Blog : It's Admission Season at Brixham Montessori

By Patrick Haigis | Oct 29, 2014 | in

The Brixham Montessori Friends School is a small independent school located in York, ME, serving children ages 2-11 years old living in the seacoast region of southern Maine and New Hampshire. Brixham just hosted its first Open House of the year on October 14 with three more dates planned for November 11, December 9 and January 13.

Attending an open house is a great opportunity for prospective parents with a casual or serious interest in the school to peek into classrooms and tour the school with one of the staff members on the admissions team. If prospective parents like what they see, the admissions team will set up a more formal, one-on-one visit with them so parents can observe at length in the classroom, talk about their educational goals and hopes, and ask questions specific to their child and family.

For those who aren’t familiar, the Montessori model of education focuses heavily on topics such as discovery, freedom, and independence, harboring an opportunity to develop motivated and adventurous children. Originally founded in 1997, Brixham prides itself on values of simplicity, equality, community, and peace education. With the school’s 7:1 student-to-teacher ratio, Brixham assures that every student gets the attention – and the creative encouragement – they deserve.

Parents are encouraged to send in an application by January 15th for priority consideration.
