School District No. 57 (Prince George) offers K-7 Montessori programs at Polaris Montessori Elementary School and a Gr. 8-9 program at Prince George Secondary School.
Montessori programs, based on the work done by Maria Montessori, emphasize learning through self-discovery, working in multi-aged groups, following a curriculum rich in hands on materials, and the development of the intrinsic motivation of the learner.
Both programs are supported by the Prince George Montessori Education Society, www.pgmontessori.ca a non-profit society which promotes Montessori preschool and school aged programs for Prince George.
