elementary Program (6-11 years)

In their individualized work the children learn to set goals, manage time, organize projects and use a variety of resources. In addition to using the advanced Montessori materials for math, grammar and science, the students read and discuss children’s classics, and express themselves in art, music, drama, and poetry. Creative writing is a daily activity. A foreign language, physical education and field trips are also included in the curriculum with emphasis on health and wellness, service-learning and nature education.

Montessori elementary programs give students basic learning skills, confidence, self-esteem, an appreciation of other cultures and peaceful techniques for conflict resolution – qualities that will serve them well in any future learning situations.

 

We are very happy with the experiences and learning that our daughter is having at BMFS. It is clear to us that she is gaining early life skills, has a community of supportive friends and teachers around her, and looks forward to her life at school. Our daughter began at BMFS at 20 months, and we were instantly amazed and excited at how quickly she began to explore and attempt new skills- shoe putting on, clothing, letter play, and tasting. It has not stopped and we as parents are confident we made the right choice. We do not hesitate to recommend BMFS.
