Partnership Agreement

Partnership between School and Families

In our work with families over five decades, we have found that children benefit the most from their experience at Austin Montessori School when school and parents work in partnership. A partnership is defined as a relationship involving close cooperation between parties having specific joint rights and responsibilities. This agreement seeks to clarify these rights and responsibilities. It is in a spirit of partnership that Austin Montessori School has developed a school culture where school and families ascribe to a shared set of attitudes, values, goals, and practices. This mutual orientation allows children and adolescents at Austin Montessori School to experience a consistency between their school and home environment allowing for them to develop to their fullest potential. Partnership expectations between school and families are outlined in the document below.
