A Cleveland preschool, 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 in Cleveland Heights, 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.
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.
“Both E and K are thriving. E is just finishing his first year at CWRU, and K will be a junior this fall at Heights High. Kathleen and I both agree that this is due in no small part to their experience under your direction at Horizon Montessori.” -RL and KL.
