Montessori At #78 is located at 345 Olympic Avenue Buffalo, NY. This public school is situated in the Buffalo City School District and provides education opportunities for students in grades PK through 6 for residents of Buffalo New York, in Erie County. Students attend classes in a multi-aged setting and educational methods for children are based on theories of child development originated by Italian educator Maria Montessori in the late 19th and early 20th century. It is applied primarily in preschool and elementary school settings, though some Montessori high schools exist.
The method is characterized by an emphasis on self-directed activity on the part of the child and clinical observation on the part of the teacher (often called a "director", "directress", or "guide"). It stresses the importance of adapting the child's learning environment to his or her developmental level, and of the role of physical activity in absorbing academic concepts and practical skills.
