The Roberts Academy (originally called Montessori International School of the Plains) originated as a certified Montessori school that would give those who had completed Montessori at the elementary level the opportunity to continue through middle and senior high school with the same Montessori teaching methods. As the school evolved, more and more students who were categorized as having “learning disabilities” enrolled and found the school to be a perfect fit.
The Roberts Academy does not accept that ADD and ADHD are “learning disabilities” but are instead learning abilities. That these students learn differently is a problem only when a school is not equipped to teach differently. Since each public school class has on average one or two such students, the teachers are not often able to alter their teaching methods and teach separately to these students. At The Roberts Academy our classes are focused on teaching differently to those learning differently.
The Roberts Academy can free kids from the frustration they have felt in their large school and help them find their direction and help them discover how they learn best.
In short teaching with the Montessori method emphasizes learning through all five senses, allows students to learn at their own pace, allows students to succeed in reaching their potential and allows students to work at their studies until they have achieved 85 per cent mastery before moving on to the next level.
At The Roberts Academy we understand that all children do not learn alike. The public schools are not equipped to work with students who need freedom to move about the classroom, who need to interact in learning rather than listen to a lecture, or need more attention in one area or another.
For the past seven years we have been helping students succeed in school. We have been able to help each student identify how he/she learns best, we work with students’ individual differences and create a happy, successful school experience for students
From Personal World to Communication Arts to Mathematics and everything in between, we employ a well-rounded education that serves as college prep for your child.
