Kiva Montessori Charter School Company Information
- United States
Kiva Montessori Charter School is located in Cortez, Colorado, gateway to the Four Corners. The area is a recreational and scenic paradise for those who love to bike, fish, boat, climb, hike, ski, hunt, or run rivers. Surrounded by public lands. It is a mecca for outdoor enjoyment within easy driving distance to the desert, the deep canyons, and 14,000 ft peaks. The region is rich in archeological resources, cultural and biological diversity, and farming and ranching heritage. Kiva Montessori Charter School was founded in 2014 and currently serves 97 children in grades K-8. Our school provides a foundation in Montessori education augmented with community-based projects, expeditionary learning, and STEAM curriculum enrichment. We strive to meet the needs of the whole child (social, emotional, physical, and intellectual) in strong partnership with families and the community. Our multi-age classrooms allow students opportunities to work within a variety of academic levels and subject areas, independently or in small groups, where independence and self-discipline are fostered. Our school offers a non-traditional educational option to families that promotes personal responsibility, self-motivation, high standards, and a global perspective. In its sixth year of operation, Kiva Montessori is entering a new and exciting phase: a beautiful new campus is being developed to accommodate the growing student body; the school has embarked on creating a strategic academic plan to boost student performance and develop a strong culture of staff support and program development, expanding and molding the school�s vision into the future.
