ABOUT Orcas Montessori Advocacy for Public Schools (MAPS)
We are a group of concerned parents, educators, and community members who believe in the promise of public school, the power of Montessori education, and the importance of equity for all children.
For children to succeed in the future, they need creativity, imagination, intrinsic motivation, and the ability to collaborate with others. Montessori helps with all of these. It is a more personalized, differentiated approach that allows children to engage in real life problems in a hands-on way.
We ask OISD Superintendent Eric Webb to retain the first- through third-grade Montessori classroom for one more year, during which time parents can partner with the administration and teachers to study what’s best for our children’s future.
The community wants Montessori and alternative learning methods. We stand for more choices for children, and ask you to stand with us.
