is true, we cannot make a genius, we can only give each individual
the chance to fulfill his potential possibilities to become an independent,
secure and balanced human being." -- Dr. Maria Montessori
||Joanne and Joe Alex started Stillwater Montessori School in August 1983. The School has both a Primary program (3- 6 yrs) and an Elementary program (6 to 11 yrs). Both programs are located in a large Victorian house with attached barn that has been renovated into classroom space, office space and a multi-purpose room. Stillwater Montessori School is nine miles north of Bangor, ME and located off exit 193 at 1024 Stillwater Avenue in Old Town, ME. Stillwater Montessori School is also located 1 mile from the University of Maine in Orono. Special instructional programs include Spanish, Music, violin, Art and Dance. After school programs include an Environmental Club and Chess Club.
Stillwater Montessori School has students from many different nationalities and religious backgrounds because of the nearby University of Maine and its international community. Because of this, cultural studies and celebrations are an important aspect of the curriculum.
Stillwater Montessori School has a strong environmental curriculum and philosophy and actively participates in Project Learning Tree, Project Wild, Adopt a Forester program, Wild School sites, Penobscot Riverkeepers and Project Wild Aquatic.
