MIAMI, FL — Endeavor Schools is proud to announce the opening of its first high school, Montessori Academy at Sharon Spring’s High School, and the school’s candidacy for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. Still offering pre-primary through middle school, Montessori Academy at Sharon Springs will be Endeavor Schools’ first school to offer a high school education for students in grades 9 through 12.

“As an organization that is passionate about unleashing individual potential and seeing our students thrive, we are excited about this opportunity to expand our exceptional education to adolescents and young adults in the Cumming community,” said Ricardo Campo, President of Endeavor Schools. “We look forward to guiding our students to achieve new heights as we help prepare them for life after graduation.”

The high school program will provide opportunities for adolescents to be challenged academically, gain self-confidence and self-knowledge, learn to be adaptable, belong to a community, and create a vision for their personal future. Designed to empower adolescents, the high school curriculum is an integration of the current research in human development and the Montessori philosophy. Director of Montessori Academy at Sharon Springs Debbie Bradford and Adolescent Program Lead Guide Rus George both played key leadership roles in getting the high school on its feet.

“We are so proud of Montessori Academy at Sharon Springs for being accepted as a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, and would like to extend a special thanks to Carmen Serghi, the IB Coordinator, who worked tirelessly to ensure that this goal became a reality,” said Danielle Millman, Executive Vice President of Endeavor Schools. “This news couldn’t have come at a better time, with the onset of our first ever high school. We’re eager to see how this program will develop our students socially, emotionally, and cognitively.”

Montessori at Sharon Springs is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students.

Endeavor Incorporates Step by Step Montessori Schools in Minnesota

MIAMI, FL — Endeavor Schools recently added Step By Step Montessori Schools in Minneapolis, Minnesota to its existing impressive network of Montessori schools across the country.  Step By Step Montessori is a private school with eight locations throughout the western suburbs of Minneapolis, and has been offering exemplary programs for children aged 6 weeks to 8 years old throughout the greater Minneapolis area since 1991.

Endeavor Schools is looking forward to continuing the longstanding and fruitful tradition of excellence at Step by Step Montessori. “We’re thrilled to have Step By Step’s eight fantastic schools as part of our Endeavor family,” said Ricardo Campo, President of Endeavor Schools. “For over 25 years, this Montessori school family has been serving the youth of Minneapolis with a remarkable education program.”

Endeavor Schools partners with well-founded educational establishments like Step By Step to encourage and empower educators to operate the best possible schools in the country. By providing them with tools, leadership, guidance and support, Endeavor Schools creates a positive experience for each of their schools, in order to make a lasting impact on communities.

The integration of Step By Step Montessori into Endeavor’s growing family has been a seamless process. “Throughout the transition, I knew that Step by Step could partner well with Endeavor Schools,” said Mike Minor, Executive Vice President of the Midwest Region. “I gladly took the opportunity to stay on board, and have really come to enjoy my partnership with Endeavor. Working with everyone on the Endeavor team has been a true pleasure, and I’m looking forward to many years of serving the Minneapolis community as part of the Endeavor family.”

Home to infant, toddler and primary classrooms, Step By Step Montessori Schools offer a variety of programs, both full-time and part-time, including before and after school care. The carefully planned environment in each classroom includes the use of Montessori materials that allow children to explore practical life, sensory perception, reading and writing abilities, mathematical skills, geographical areas, and elements of botany and zoology. In order to provide a well-rounded curriculum and develop the whole child, Step by Step offers enrichment programs in music, foreign language, swimming, technology and dance.

Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and with Montessori certified teachers on staff, Step By Step offers a challenging Montessori curriculum meant to stimulate a child’s growth and progress.  Unlike traditional school methods which focus on teaching a standard curriculum to all children in a teacher-led environment, Step By Step’s Montessori Method encourages creative thinking and problem solving while building high self-confidence and self-esteem. This unique curriculum and learning philosophy aligns perfectly with Endeavor’s vision to transform the lives of those they serve.

“I look forward to continuing the great work started at Step By Step, growing our presence in the Twin Cities market and beyond, and continuing to run the highest possible quality Montessori programs available,” said Minor, who started his journey in Montessori at the age of three when his mother, Rose Minor, took a job at one of the schools to be able to afford the tuition for her son. Mrs. Rose Minor acquired Step by Step in 1991 when it was only a cluster of four schools and over the years added four more locations. Mrs. Minor remains busy at work to this day but will soon be retiring after wholeheartedly serving the Montessori community for 45 years.

“I look forward to continuing to work with our great group of teaching professionals as well as developing that next generation of teachers,” Mike said. “And finally continuing to come to work every day and see those smiling happy faces of the children in our centers. They are truly the most rewarding part of what we do.”

Endeavor Schools Celebrates Big Finish to the Year with Three Acquisitions

MIAMI, FL — Endeavor Schools, a Miami-based leader in education management, wrapped up 2016 with three impressive acquisitions, marking another successful year for the company. Endeavor Schools established its presence on the West Coast by acquiring The Children’s Garden in Portland, Oregon; and expanded its presence in Texas with the addition of Parker-Chase Preschool and Silverline Montessori, both established school networks with locations in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex and Greater Houston area respectively.

“We are thrilled to announce that The Children’s Garden, Parker-Chase Preschool and Silverline Montessori School have joined the Endeavor Schools family,” said Ricardo Campo, President of Endeavor Schools. “With these acquisitions, we are not only extending our reach into the West but also strengthening our existing presence in Texas. Each offers exceptional educational programs with the key elements we seek in our prospective partner schools. We are excited to empower them with the tools, resources, and support they need to best meet the needs of the communities they serve.”

The Children’s Garden, located in the heart of downtown Portland, is Endeavor’s first private school acquisition in Oregon. Founded over 25 years ago, the school offers high-quality, personalized care for children from six weeks of age through kindergarten. Students thrive in a stimulating and enriching learning environment featuring a proprietary research-based curriculum centered on mindfulness.

Founded in 1981, Parker-Chase Preschool offers two locations in the Dallas suburbs of Carrollton and Plano which serve children from infancy through pre-kindergarten. Parker-Chase was one of the first schools to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) after being a part of its pilot credentialing program in 1985. The school has been re-accredited with this prestigious “gold standard of approval” ever since.

Silverline Montessori School, founded in 1994, is focused on developing the emotional, social, and educational growth of their students throughout two campuses in the suburbs of Houston. Serving children from infancy through elementary school, Silverline Montessori is recognized by both the American Montessori Society and the National Independent Private School Association.

“These are exciting times to be a part of Endeavor Schools,” Campo said. “We are experiencing tremendous growth, and our team is excited to execute our vision to create optimal teaching and learning environments that transform the lives of those we serve.”
