Learning Environment

Shasta Union Elementary School offers a student-centered education based on the philosophy and methods of Maria Montessori.  Each student is supported and challenged to discover their strengths, to be independent thinkers, life-long learners, and contributing members of the community.

By respecting the individuality of the child and allowing freedom of choice, we allow the natural creativity and curiosity of the child to thrive.  When allowed to take the initiative in their learning, the child develops self-motivation and the ability to learn with independence.  This in turn nurtures a love of learning that enhances the student's self-esteem allowing them to discover about the world around them.  In collaboration with others, a true awareness of ones place in a community is established.  This empowers Montessori students to become active citizens in a global community, promoting peaceful collaboration among diverse nations.
