Elementary 2


"The object of education is an entity in the process of becoming a human being. Education should not focus on special functions, faculties, or skills, but on the whole personality."

-Dr. Maria Montessori

The Elementary II Program serves students ages nine to twelve years-old in 4th, 5th, & 6th grades. 

The Montessori elementary classrooms include:

  • a diverse set of Montessori advanced materials, activities, and experiences, which are designed to foster physical, intellectual, creative, and social independence;
  • a schedule that allows large blocks of uninterrupted time to problem solve, to see the interdisciplinary connections of knowledge, and to create new ideas;
  • a classroom atmosphere that encourages social interaction for cooperative learning, peer teaching and emotional development.

In the Montessori classroom, the students learn to respect themselves, others, and their environment.  They also learn self-motivation, which is the key to the child's learning for the rest of his/her life.
