At Pocatello Valley Montessori School, children become so focused on discoveries about language, math, science, art and music that they “forget” this is school. The Montessori method capitalizes on children’s natural desire to learn. Our teachers fill the classroom with attractive manipulative materials that draw children to want to work with them. When you contribute, you help further Montessori education in Pocatello.

We believe that Montessori education is great for all children because it ignites the child’s curiosity and allows him to pursue learning at the pace that best meets his needs. The Montessori classroom enables a child to soar. Maria Montessori said it best when she said, “We claim that the average boy or girl of twelve who has been educated till then at one of our schools knows at least as much as the finished High School product of several years’ seniority, and the achievement has been at no cost of pain or distortion to body or mind.” (To Educate the Human Potential, Maria Montessori, 2007, 1)
