Lexington Montessori School is an independent day school serving toddler through eighth grade enrolling approximately 230 students. Located in historic Lexington, MA, we are twenty minutes from Boston, just off of Route 2 and minutes from Alewife Station. LMS is a learning community committed to the Montessori philosophy of educating the whole child and is looking for professionals who are committed to child development and the principles of Montessori and anti-bias education.
The Lexington Montessori School community works to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self-assurance, and a love of learning. We respect the uniqueness of each student by helping each child to develop skills at periods of greatest readiness and sensitivity.
Our program provides a creative and adaptive environment that responds to the needs of the children. We seek to balance academic and social development to foster responsibility and cooperation within a supportive learning community.
Our students learn to view themselves as contributing members of a diverse global community. We respect and value differences, and look with an open mind at all members of the community, seeking to understand and value them for who they are. The staff, the parents and the children communicate clearly and openly and treat each other with honesty and mutual respect.
