Arizona State Standards/Structured Montessori Education philosophy is that all children are motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge. Curriculum is explored in small learning groups. The educational experience includes tactile (hands on) learning materials to  encourage the student to learn through multiple senses. Weekly Saxon assessments, AIMS and ongoing observation chart the students’ growth.
