The lower elementary class is designed for children between the ages of 6-8 years old. The upper elementary class is for children between the ages of 8-12 years old. St. Paul’s Episcopal Montessori School provides a most unique and exceptional educational environment at the elementary level.
This program creates a free learning environment which supports each student in concentrating on his or her own work at the comfort of their own individual pace. Thus each child strives to excel by their own standards and not by the standards of other classmates. Having older and younger children combined in an instructional setting further encourages the children to work together and respect one another. Our curriculum is individualized and based on each child’s learning ability and knowledge base, not age. Due to a low teacher to student ratio, each child gets personal attention and instruction. Often times, our students in the elementary program are doing work well above their grade level, placing their academics one maybe two years ahead of themselves. Once a student completes our elementary program they have not only excelled academically, but are ready to be placed in larger social environments within middle school.
