Montessori Program

Welcome to the AISD Montessori Program

In 2014 the Annette Island School District was given a grant to start a Montessori Program for the Elementary School.

Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori and characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development. Although a range of practices exists under the name “Montessori”, the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and the American Montessori Society (AMS) cite these elements as essential.
