Day School Curriculum (K-3)
What You Need to Know...
 
Our school year begins September 8th and ends on June 12th. **Please see our school's calendar for other important dates.
 
Our Montessori grade day school program offers individualized instruction and evaluation.  Students learn in a multi-age setting where children are grouped ages 6-8 to allow for cognitive development absent of competition.  Teachers (Guides) evaluate each child's work on an on-going basis. Parent-teacher conferences take place at the middle and end of each school year in an effort to establish goals and work on areas of improvement.  Assessments are given at the beginning and the end of the school year.  Grade reports are finalized during the week of June 14th.
