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.
