Anti-Bias Curriculum

Overhead view of Chiaravalle Montessori in neighborhood

Chiaravalle follows culturally responsive practices in learning environments in order to build a positive relationship between cultural identity and academic success. Chiaravalle faculty developed a Montessori anti-bias curriculum that has been adopted by peer Montessori schools. Our approach means we are not only modeling inclusivity, teaching about race and racism, supporting kids with diverse gender identities and sexualties, we are also delivering our science and history curriculum through a wider-than-Western lens to make sure we represent many cultures and viewpoints.
