Upper Elementary Program 2019-06-27T14:17:34-04:00

Upper Elementary is a natural, more independent extension of the younger Montessori environments.

Every morning, there is a three-hour work cycle very similar to that in Children’s House and Lower Elementary.

During this time, students work independently on assignments chosen from their assignment sheets and on independent projects. Individual, small group, and large group lessons are also given in grammar, math, geometry, biology, environmental science, natural history, and political history.

More information to be posted soon…

The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, “The children are working as if I did not exist.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
