Bereton Montessori opened on the 10th of September, 1978 as a pioneer private nursery school in Rivers State with 120 children in eight classrooms. The school has since grown to contain the Early Years, Primary, and Secondary Schools. The Early Years School is situated at Plot 270 Liberation Stadium Road, GRA Phase IV, Rumu Omasi, Port Harcourt, with children from 3 to 5 years old present on site. The Junior School is for children aged between the ages of 7 – 11. The Senior School is for children aged between the ages of 11 – 18. Both Junior and Senior Schools are housed in a modern building situated in 8 Ernest Ikoli Street, Old GRA, Port Harcourt.
Bereton Montessori has an approach to Pupils/Students directed by the highest Christian ideals which include love and respect for one’s fellow man, service to the whole community, friendship, understanding, and fair-mindedness to all. The school aims to produce the Total Child – children that are morally, socially, spiritually, and academically sound, using state-of-the-art facilities.
Bereton Montessori has a unique academic method structured to be effective, dynamic, practical, intensive and goal-oriented. The students are divided into small well-lit and air-conditioned classes to enable individual attention and effective teaching and monitoring of the pupils/students. A blend of the Nigerian and British curriculum is delivered using intensive teaching methods.
The school is well staffed with competent, experienced and professionally qualified teaching and non-teaching staff. Members of the staff are carefully selected to complement modern teaching methods and facilities. They are trained and constantly retrained in order to maintain the school’s reputed standard.
The school’s academic methods prepare the students for both national and international examinations. These include NECO, JSCE, IGCSE, and Cambridge Checkpoint.
