About the Elementary Program

Our Elementary program consists of a Lower Elementary group (1st through 3rd year students) and an Upper Elementary group (4th through 6th year students). All Elementary students benefit from sharing a large, combined classroom with access to the entire Elementary curriculum.

The Montessori Elementary program offers individualized instruction, which means that the child may work and be helped on an individual basis. Individualized learning establishes more intimate contact among the child, the teacher, and the work. Montessori individualized instruction deals in the concrete. The program permits a variety of approaches, using at every turn dynamic and colorful manipulatives, which materialize abstract principles. These beautiful concrete materials are used throughout the entire curriculum, including math, reading, grammar, writing, spelling, geography, history, natural and general science.
