Our Perspective

How we see Kanata Montessori

Kanata Montessori has been around since 1974 and offers a community for students that begins at 18 months and extends to students graduating from grade twelve. The program has been designed to support learners seeking university acceptance, and to ensure they can successfully graduate from the university program of their choice. With a total student population of 500 students, the environment is small and close-knit, though very much a part of the global Montessori community. The school is highly respected for it's intentional development of student's; independence, confidence, critical thinking skills, ability to communicate and work effectively with others, and leadership skills. The ideal student is one able to thrive within an active, academically oriented learning environment.
