Kenai Montessori School Inc.

What sets Kenai Montessori apart? How are we different from the other schools? The answer is both simple and profound: KMS is a values-driven school. We're not driven by status, or statutes, or educational tradition. We serve each student's gifts and challenges, support parents, and nurture the "whole child" -- socially and emotionally, as well as academically. Every practice at KMS is in the service of providing our students with the tools they need to become independent lifelong learners, ethically and environmentally aware.

Mission Statement

Kenai Montessori School Inc. is a vibrant community of educators and families, agreeing with Dr. Maria Montessori that each generation of children has the opportunity to remake the world it inherits.

We cultivate and honor children's innate love of learning as they prepare for a life of purpose, integrity, and academic accomplishment. Kenai Montessori students gain the skills and confidence to meet the challenges of self, family, community, and the world at large.

Our Community

Our community is the foundation of our school's life. We celebrate the diversity in our families and staff, and we welcome parent participation, because we know that our success depends on all our community members' involvement. We believe schools should be a laboratory for learning for all members of the community, students and adults alike. Classroom and school events provide many opportunities for supporting the classrooms, learning together, making connections, and having fun.
