Annual General Assembly of the College Maria Montessori des Aiglons (Cruseilles – Haute-Savoie)


The Maria Montessori des Aiglons College, located in Cruseilles in Haute-Savoie since 2014, is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year!

It has been constituted in 2016 as a cooperative society, of which the employees of the college, but also the parents and several Montessori schools in the region are members, not to mention the supporters of the project, former or more recent.

An original governance that aims to bring together the various stakeholders around the educational project, who together contribute to the educational development of the 35 or so young people who are welcomed each year in boarding schools, from 5th to 3rd grade (12-15 years old).

This General Assembly, the first after the financial difficulties of the previous year, will be an opportunity to discuss with the college’s management team (Sylvie Coffre, Olivia Gollain and Julien Lamorte) the year that is ending and the prospects, particularly with regard to the future of the Les Aiglons site and possibly the opening of a future Montessori school.

Julien Lamorte

After 15 years of commitment into Montessori education and community in France and Switzerland, I have become a Montessori trainer for Administrators at Association Montessori Internationale. Still working at the middle school we founded in 2014 "College Maria Montessori des Aiglons" in Cruseilles, France, I try to contribute to a few projects serving more and better Montessori education all around the world. Montessori Action is one of these projects. I hope this platform will help many people to know more and many children to benefit from this wonder Maria Montessori brought to us as her legacy. In this blog I will share with you some of the experiences I have been lucky enough to take part in, as well as some of my personal thoughts about school leadership. As this would be considered from the Administrator's perspective, I have decided to call it "Director's cut". Hope you will enjoy!
