In our Montessori elementary school program, students learn in highly resourced, multi-age classrooms grouping students in grades 1-3 and 4-5 together. Lessons progress from concrete to abstract learning, using hands-on Montessori materials and technology to build lasting layers of increasingly complex knowledge.
Montessori was founded on the principle of observations and in addition to tracking academic skills, the teachers record social, emotional, and physical abilities to better serve the student’s needs and support their development.
Tracking is done on each individual student’s progress by grade and subject following the school’s annual subject goals and a scope and sequence developed by Dr. Montessori. Tracking is based on conversation, presentation, observation, self-assessments, and student portfolios, and progress is shared in detailed reports.
