Montclair's Philosophy Statement
The goal of our school is to provide an educational setting meeting the needs of all students, regardless of gender, race, disability, ethnicity or religious point of view. This environment must also be safe and inviting. The staff will have academic, social, and emotional goals for each student that will enhance student self-image. We embrace the philosophy that: "All children will learn to their fullest capacity" while incorporating research on how the brain learns and the science of learning meshed with the art of teaching.
We will deliver instruction through the multiple intelligences with an integrated curriculum that makes connections through themes/units to enhance real life experiences. We will incorporate Multiple Intelligences Theory (Gardner 1993) and Integrated Thematic Approach (Kovalik 1992) to the delivery of instruction, life-skills, school wide agreements, a constructivist math, and a balanced literacy program.
