Upper Elementary

For Ages 9-12

The Upper Elementary students are concerned with the workings of society. To meet these needs, the curriculum for the 9 to 12 year old is based on history, geography, and science – what Dr. Montessori grouped as the cultural subjects. Each student works individually to master language skills and mathematics while studying the cultural areas as a group. This structure facilitates both independent study and group work in a self-paced, cooperative program. During the school week, elementary students have concentrated work periods in art, Spanish, music, and Physical Education.
