Alsion Montessori’s campus houses its private junior high school in Fremont, which features a successful student-centered approach to learning that prepares adolescents for high school and beyond.
Our school is built on the foundation created by Dr. Maria Montessori, the famous Italian educator. She stressed the importance of teaching young people practical skills, often outside the classroom. Following her precepts, Alsion offers a variety of learning opportunities that prepare our students for the challenges of living in the 21st century.
As a private junior high school in Fremont, Alsion promotes independence, self-confidence and responsibility in adolescents using several core practices:
- High educational standards. Our demanding junior high curriculum is varied and interactive. Students are expected to master challenging literary assignments, discovery-based science courses, a variety of mathematics, and a foreign language.
- Small class sizes. With a student/teacher ration of 10 to 1, instructors are able to frequently offer individual instruction. Group projects, which encourage students to work together, are also common in small classes.
- Extracurricular activities. Alsion emphasizes experiential learning through biome trips to destinations such as the Yosemite Valley, as well as participation in model United Nations, clubs, and community projects. The Coffeehouse, a talent show and dinner hosted by faculty and students, gives students a chance to explore their creative side.
- Skilled faculty. Each Alsion Montessori teacher has completed postgraduate studies that aid them in teaching often-distracted junior high students.
An Affordable Private School, Convenient to Silicon Valley
Along with an outstanding curriculum, affordable tuition and a strong sense of family make Alsion Montessori one of the East Bay’s great private educational values. Our dedicated faculty and the Alsion Community Association, a group of parents involved in their children’s education, work together to support students emotionally and academically.
Another benefit of Alsion is location. As a private junior high school in Fremont, centrally located in the East Bay, Alsion’s campus is within an easy drive of Hayward, Pleasanton, Milpitas, Union City, Santa Clara and other communities in Silicon Valley. This makes us a convenient drop off and pick up point for commuters throughout the Valley.
