Tyee is a Montessori school, committed to providing a rich learning environment for all its students based both on Montessori principles and on fulfilling the expectations of the Ministry of Education for all schools.
There are approximately 192 students registered in Kindergarten through Grade Seven in multi-age groupings. Students take responsibility from an early age, making decisions about how their time is spent on the learning tasks they choose under the teacher's guidance. The Montessori approach supports continuous progress, as children work on personal goals and academic challenges. Students learn to work independently, in small groups, and as members of a class. Parents have made a conscious choice to enroll their children in this program and are highly involved in making the school's program a success.
