Support Montessori Communities in Puerto Rico

Instituto Nueva Escuela (INE) aims to contribute to strengthening and transforming public education in Puerto Rico by training teachers and assistants in Montessori philosophy. Currently, INE is the only existing and accredited institution that offers training and coaching in Montessori philosophy and methodology in Puerto Rico.

By training teachers and assistants, INE promotes the public education and social transformation of the communities surrounding the schools.  Citizens become part of a social movement that promotes excellence in education for parents and students.  

The year 2019 started with the governor signing the Law 277, which let to the historic creation of SAEM historic creation of SAEM (Auxiliary Secretariat of Montessori Education by its Spanish Acronym) in the Department of Education in Puerto Rico.  This is the first place in the world to pass a law that makes Montessori education accessible for all students in the country.  Our visibility has helped to reach out to other organizations and receive volunteer work in schools’ communities.

The economic recovery process of Puerto Rico will continue to challenge our mission. That is why we would like to secure the positions of our 194 teachers assistants.  Many of our assistants are school’s community members, single women and heads of family. The community around our school is highly involved in every process. The assistants recruited are mostly from communities nearby. Instituto Nueva Escuela (INE) is responsible for maintaining these jobs and keeping up their training process. The assistants get trained to implement changes in the traditional curriculum areas in Math and Language.

We made it through 2018, but we can't lower the guard as the long-term repercussions on the government and the ecnomy of Puerto Rico will continue affecting us and theatening our mission.
