Located in the Nepaug section of New Hartford on the 30-acre Millstream Farm, the Montessori Middle School Program follows an authentic approach to Montessori education centered on rigorous academic studies and purposeful, land-based work that emphasizes the interconnectedness among all academic subjects.
Dr. Maria Montessori realized that the adolescent should not be hampered by the limitations of the four walls of the classroom and a departmentalized curriculum. Therefore, she advocated for a land based, experiential form of education that would engage the mind as well as the hands.
In sync with Dr. Montessori’s vision and proposed syllabus, NAMTA Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies, as well as the National Associations of Independent School’s, trend schools for the 21st century, this program is a model of a “school of the future” promoting the skills and knowledge needs for the next century: global education, environmental sustainability, technology with purpose and connection and noted essential traits and skills for success in the 21st century: character, collaboration, critical thinking, creatively and communication.
