School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2019—20)
Bella Mente Montessori Academy (BMMA) was established in 2013 and offers a quality Montessori education, led by Montessori trained teachers in Primary and Lower Elementary grades. As students transition to Upper Elementary and Middle School, students experience a Montessori philosophy based education experienced through project based learning.
We provide students with the opportunity to acquire an education based on a quality curriculum founded on the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.
We promote an educational atmosphere that encourages cultural, linguistic and socioeconomic diversity.
We provide an environment where children reach their full potential as independent lifelong learners with the skills, knowledge, and values to be compassionate members of a peaceful world.
We prepare children to care for their bodies through healthy eating and living.
In the 2019-2020 school year, Bella Mente was proud to be recognized as one of America's Healthiest Schools with the Bronze Award from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
This year Bella Mente also became a Leader in Me School using teaching practices to promote social and emotional learning. The practice teaches the 7-Habits of Highly Effective People made famous by Franklin Covey.
Our staff sets high expectations for our students who we describe as “scholars.”
I am a Responsible Scholar because I take ownership and am accountable for my academic and social choices.
I am a Respectful Scholar because I speak and act with care and treat all people and things with kindness.
I am a Safe Scholar because I am considerate and I value myself, my school, and others.
I am a Productive Scholar because I am prepared, organized and focused on reaching my goals.
As a Scholar my education is important to me and I strive to achieve my full potential.
Bella Mente is proud to house The Bella Garden Project (TBGP) in partnership with The Sage Garden Project. The mission of TBGP is to generate a learning experience empowering a student’s effective global environmental awareness and education through the support of a full project based curriculum. Utilizing
quality Montessori philosophies, we strive to foster forward thinking students prepared with 21st Century skills while enriching and nurturing the whole child. In either our garden classroom or with the mobile nutrition cart granted to us from the Sage Garden Project (SGP), we strive to teach the students at
Bella Mente Montessori Academy (BMMA) an education that teaches life skills beyond the walls of our campus. Whether a student becomes a future farmer, turns towards a career in agriculture, becomes a scientist, the next Top Chef or most importantly a productive member of our society, here at The Bella Garden
Project (TBGP) we believe in giving an ultimate well rounded learning experience coupled by curriculum from a multitude of resources. TBGP and BMMA educates our students with an innovative curriculum for all the grades from K-8 with a direct link between garden and nutrition, environment and science, health wellness
and social skills.
