LePort Schools
The Montessori learning materials are designed to spark the imagination, engage the intellect, and invite each child to explore, discover, and understand. Our upper elementary and junior high students (aged 9 to 14 years) benefit from a stimulating academic curriculum delivered in small classes with personalized levels of challenge. Our enthusiastic, dedicated teachers work closely with each child to ensure his/her academic potential is reached. Our ability to deliver a superior curriculum and individualized attention in a nurturing environment has earned LePort Schools its reputation as a superior place of learning.
About Leport Schools
LePort Schools is the culmination of Dr. Peter LePort's efforts to provide children with a superior education, one in which they develop strong basic skills, master challenging content, and learn to think independently. From a small home school with three students, LePort Schools has grown to over 250 students at three highly regarded and successful locations in Orange County. Dr. LePort's dedicated team of administrators, teachers, and educational experts have worked together to develop and deliver an exceptional curriculum in a stimulating, nurturing environment, earning LePort Schools its reputation as a superior place of learning.
Philosophy
For children aged 18 months through 8 years, we offer a Montessori approach, which enables students to experience the joy of learning at an early age. Our Montessori classrooms are committed to providing a loving, safe, and secure environment in which the unfolding of your child's potential can be nurtured. Each child's efforts are encouraged and appreciated so that intellectual, moral, creative, physical, and social growth flourishes. Montessori is the approach to education that recognizes and attempts to develop the potential of the young child. This is accomplished by means of a carefully prepared environment, directed by Montessori teachers trained by the Association Montessori International (AMI) using special teaching materials. The Montessori environment provides the opportunities whereby the child may attain inner discipline and self-management. Children develop responsibility for themselves in the context of the community while exploring all areas of learning at their own pace and according to their own interests.
Independence and Discipline

Since the children learn to work independently in the prepared environment, they can enjoy the presence of other children without necessarily working on the same task. The Montessori teacher, therefore, is able to work with each child individually. A wide range of activities is available from which the child can select, thereby developing independence in making decisions. This freedom is established in a structured framework created by the teacher, with limits to provide security for the child and insure progress in all areas of development.
Discipline is established in a firm but loving way, always emphasizing the positive, and by using consistency in reinforcing simple, basic ground rules.
Self-Motivation
Dr. Montessori recognized that the only valid impulse to learning is the self-motivation of the child. Children naturally move themselves toward learning. Adults often intervene, with the best intentions, and place obstacles to learning in the child's path. Dr. Montessori stated that any unnecessary help given to the child hinders his/her growth. The teacher prepares the environment, observes and directs the activity, functions as an authority and protector of the children and the environment, and offers the work according to the readiness and needs of each child. The children become aware, not only of their freedom, but also of the corresponding responsibility to themselves and to others. This is the core of Dr. Montessori's philosophy. The aim of Montessori is to develop the "whole child." Creative, intellectual, physical, and social development are of equal value within the prepared environment.
