Dear Montessori Peaks Academy (MPA) families, prospective families, and community members,

Welcome to another new school year. We are excited to begin this year, as we have so much to look forward to. It is such a privilege to partner with your family in guiding your child’s education and supporting you throughout the parenting journey.

This year, MPA’s dedicated and passionate staff will continue to focus on achieving high standards of individual excellence by guiding our learners based on the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori. Our community values the education of the whole child, which includes the academic, emotional, physical, and social development of our learners. We aspire to prepare each child to uniquely and positively contribute to the larger, global community by supporting students as they develop independence, become self-learners, and engage in work and learning that aligns with what they are ready for. Additionally, as Maria Montessori lived through two world wars, a core component of Maria Montessori’s curriculum included an emphasis on peace education. Our community will continue to prioritize guiding our students in learning to peacefully resolve conflict and challenge.

MPA’s emphasis on independence, the uniqueness of each individual, high standards in academics and behavior, and a culture of peace, grace, and courtesy make our school community a wonderful one to be a part of.
Please see below for the many ways in which you can connect and get involved at Montessori Peaks Academy:

School Accountability Committee (SAC)
Families, Staff and community members work together to provide input in decision making here at Montessori Peaks Academy. We discuss assessment data, educational programming, budget, school initiatives, safety, and community partnerships.

Board of Directors
Effective governance is a critical component of a high-quality charter school, and our board is responsible for ensuring effective organizational plannings while developing a sound strategic plan to support governance and leadership. The MPA Board of Directors is an elected group of MPA volunteers who are committed to unparalleled stewardship of the MPA mission, vision, and educational model.
