“We look forward to our first day of school. We aim to meet the big demand for more schools in the area South of the freeway and North of the rivers by providing quality education to children in our neighborhoods,” says Waterfront Academy co-founder David Epstein.
“Opening this school started as a vision of the ideal school for my own children. I believe in Montessori education and want that in the truest sense for my own children,” says Waterfront Academy co-founder Melissa Rohan. “Dr. Montessori intended religion to be a part of educating children. This is something that was abandoned in the 1960’s. We are incorporating Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, faith taught in the Montessori method, into our curriculum as we share Dr. Montessori’s vision.”
Mrs. Rohan also stated, “as a Latina, I want my children to be bilingual, especially as the demographics of our nation change. Additionally as the global market becomes more accessible, it becomes apparent that today’s children will need to know multiple languages to be competitive. The positive feedback on the school and its mission validates my vision – it is clearly shared in the communities.”
