The Lewis and Clark Montessori Charter School offers academic programs at four levels, providing children a continuous curriculum of Montessori’s connected concepts.

Beginning at age 2 1/2 with our Primary program and continuing through the Montessori Adolescent Community to age 15, this holistic approach to education prepares your child to be independent, resilient, and confident. This is no different for our highly trained AMI certified teaching staff who as educators, are also lifelong learners.

From the beginning, students are taught how to be responsible members of a diverse community by learning respect and empathy for others.  This, in turn, leads to furthered skills of advocating and caring for oneself.

Our Elementary Program includes two levels of traditional Montessori Elementary classrooms.  Younger Elementary serves 6 to 9-year-olds (Grades 1 – 3), while Older Elementary consists of 9 to 12-year-olds (Grades 4 – 6).  Decision-making, problem-solving and social awareness are key components of the elementary experience. Elementary students are offered key lessons that invite them to explore the world around them from the farthest reaches of the cosmos to the smallest flower. Experiential materials continue to help the child explore the areas of geography, history, math, language, biology, geometry, music and Spanish.

middle-school

The Montessori Adolescent Community (MAC) program is the equivalent of “middle school” in a traditional public school environment. However, our Montessori program is uniquely designed to serve the developmental needs of this “middle school” age. Building upon the work of the Montessori Primary and Elementary levels, the character of the adolescent is actively recognized in a space where the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual environments are designed to support the growth of the emerging adult.
