Message from the Principal

  • Dear Parents, Students, and Website Guests,

    It is my pleasure to welcome each of you to our Montessori Academy, School No. 53 web page! I hope you find it a valuable “cyber-representation” of our school community. The staff shares my sentiments and joins me in saying how pleased and excited we are to have you take time to visit and learn more about the Montessori Academy, School 53 family.

    Our vision and mission is to provide students with a safe and secure learning environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and academic well-being of the whole child. We at Montessori “Believe in the Child” and work collaboratively with parents and all stakeholders to provide the best education for all of our children.

    Montessori Academy applies the methodology and application of Montessori; while implementing the Common Core Learning Standards. Our goal is to prepare students to be college and career bound, as well as productive citizens in the community in which they live.

    Please enjoy our website and I look forward to seeing you on campus in the near future.


    Dr. Kimberly Harris-Pappin, Principal
