Mission Montessori Academy’s Story
Educators have the ability to inspire students to think beyond their school walls, and Mission Montessori Academy has made that their mission.
The K-8 charter school in Scottsdale provides a global education, even sending students to New York City, Chile and China to attend conferences and discuss methods for conserving resources and protecting the environment.
Emboldened by their teachers, a group of seventh-graders have taken a local approach to solving problems and raising awareness of these issues, hoping to change the lives of their community for generations to come.
