Classrooms are stocked with  scientifically-designed Montessori manipulatives and resource materials to facilitate inquiry and provide a concrete understanding of abstract concepts. The Ivy School  is committed to Peace Education and anti-bias/anti-racism and integrates this into the Montessori classroom with ongoing lessons in social justice, respect and responsibility.

By embracing the Montessori educational philosophy aligned  with Common Core  State Standards,  Ivy School  students work to achieve  academic excellence and are intrinsically motivated, independent thinkers who love to learn.
