Upper Elementary

Our Upper Elementary community is based on educating the whole child through the Montessori method. We strive to help nurture and support our students into becoming empowered scholars and citizens of the  world. Our students learn so much more beyond the core academics, most importantly, how to enhance their executive functioning skills, problem-solving skills and communication skills. In our multi-age environment (ages 9 to 12), our students are given the opportunity to grow and learn together, at his/her own pace; the sky is truly the limit.
