In our Lower Elementary (Grades 1-3) Montessori program, our young students acquire the foundational skills they need for success in school, and in life. In a multi-age setting, your 6 to 9 year old will master reading, writing and arithmetic, exceeding by far even the most ambitious standards set by any public school. Equally important, she will retain her natural excitement for learning: her enthusiasm for knowledge will crescendo rather than wane as she grows. And as with academics, so with organizational and time-management skills: your child will acquire a sense of personal order, and thoroughly enjoy the process of developing these competencies. In our classrooms, students learn to organize their own plans for learning, including managing their workspace, and then follow through and execute on those plans.
