A Montessori program with purposeful, tailored instruction to help students thrive.
Border Star Montessori prepares the learner for life in a diverse educational and social environment. Children are encouraged to become self-motivated learners and develop qualities of order, concentration and independence.
By engaging a child’s natural curiosity, they develop strong study habits and critical thinking skills.
Develop a Life-Long Love of Learning
The Montessori approach emphasizes independence, freedom within limits and encourages a child’s natural development through curiosity and exploration. Children follow their interests, wherever that passion leads. They develop a life-long love of learning through a balance of freedom and responsibility within the classroom.
Freedom to Learn at Your Pace

Border Star activities include:
- Montessori Model Nations
- Honor Choir
- Chess Club
