A positive learning environment where personal success is an achievable objective every student, family, and staff member believes and actively pursues.
We believe in our students. Gulfport Elementary School 's mission is to guide and empower our students while we all learn and develop in our global community.
The Montessori Method
Dr. Montessori developed her method because she was troubled by the rigid teaching techniques used in Europe at the time, which blocked many children in their learning efforts. Feeling that the young child had more potential for self-learning than traditional teaching methods allowed, she began to develop this potential through a sensorial approach which carries through to the abstractions later (this teaches the young child through his natural interest in exploring the world through his senses). The Montessori method emphasizes the prepared environment (designed especially for the child), by utilizing specially trained teachers and uniquely designed learning materials and apparatus having a special appeal to the child.
