Spruce Tree Montessori School is the first private Montessori elementary school in Fairbanks, Alaska. Spruce Tree provides an inspiring learning environment using proven Montessori techniques, approved Montessori materials and its elementary classroom is guided by an experienced, credentialed Montessori teacher.
Our curriculum provides sound academic background for the establishment of critical thinking, problem solving and cooperative learning skills with enrichment programming in music and foreign language. Our goal is to support the development of each child in all areas – academically, socially, physically, and emotionally in an effort to educate the “whole child.”
Montessori represents an entirely different approach to education. Having another elementary option in our community will expand school choice for families and add vitality to the educational community.
“Spruce Tree is our first Montessori experience. We’ve seen our son develop ownership in the learning process. His ideas are valued and his interests are nurtured. His confidence, self-sufficiency and enthusiasm grow daily. Thank you, Spruce Tree Montessori!”
-Aelin Allegood, mother of 1st grade student
