UPPER ELEMENTARY PROGRAM(9- through 12-year-olds)

At the Upper Elementary Level, children with an excellent Montessori foundation are now ready and able to expand their knowledge in all areas of the curriculum. The study of mathematics, geometry, grammar, reading comprehension, literature, writing, geography, cultural studies, history, science and computer skills comprise an integrated framework for learning and exploration. The program reinforces essential concepts through continued use of concrete materials while transitioning the student to more abstract learning methods. Goals at this level include the development of high self-esteem; effective collaboration with peers; age appropriate social maturation and conflict resolution strategies; consistent and reliable problem solving techniques; strong analytical reasoning skills; and mastery of knowledge through independent learning.
