The Cornerstone School is deeply committed to an environment that fosters a deep respect for children as unique individuals. We work from a deep concern for their social and emotional development. A Montessori education at Cornerstone directly and consciously teaches children to be kind and peaceful. Montessori education assumes that children are born intelligent. At Cornerstone we honor learning differences and help students develop an understanding of their own unique learning needs. The concept of freedom and responsibility is a key concept at Cornerstone. Freedom follows responsibility. Competence, independence, and the willingness to embrace challenge are highly valued outcomes of a Montessori education at Cornerstone.
