It is the child who makes the man, and no man exists who was not made by the child he once was.

The Uniqueness of Kenmont
Kenmont Montessori School develops life long learners. Our students are independent and self-regulated learners. The teacher serves as a resource, guide and helper. We understand knowledge is not entirely fixed but rather something all individuals, students and adults alike, actively construct through personal and social experiences. Our students learn “how to learn.”
Our school and classrooms are mirrors of a larger society. At Kenmont, students learn about people different from themselves and about equity and fairness in their classrooms at a young age. These are the lessons that stay with them into adulthood.
We are proud to say we are the only independent school in Brownsville that has incorporated the “MicroSociety” program as part of our curriculum. By reconstructing a world inside a school building, students learn how the world works. “Kenmontville” is a thriving city inside the walls of Kenmont. By partnering with local businesses, Kenmontville has a student government, bank, utility department, store, restaurant, post office, newspaper, teachers, advertising agency, recycling center, art, production and manufacturing company, parks and recreation, and farm.
