Our Lower Elementary Program serves our children in first, second and third grades (ages 6-9), while the Upper Elementary Program serves children in fourth, fifth and sixth grades (ages 9-12).

The Elementary program is uniquely designed to build on the Montessori foundation established in the Primary Program, while continuing a commitment to whole child development. The curriculum provides a continuum of both philosophy and materials from toddlerhood to adolescence. The Elementary Program incorporates extended work periods, in-depth studies, supplementary instruction for special subjects and a wide variety of field trips and collaborative projects. The Elementary After School Program is offered for Elementary children from 2:45PM-5:00PM in an effort to better serve the needs of our families.
