Ensuring a high quality educational experience and skills relevant to the 21st century
The Lakeview Montessori School may be relatively new to the
Sparta area but its curriculum is over a century old. It
was in 1906 that Maria Montessori, an Italian pediatrician turned
educator, developed her methods based on what she saw in children
in her practice.
Since then thousands of Montessori schools across the world,
including 500 in the United States and 56 in Wisconsin, have
embraced her concepts.
Lakeview Montessori School was founded in 2004 and we serve
children from preschool through sixth grade.

• Helping each child reach his or her full potential in all
areas of life: social skills, emotional growth, physical
coordination and academic skills. This holistic curriculum
allows the child to experience the joy of learning, time to enjoy
the process and to develop self-esteem.
• Creating a safe and positive environment supportive to
the child with self-directed learning and student-teacher
relationships built on trust and respect to foster self-confidence
and a willingness to try new things.
• Montessori materials that are the focus of learning and
expand the child's attention span because the teacher does not
continually interrupt him or her. These specially designed
materials stimulate the senses, encourage learning in a sequence
and are self-correcting to facilitate learning.
• Montessori teachers, who encourage learning by designing
the environment and serving as a resource person, a role model, a
demonstrator, observer and facilitator of student learning.
The school is designed to narrow the achievement gap due to
socio-economic barriers. It also will improve students'
reading and language arts skills and meet their individual social,
emotional and educational needs.
