Community is at the heart of all we do at Bellevue Montessori School. Multi-age classrooms invite students to learn from and teach one another, fostering cooperation, empathy and respect. Students and staff from all classrooms interact and lend support to one another. During weekly staff meetings and book sharing, teachers exchange ideas and insights on Montessori education. Children are shown by example from teachers and peers the value of caring for others and friendship. Outside of their immediate environment, students are inspired to be stewards of the larger community through service projects.
