At Tyee we believe in enabling learners to reach for personal excellence in a supportive, stimulating environment following Montessori principles. We encourage and guide all students in taking responsibility for their learning and actively participating in a broad range of learning experiences.
Every year our community raises funds vital to the success of our Montessori program. With your help in our fundraising efforts, we hope to build a new playground, purchase essential Montessori materials, support arts, math, sciences, humanities as well as physical activity. We sponsor performances and help to buy library books. We help to educate the Montessori teachers of the present and future.
Tyee is a Montessori alternative program school, committed to providing a rich learning environment for all its students based both on Montessori principles and on fulfilling the expectations of the Ministry of Education for all schools. There are aproximately two hundred students registered in Kindergarten through Grade Seven in multi-age groupings. Students take responsibility from an early age, making decisions about how their time is spent on the learning tasks they choose under the teacher's guidance. The Montessori approach supports continuous progress, as children work on personal goals and academic challenges. Students learn to work independently, in small groups, and as members of a class. Since Tyee's beginning in the mid-1980's, parents have made a conscious choice to enrol their children in this program and are highly involved in making the school's program a success.
