Our Elementary program is designed to be consistent with our Montessori Early Childhood program while meeting or surpassing grade level curriculum standards. Students up to age 14 are stretched to achieve their potential without boundaries such as grading or curriculum restriction or in a non-competitive environment. Each student works at his or her own pace and are encouraged to reach beyond their own level. Elementary students are encouraged to manage their own time, and to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
In addition to the regular classroom, students participate in science, social studies, foreign language, physical education, technology, art and music taught by specialists in their field. Lower Elementary students learn bells and recorder, and Upper Elementary students are given the opportunity to participate in Concert Band and learn an instrument.
Students are encouraged to explore topics they are interested in and apply these topics assigned work, fostering a love of learning and research while also engendering self-discipline and responsibility. Students are given the opportunity to satiate their curiosity while also developing academic skills.
