Welcome to Sands Montessori!
A Message from Principal, Mrs. Julie Ayers:
We are off to another great start here at Sands Montessori School! Thank you for continuing to engage in positive ways in support of our students. Our staff recently revisted our school's shared vision, mission and core value beliefs. I would like to take this opportunity to share those with our parents and community members and ecourage each of us to be mindful of our commitment to support each and every child in our school.
VISION: Sands Montessori is a community of capabl, empowered, responsible, and lifelong learners.
MISSON: Sands Montessori, a Cincinnati Public School, educates the whole child to be a lifelong learner and a responsible contributor to our global community. We do this through culturally intergrated education that nurtures the relationship between child, parent, school and community.
VALUES: We nurture a love of learning. We model respect for self, respect for others, and respect fo life. We value work. We nurture a sense of belonging. We measure progress and achievement based on one’s own ability and interests. We embrace and reflect the diversity of the people and world around us. We foster peace.
OBJECTIVE: Sands Montessori School will maintain an “Excellent” Ohio Report Card designation while fully applying Montessori philosophy and teaching methods consistently in all classroom environments for all its students.
