Private School for Toddler through Middle School

Code of Ethics

As recognized members of the Association Montessori Internationale, we have a commitment to maintain exceptional standards. We must conduct ourselves at all times, both professionally and personally, to reflect our respect for each other and for the children and families we serve. To that end, we have adopted the following Code of Ethics:

Our Commitment to the Students:

  • Encourage independent action in the pursuit of learning.
  • Protect the opportunity to provide for participation in educational programs without regard to race, sex, color, creed or national origin. Protect the health and safety of students.
  • Honor professional commitments; maintain obligations and contracts, while never soliciting, or involving students or their parents in schemes for commercial gain.
  • Keep confidential all information secured in the course of professional service, unless disclosure serves professional purposes or is required by law.

Our Commitment to the Public:

  • Support our professional societies and accurately represent their policies in public discussions. When speaking or writing about policies, we will be careful to distinguish our private views from the official position of the organization.

Not interfere with, or exploit the right and responsibilities of colleagues within the teaching profession.

Our Commitment to the Profession:

  • Demonstrate just and equitable treatment to all members of the Montessori education profession.
  • Represent our own professional qualifications with clarity and true intent.
  • Apply for, accept, offer, recommend, and assign professional positions and responsibilities on the basis of professional preparation and legal qualification.
  • Use honest and effective methods of administering our duties, use of time and conduct in business.
