The Montessori School of Silicon Valley Admissions Guidelines serve to ensure both the school and family make continuing efforts to embrace the Montessori philosophy.
A key step to a child having a successful learning experience is for families to understand the philosophy and core values of the school. Successful long term family/school relationships typically result when this understand begins prior to admission.
To that end, we help parents learn about the Montessori approach by providing multiple opportunities for parent education as part of the application process.
This better enables parents to make an informed decision in choosing whether or not to initially enroll their child at one of our schools. Parent education then continues throughout a family’s years at the school.
Once children are enrolled, parents are expected to attend regularly scheduled parent-teacher conferences and parent education events.
Our most successful parents also familiarize themselves with the philosophy, policies, and procedures contained in the Parent Handbook and resources provided by the Montessori School of Silicon Valley.
