Principal’s Greeting

Paul Casey, PrincipalWelcome to our website! I invite you to enjoy our site as you learn all that Montessori Magnet has to offer, which is wide and vast!
Montessori education has long been recognized around the world as a premier program committed to social reform and sustainability of the environment. The Montessori Method is taught in 22,000 schools and 125 countries.
At Montessori Magnet educators individually guide children to learn at their own pace- exploring and discovering based on their interests. Children learn through hands-on work. Children emerge as independent, confident, compassionate, responsible, individuals becoming self-reliant leaders in their community. Montessori education encourages innovative thinking and a love of learning. Famous Montessori graduates include the founders of Amazon, Google and Wikipedia.
We are a global community of students and families, drawing half of our students from Hartford and half from twenty+ surrounding towns. We maintain a beautiful balance of races, ethnicities and socioeconomics.
Our staff are ‘pioneers’ boldly advancing Dr. Maria Montessori’s life’s work of child-centered education as a means to social reform. Daily we are inspired by the beauty and enthusiasm of our children and the nobility of our work. Our community of children, families and staff is a family that comes together often in work, recognition and celebration of the CHILD.
I encourage you to stop by for a visit so we can share with you our gift to society.
