Choose Oneness-Family for Your Private Montessori Schooling

Why Choose Oneness-Family as Your Montessori School

Oneness-Family School provides the distinctive, cross-curricular advantages of Montessori schooling during the most critical years of a child's development--from preschool to high school. At Oneness, located in Chevy Chase, MD, children learn about the world by understanding their part in it all. Toddlers orbit a toy globe around a candle-sun to understand how the Earth travels over a year. Eighth-graders build consensus to solve global development problems at the Montessori school's Model United Nations summit in New York. Robust creative and critical thinking focused and sustained attention, self-motivation, with keen social and emotional intelligence are among the lifelong benefits of attending a Montessori school.

Benefits of Choosing a Montessori School for Your Child

The Montessori school learning experience is proficiency-based so each child will master individual subjects at his or her own pace while meeting or, in most cases, exceeding grade levels. Low student-teacher ratio, individual and small-group instruction, and a collaborative approach in multi-age classrooms support flexibility within structure. The Montessori curriculum features strong academics, foreign languages, the arts, physical fitness, cultural studies, conflict resolution, and mindfulness through progressive student-centric learning devices. Below are some examples of how your child can benefit from attending the Oneness-Family Montessori School. No matter their grade level we strive to help each student discover the world and themselves.

Preschool-K/Ages 2-6

Safe, comfortable classrooms with the full range of Montessori school learning materials support young children's curiosity, discovery, and deep absorption in educational activities. Celebrations of friendship, kindness, and respect nurture their understanding of what it means to care for one another.

Elementary School/Grades 1-5

Montessori school students master increasingly advanced academics while gaining confidence and skill in written, verbal, and artistic self-expression with the personalized support of teachers. They build independence and responsibility by tracking academic effort and progress through Daily Work Plans and checklists. Conflict resolution and mindfulness practices grow their social and emotional skills.

Middle School/Grades 6-8

Students hone their critical and analytical thinking skills in independent research projects. Our Montessori school also helps them strengthen communication skills using collaboration, creativity, and presentations in group work. Leading meetings, performing community service and internships, and representing the school on public occasions connect them to their maturing roles in society and the meaningful impact of engagement and leadership.
