Our Mission is to help struggling students build the foundational skills and confidence they need to become successful in school and in life.Our students come to us with significant learning challenges due to learning disabilities and/or social emotional challenges that have made learning in a more traditional setting frustrating or unsuccessful.
Our program is tailored to address the unique needs of each of our students. Through specific assessments and evaluations, ongoing monitoring, specialized cognitive training, intensive educational and therapeutic interventions, family support, and positive reinforcement, the experience and services at Banyan Tree will be life-changing, for students and their families.
The philosophy upon which Apple Montessori School is based embraces the most fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our method is designed to constantly build upon the individual skills and knowledge the child is acquiring, at every age level. By offering multi-aged classrooms rich with Montessori materials, your child will be actively engaged in their own learning process.
He or she can move through new challenging materials quickly, or on to another experience without the boredom of waiting for others to catch up. He or she can repeat these same activities until mastery is achieved. This can be done without frustration of being pushed ahead before one is ready. His or her own feelings of accomplishment act as a reinforcement to succeed.

Student workshops typically begin with an introduction to the essentials of Japanese taiko drumming through active hands-on participation on taiko drums. Students will learn about taiko history and context, full-body warm up, proper stance, grip, taiko vocabulary, and a practice piece that combines these skills.
Team building workshops are for students and teachers, too! Through active individual participation and the fundamentals of teamwork, the consolidated learning gained during the event is applied to allow your teams to perform a dynamic Japanese Taiko drumming piece. Individuals and teams will end the workshop with a sense of personal accomplishment and the realization of what can be completed as a team.
We also allow groups to construct their own taiko drum at our six-week taiko building workshop. We order used wine barrels and turn them into magnificent musical instruments. Wear work clothes and be prepared to get messy with wood glue, wood stain, varnish and sawdust.
