East Tennessee’s new Montessori Middle School, located in Louisville, will be hosting two informational sessions at the Blount County Library on Thursday, Jan. 17 and Tuesday, Jan. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. These events are open to the public and everyone is invited. A Power Point presentation will give an overview of the school’s philosophy and curriculum. A question and answer session will follow the presentation with an opportunity to speak with staff. Application packets and information will also be available.
Montessori Middle School will open in August and will serve 6 to 8 grade students. Applications are now being accepted, and an early enrollment discount is available for students enrolling by Feb. 15. Though priority will be given to students with previous Montessori education, the school is open to all students who will be entering grades 6, 7, or 8 in the fall of 2008.
Montessori Middle School is very unique in that it is located in a farm setting, with plans to include gardening and animal husbandry in the curriculum.
