The mission of Austin Montessori School is to guide the intellectual and character development of each child along a path towards his full and unknown potential. Through parent and staff education, we work to develop a school and family culture that preserves and protects a healthy childhood.
Over the past decade, the pervasive use of media and technology has drastically affected the lives of families and has potentially harmful effects on the development of children. When children encounter media and technology in developmentally inappropriate ways, it can present obstacles to their healthy social, emotional, and intellectual development.
At Austin Montessori School, concepts and skills which include the use of technology are introduced to children and adolescents when they are developmentally ready to learn and benefit from them. Students are enabled and empowered to use technology as a resource and a tool only after they have fully benefited from the concrete and experiential foundation that is the cornerstone of the Montessori pedagogy.
