Our goal for our Elementary program is to provide a carefully planned and stimulating environment in which students can develop the skills, habits, attitudes, and ideas necessary for a lifetime of leadership and success. Through the Montessori Method, students are allowed the freedom to learn by doing.
Children in the Elementary program learn to work both independently and in groups. Since they have been encouraged to make decisions from an early age, these students are problem solvers who can make appropriate choices and manage their time well. They exchange ideas and discuss work freely with each other. Their communication skills ease their way into new settings and situations.
