Montessori’s essential priorities involve creating an environment, which enhances the adolescent’s ability to:
Find one’s place in society
Understand the connection between finding one’s place in society and the nobility of all types of work
Experience and learn the lessons of living in community
Believe in the dignity of humans and that the world is a place of hope and progression of the human spirit.
To fulfill this vision, our school seeks the highest and most complete academic environment for each student and to form a human community that nurtures an atmosphere of caring and sets a thoughtful social climate. We strive to be a community of adults and teenagers who respect each other’s deepest personal and human qualities.
Through the Montessori Philosophy, we have come to have several goals:
Learning –We ask and expect commitment to learning in the broadest sense of the word.
Community – We ask and expect commitment to the fostering and nurturing of relationships that builds community.
Hard Work – We ask and expect commitment to the effort and willingness to meet difficult challenges, both personal and academic.
Respect – We ask and expect commitment to manners that show our respect and caring for others.
Peace – We ask and expect commitment to building a community that values the complex global and personal aspects of peace.
PowerSchool is the computer system used by Cincinnati Public Schools to keep track of student information. It helps parents be an active part of their children's education and keep track of academic progress on a daily basis.
A new feature to PowerSchool is that students can access the system and see what their parents can see.
The system is accessed through a web site, so you can view it from home, work or the local library. There is even a computer in every CPS school designated specifically for parents to use to check PowerSchool. Parents also may use the computer in the Customer Help Center at the district headquarters.
The information about your child is private and password protected. You cannot see other students' records and other parents cannot see your children's records.
