Buena Vista Montessori Elementary School

At Buena Vista, we believe that “Play is the work of the child” - Maria Montessori. A child’s experience in our prepared classroom environments, with prepared educators and staff, fosters the skills of concentration, meaningful pursuit of knowledge and exploration of the world around them. Each student is encouraged to play and share experiences alone or together. Buena Vista provides an environment where children can practice and develop their independence.
