Secondary School

In the preschool and nursery section of the school which is the foundation stage, we use the Montessori curriculum.

MONTESSORI EDUCATION

  • The montessori Method of teaching expresses deep respect for children as individuals. There is deep concern for their social and emotional development. The Montessori environment is warm and supportive for the learners and no learner gets lost in the crowd. It consciously teaches children to be kind and peaceful. Learning is not focused on rote drill and memorization. The goal is to develop students who really understand their school work. The children develop self discipline and internal sense of purpose and motivation. After graduation from Montessori, these values serve them well in high school, college and in their lives as adults.

  • As a Montessori school, we reflect a highly diverse student body and the montessori curriculum promotes mutual respect and a global perspective. Every montessori class teaches critical thinking, composition and research. History lessons link architecture, the arts, science and technology. Children learn to care about others through community service . Montessori teachers facilitate learning and coach students who come to know them as friends and mentors. Children learn not to be afraid of mistakes; they come to see them as natural steps in the learning process. Montessori children learn to collaborate and work together in learning and on major projects. They strive for their personal best , rather than compete against one another for the highest grade in the class.

  • MONTESSORI CURRICULUM

  • Montessori offers a rigorous and innovative academic program. The curriculum is organized into a spiral of integrated studies, rather than a traditional model in which the curriculum is compartmentalized into separate subjects with given topics considered only once at a specific grade level. In the early years, lessons are introduced simply and concretely and reintroduced several times over succeeding years at increasing degrees of abstraction and complexity.

  • The course of study uses an integrated thematic approach that ties the separate disciplines of the curriculum together into studies of the physical universe, the world of nature,and the human experience. Literature,the arts, history, social issues, political science, economics, science and the study of technology all complement one another. This integrated approach is one of Montessori's great strengths.

  • By allowing children to develop a meaningful degree of independence and self discipline, Montessori sets a pattern for a life time of good work habits and a sense of responsibility. Students are taught to take pride in doing things well. Montessori children are free to move about , working alone or with others at will. Children learn by doing and this requires movement and spontaneous investigation.

  • Many exercises especially at the early childhood level, are designed to draw their attention to the sensory properties of objects within the environment:size, shape, colour, texture, weight, smell, sound etc. Gradually children learn to pay attention, seeing more clearly small details in the things around them. They begin to observe and appreciate their environment , which is a key in helping them discover how to learn.

  • Freedom is a critical issue as children begin their journey of discovery. Our goal is less to teach them facts and concepts , but rather to help them fall in love with the process of focusing their complete attention on something and solving it's riddle with enthusiasm.

  • The Montessori classroom is a learning laboratory in which children are allowed to explore, discover, and select their own work. The Montessori classrooms are not run by the teachers alone, students are taught to manage their own community and develop uncanny leadership skills and independence. They become comfortable,and confident in their ability to master the environment , ask questions, puzzle out the answer, and learn without needing to be spoon fed by an adult.

  • We operate a merged curriculum made up of the British National Curriculum and the strength of the Nigerian curriculum in the primary section of the school. We make it a point of duty to keep challenging our children in their learning.
