Montessori Children’s House of Denver Announces The Secondary Academy – an Independent Middle School Affiliate to Open in Denver
DENVER, August 21, 2012 – Montessori Children’s House of Denver (MCHD), an award-winning private preschool and elementary school, announces the launch of The Secondary Academy, an independent middle school affiliated with MCHD. The Secondary Academy will provide middle school students ways to “apply the knowledge” starting this August.
“We saw a need for a middle school where children can be innovative,” said Rachel Averch, cofounder of MCHD and The Secondary Academy. “We are excited to provide a place where students can discover their passions, get out into the community, build strong interpersonal connections, collaborate closely with peers and teachers, and really apply the knowledge they have been building over their formative preschool and elementary years.”
The top-notch educators and founders of MCHD see middle school as a time when children become independent, learn core subjects and begin to feed their passions from within. The Secondary Academy will provide all of those opportunities. It will allow students to participate in real-life internships experiences and teach students hands-on learning skills and the interconnectedness of subjects rather than just memorizing isolated pieces of information to pass tests.
MCHD was established in 1991. MCHD’s approach to learning is to challenge, nurture, inspire and support every child’s individual growth and development in an effective, safe and welcoming learning environment. The school’s Montessori curriculum emphasizes science, art, math, reading, geography, cultural studies and peace education while instilling high self-esteem and respect for oneself, others and the environment.
