Parent orientation meetings will take place Wednesday, September 2, and Wednesday, September 9. Each is from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Meeting I is a conversation about the philosophy of Montessori: Why the method works. Meeting II is an introduction to the materials in the four major areas: practical living skills, sensorial materials, math, and language. See you then!
Horizon Montessori School kicked off the 2015-2016 school season with having the students learn the basics, which included learning how to
Carry a tray with a small pitcher of water from the shelf to one’s table
Roll and unroll a rug
Push in one’s chair before leaving the table

At Horizon Montessori School, we are concerned with the child’s most important creation: himself. Children who are happy and at peace with themselves will naturally extend themselves to others. Among our children, there is a feeling of unity and respect that goes beyond the classroom and will, we feel, remain a vital part of their lives. The principle of inner strength extending outward is what Dr. Montessori envisioned as the basis for their future, a concept which is proving within our grasp.
A preschool in Cleveland Heights, Horizon Montessori was founded in 1973 to provide for young children an atmosphere of responsibility and freedom – a realistic setting in which children can creatively develop an awareness of themselves and others. Located on half an acre of land, we offer the advantages of a cosmopolitan neighborhood, with the added feature of a spacious outdoor environment for nature study and recreation.The life of the school involves many people: an experienced and enthusiastic staff, committed and supportive parents, and energetic, confident children. Working together, we see the Montessori theory become reality as our children realize their potential in the exciting process of learning and self-discovery.

“Tom and I would like to thank you for the wonderful foundation for life that you provided for both of our children. They learned so many life skills at Horizon: how to focus and maintain attention, how to share and take turns, reading and math, etc., etc. Horizon made elementary school easy for them.” -TS and BS.
