To create a warm, loving, secure environment that fosters creativity, curiosity, self-confidence and independence so that students may become models of peace and can succeed in an evolving world. We are committed to maintaining an environment that creates a curiosity about learning, while engendering a love, respect and understanding of self and others.
We want children to do more than just learn. We want them to think. We want them to think about what they think about. And then to take that understanding, to be changed by it, And then to change the world. And we believe that this begins here. It’s preschool that will transform the world.…
MEISA involves the academic rigor of core subjects, balanced by an emphasis in writing, critical thinking, public speaking and the arts. Our curriculum involves the integration of the common core within the Montessori academic scope and sequence, with an underpinning of lessons in character development, leadership and responsibility to self, community and the world.
Our 18 month old to 5 year olds (toddler through kindergarten) enjoy school at a relaxed pace in a renovated Craftsman. The main classroom has a walnut natural wood interior; all classrooms are carpeted for a home-like atmosphere.
There is a redwood deck and a newly renovated playground and children’s garden.
Our 1st through 6th grade students love this campus which includes an enclosed playarea with 2 playstructures upon a soft turf mat, an optional outdoor eating-area with new wood picnic tables, 4 spacious light-filled classrooms, a large auditorium and stage and a separate office, area all within the historic St. Barnabas campus. All classrooms are carpeted.
