Dixon Montessori Charter School is part of an innovative, child-centered teaching movement that has grown for more than one hundred years worldwide. Montessori schools are based upon the educational methodology of Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, who is remembered as one of the most practical, visionary and progressive minds in the history of modern education. In the tradition of Maria Montessori our school offers a pleasant and nurturing environment in which children learn at their own pace pursuing those things that interest them most. In middle school, grades 6th-8th, students progress with the overall philosophy of Maria Montessori in a project based learning environment developing their self motivation and independence. Dixon Montessori provides purposefully designed experiences that lead to our Expected Student Learning Results or M.E.R.I. T.:
Motivated Learners ~ Effective Communicators ~ Respective Citizens ~ Innovative Thinkers ~ Technologically Skilled.
