Elementary: Grades 1-5

Highly resourced, multi-age classrooms stimulate the minds, spirits, and physical health of students from age 6 to 11: Grades 1, 2, and 3 in the Peace Arbor and Grades 4 and 5 in the Peace Academy. Children progress from concrete to abstract learning, using hands-on materials and technology to build lasting layers of increasingly complex knowledge. Our cross-curricular Montessori program combines math, science, reading, writing, expressive art, foreign languages, yoga, and athletics with social and emotional learning to support character development and an understanding of global societies.
