Our Mission

Beach Park School is an independent, not-for-profit school for children ages three through eighth grade.

Our mission is to assist students in becoming open-minded, compassionate people who value learning, respect humanity and appreciate the diversity of the human spirit.

Through our program, based on the Montessori method, we strive to allow students to become well-trained in the basic academic areas, fulfill their creative potential and gain satisfaction in their physical, intellectual, emotional and social development.

Beach Park School’s atmosphere promotes individual rights and the fundamental values of kindness, honesty, generosity, peace and non-violence.

Beach Park School does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, age, color, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin in administration of its policies.

Our Philosophy

The Montessori method nurtures a child’s love of learning while teaching the importance of respect, an ability to work with others and a strong sense of independence. Montessori teachers are trained to model these positive values as well as teach them.

At Beach Park School, our educators recognize that different children learn in different ways and guide them in their studies accordingly. They allow children to select their own learning activities.

Montessori students work in mixed-aged classrooms and as they grow in their skills, the teacher’s role is to guide them in their learning. They can go at their own pace and grow in their own ways, learning through direct experience, investigation and discovery.

Because Montessori programs are based on self-directed and noncompetitive activities, children develop strong self-esteem and the lifelong confidence to face both challenge and change with optimism.
