Drachman K-6 Magnet School Principal

Dear Drachman Parents, Students and Community Members,

We are responsible and peaceful! These beautiful words are at the core of our operations for our beautiful children. During this school year, I also want to see Drachman expand its connections with you. Parents and guardians are the primary educators of children, and we plan to increase the quantity and quality of our school-to-home communication so that we can learn from your experiences with our students.

The Montessori philosophy promoted at Drachman recognizes the impact of critical learning periods in childhood in relation to the development of social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and moral capabilities. The professionals at Drachman respect the uniqueness of each person and nurture the innate capacity of every person to fulfill their potential as contributing citizens of the world. Children at Drachman experience a distinguished form of public schooling that is unique in our current educational era of high-stakes testing. Our youth are trusted, supported and allowed to become readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, artists and advocates for individual health and interpersonal peace. Thank you for being such an important part of our Montessori community.

With Sincere Peace,

Jesús Celaya, Ph.D.

for thoughts to live correct.
Our minds define

With pride within our eyes
Flyin' high our roars soar!!!
