Our Elementary Program includes two levels of traditional Montessori Elementary classrooms. Lower Elementary serves 6 to 9-year-olds (Grades 1 – 3), while Upper 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. During these years, children are characterized by a reasoning mind, a thirst for knowledge, a sense of wonder, an attraction to peers and growth toward intellectual independence. 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.
