Twin/Multiple Sibling Policy

We have a twin/multiple sibling policy that twins/siblings will be placed into separate rooms. Our Montessori program is designed for students to remain in the same class for three year cycles. We have found that it is in the best interest of siblings to be in separate rooms for the social development and independent growth of each child.
