We offer Lower Elementary (grades 1 – 3) and Upper Elementary (grades 4 – 6) programs that follow and exceed state standards implementing Montessori educational principles. Students work in the areas of Montessori in both Spanish and English. Our students have individualized work plans to allow them to use time effectively and to make appropriate choices. Students conduct research within the content of the curriculum. Areas of study include: Language Arts, Mathematics, Geometry, Physical Science, Biological Science, Geography, History, Fine Arts, and Physical Education.
The Montessori Language Arts curriculum is designed to enhance the students’ skills in reading fluency, reading comprehension, writing, grammar, communication skills through presentations, and provide connections with literature, history, math, geography, and science.
Students work with nomenclature, pictures and word labels, read books, research and present projects in both Spanish and English.
Reading: Students increase reading and comprehension skills through various reading activities. Students practice reading silently and aloud to teachers and peers and participate in home reading.
Print and cursive skills are reinforced through practice, journal writing, and classwork.
Students begin to write simple sentences using graphic organizers to organize thoughts. As students skills progress, sentence structure becomes more complex, spelling improves, and students began to form structured paragraphs. Students write book reports, journal writing, poetry, and develop research skills.
Students learn word families, create spelling lists from readings, study word origins and definitions, and test spelling skills. Picture and word labels, sight words, and nomenclature are practiced.
Grammar: Students study the parts of speech and their functions using Montessori materials.
Elementary Montessori materials allow students to develop math concepts and memorization of facts. Students receive presentations at an individualized pace.

Students participate in activities that allow them to engage in conditioning, strengthing, and rules. Cooperation and sportmanship are taught through structured and informal sports activities and games.
Why Spanish and English? We follow the Montessori philosophy and curriculum in a billingual environment. We believe that children should engage in both Spanish and English languages once they enter preschool so that they master efficient reading skills in English to ease the transition into a non-Montessori environment.
