The elementary (or upper level) classroom consists of grades 1-6. The multi-age classroom of students ages 6-12 follows the original model that Dr. Montessori created and lets students learn from each other and be contributing members of a community.
Montessori lessons are presented during the three hour block of work time in the morning. The afternoons are reserved for physical education, music, art, Spanish, French, and projects. Our school day begins at 8:30 with dismissal at 3:15. Pick-up is from 3:20-3:30.
