At Bowman we offer a unique educational opportunity for elementary aged children, built on the principles of Maria Montessori.
The Bowman program embodies core Montessori beliefs of respect for people and for the environment. We believe that creativity flourishes in an atmosphere of freedom, acceptance and trust. Freedom does not mean doing whatever we want — adults must be firm, fair and consistent in setting limits, in order for children to build such self-discipline.
Middle School Give Back Week, May 18-22
In addition to academic studies, a Bowman education also focuses on developing a sense of responsibility and self-confidence in our students. While we work on this in many ways throughout all our grades, the annual Middle School Give Back Week is a culmination of these efforts. Students can find their own volunteer projects in the community or help in various ways at the school. From visiting residents at retirement centers to reading to young children to caring for a neighbor in need, this week is a highlight for our students and the entire school benefits from the actions and reactions of our Middle Schoolers. Be sure to ask a Middle Schooler about their Give Back Week project and encourage their efforts.
