Elementary (age 6-12)
The Elementary program gives children the chance to explore and understand the universe. The work begins with Great Lessons that span the history of the universe from the origin of the solar system, to the formation of the earth and the rise of civilizations.
Aided by impressionistic charts and timelines, the child explores all aspects of the world around them and is encouraged to follow their curiosity. Montessori materials aid the child’s understanding of mathematics, language, geography, and biology. The Elementary classroom supports the child’s development through Grace and Courtesy lessons, frequent meetings with the teacher, and a strong sense of community.
In Elementary, children learn to work together and to take charge of their learning as they navigate their own educational journeys and follow their passions.
