Soaring Wings International Montessori School
Soaring Wings International Montessori School is a private school for children from prenatal through ninth grade and has been educating students in Park City, Utah since 1987. Montessori is an international educational philosophy that is widely recognized, accepted and embraced around the world. The school provides an exceptional curriculum that exceeds state and national standards. The “education for peace” component originates in Dr. Montessori’s observation that when children learn to celebrate diversity, share limited resources, resolve conflicts peacefully and respect all living and non-living things we can begin to evolve to a more peaceful way of life.
As parents, you have many options when it comes to the education of your children. It is an important decision, and we invite you to consider the many characteristics which distinguish Soaring Wings International Montessori School from other private, public and charter schools, including the following:
Soaring Wings has been under the same ownership and management for 27 years and has graduated hundreds of happy, successful children. Our experience results in a stable, consistent learning environment where parents, teachers and students know what to expect from one year to the next.
Soaring Wings provides a rigorous, comprehensive curriculum that exceeds national standards in mathematics, science, literacy, social studies, practical life, sensorial, penmanship, fine arts, foreign language and healthy lifestyles. Every student learns at her own pace by following a customized curriculum adapted to her specific needs and emerges with a distinct academic advantage (see SAT results).
The Stanford Achievement Test results of our students are phenomenal.
Our comprehensive curriculum and mastery learning approach allow students to reach their highest potential. Consistency and time in class are important factors. Beginning at the Early Childhood level, students attend a minimum of four days per week in order to get the most out of their school experience.
Our peaceful, productive atmosphere is evident the minute you step in the door. Students, teachers and parents work harmoniously together to provide a mutually supportive school community. In order to protect the peace and tranquility of our community, we carefully screen students, teachers and parents. Visitors often remark, “It’s so peaceful and happy here; I want to stay!” We encourage you and your child(ren) to become a part of the Soaring Wings community.
