NEW! Northstar Aquatics Private Swim Lessons!

Junior High


Mr. Scott CummingsMr. Scott Cummings - Director

Hello, my name is Scott Cummings. I am currently in my 10th year as a teacher and my 5th here at Northstar Montessori. I am invested in the world of education as it has been my life as a child and as an adult, both as a student and educator. I currently hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of California Santa Cruz and a Masters of Education from Canisus University in Buffalo. I am also certified with the Ontario College of Teachers. Originally from California, I have called Mississauga my home for the last 7 years. I have found the area to be a great place to live and raise my son and daughter, plus Northstar has given me a fantastic environment to work and teach. Northstar, provided me the opportunity to educate children in the vast world of art, providing new experiences to some budding artist. Last year I was presented a new opportunity teaching Junior High, as well as continuing with art. With a year of Junior High Education under my belt, and the many amazing experiences the students and I have been a part of, makes this school, this community an ideal place to grow with. I look forward to continued growth and opportunities that arise while teaching the students of Northstar; helping to make this school a safe, fun and comfortable place to learn in for your child.

What Other People Said...

"My daughter has been at Northstar since she was 2 years old and started in the Toddler Program. She is now in the final year of the Casa Program and my son has taken her place in the Toddler Room. I can’t say enough about how Northstar has gone above and beyond to ensure their success. The school takes an individual approach to each student, recognizing that each child learns in their own way and at their own pace. My daughter has excelled in this non competitive environment and is outperforming her circle of peers who are older than her in the public system. She has a love for learning and truly enjoys working with the Montessori materials. The Casa Program does a great job of ensuring that the students really understand what they are learning. The Toddler and Pre Casa Programs are both nurturing and educational and truly set the stage for learning at the higher levels. My son at just a year and a half has shown great independence as well as the ability to follow direction and play well in a group setting. The school has done a great job of balancing both the social and academic needs of the child which in my opinion is key to their success." - Shelley
