Tomah Area Montessori School (TAMS) is a free, public charter school within the Tomah Area School District (TASD) providing a Montessori education for students ages 4K - *6th Grade.
*In the 2022-2023 School Year, E2 will grow to accept 6th Graders.
WHY CHOOSE TAMS FOR MY CHILD?
The Montessori Method refers to a child-centered philosophy of education developed by the Italian anthropologist and physician, Dr. Maria Montessori. It is not affiliated with any religious or political organization. Tomah Area Montessori School (TAMS) provides an authentic Montessori education based on Dr. Montessori’s principles and the standards set forth by the American Montessori Society. Encouraging a child’s innate desire to learn, providing a prepared child-friendly learning environment, and supporting children’s need to work at their own pace remain the foundation of the program. Our classrooms consist of mixed-age groupings where students learn under the guidance of Montessori-credentialed teachers. Learning is emphasized through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. TAMS is dedicated to the emotional, academic, spiritual, social, and physical development of the child.
