Since our Montessori classrooms work with individualized instruction, our students are immersed in a mixed aged environment. The lessons are given according to individual capabilities, since we don’t impede the potential of the child because of their grade level. This guarantees that children are always being challenged, regardless of their age. With this, children who are gifted in certain areas excel in our programs. This is also true for children who need extra support, since they will receive the level of instruction that they need to be able to create a solid academic base.
During the Montessori work cycle, lessons happen in small groups of children who are ready for a particular level of academic challenge. Elementary students will receive lessons in Mathematics, Language, Natural Science, History and Geography. After a lesson, each student can work with the material or on project extensions to further his/her exploration into a particular subject. Investigations and published papers on academic topics is something that is constantly happening in our classrooms. Students have access to an array of physical and digital resources to further expand their knowledge of a subject.
