We currently offer two sports opportunities for students at Lewis & Clark Montessori Charter School. Ultimate occurs in the fall and spring and includes developmental and competitive divisions for both elementary and middle school students. Additionally, in the fall, 3rd through 8th grade students may join the school’s cross country team.

It is a sport that is grounded in the “Spirit of the Game” which aligns nicely with Montessori.  Players participate and compete using an honor system, respect for others and the principle of fair play. They even referee their own games and resolve conflict within a safe framework.
