So what makes a Far Horizon’s education different from other private or public schools?
The answer; we treat each of our students as the unique individuals they are, and we educate them with Montessori materials, using the Montessori method.
Maria Montessori believed that within each child there is potential for greatness. When ignited by a child’s natural curiosity, this spark bursts into a burning desire to learn about themselves and the world around them and to fulfill their unique potential.
Far Horizons teachers are truly Montessori trained.
Our teachers are trained to nurture a student’s natural curiosity through the Montessori Method of Education.
The owner/director of Far Horizons, Nora Cunningham, was born and educated in Ireland. She graduated from Dublin University and Sion Hill Montessori College, which has produced many of the top leaders in the Montessori world.
Nora migrated to the United States where she opened Far Horizons Montessori School in Orange, California in 1978. Nora is aware of the importance of a good education. It has always been her passion in life to provide a private Montessori education for as many children as possible, and because of this she has chosen to keep the tuition at Far Horizons as affordable as possible to reach out to families who may not be able to afford other Orange County private schools.
