Tremont Montessori Vision Statement:
Tremont Montessori School (TMS) strives to be an exemplary Public Montessori School. In order to achieve this vision, we have articulated the goal of earning accreditation from the American Montessori Society (AMS).
In partnership with students, staff, parents, and the community, Tremont Montessori will follow the Montessori philosophy, materials, and curriculum together with the state standards to prepare each child for academic excellence, promote social responsibility and stimulate lifelong learning.
Tremont Montessori School (TMS) is guided by the developmental needs and sensitivities of the child and dedicated to building a culture of peace and justice. Helping children develop and practice the understanding, skills and capacities of peace is a key academic subject at our school. The principles of peace are critical for helping children develop their own intrinsic motivations for responding to conflict without aggression and to developing their sense of personal agency. It requires all of us—students, educators, staff, and parents—to recognize and support our PRIDE virtues and the 5 fundamental PBS principles. We also must teach and model the Peace Literacy Institute’s peace literacy concepts and implement Nautilus, a Montessori-based approach for student behavior support.
Our PRIDE virtues are:
Our 5 Proactive Behavioral Support Principles are:
1. We all want to do well.
2. We all have both physical and non-physical needs.
3. Challenging behavior occurs when the expectations and demands of the environment collide with lagging skills. The behavior is the signal of the collision.
4. Aggression is a signal of distress.
5. Peace literacy is a form of social-emotional learning and is as essential to develop as reading and math.
