on Maria Montessori’s vision of the Erdkinder, early adolescent students travel to a wooded retreat in Oak Ridge, NC every six week to eight weeks for 3 nights and 4 days, camping with no electricity and transporting their water in jugs and bins on student-made “chariots” constructed from old bicycles and baby carriages.
