The Bella Mente Mission

The mission of Bella Mente Montessori Academy Charter School is to provide students with the opportunity to acquire an education based on an “authentic” curriculum founded on the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.

We intend to promote an educational atmosphere that encourages socioeconomic diversity by providing all students with the opportunity to obtain a quality public education.

Our aim is to prepare each of our students with the skills, knowledge, and values to participate meaningfully in the pluralistic world of the 21st century.

A free public Montessori charter school serving San Diego County.

What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like afterwards. The ShakeOut drill will occur in houses, businesses, and public spaces alike throughout California at 10:16 a.m. on October 16, 2014. The purpose of the ShakeOut is to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes, and to get prepared at work, school, and home. Everyone can participate!
