The Elementary Program at Summit Montessori School
The elementary years at Summit Montessori are challenging and exciting ones. The Lower Elementary program engages students in first through third grades in a rigorous academic program that builds core competencies and develops critical thinking, problem-solving, and research skills. The Upper Elementary program guides students in grades four to six through academic challenges of greater complexity and toward emerging adolescence with an emphasis on organization, independence, and responsibility, as well as respect and curiosity for the world around them.
Students participate in a range of activities that encourage them to take the core curriculum and related skills they are building and apply them to real world applications. For example, they learn how electricity works and build circuits, they learn to care for the environment and plant and maintain gardens and become Monarch Guardians. They tap maple trees and boil down the sap to make syrup, putting natural science and math lessons to work. They attend Nature's Classroom and Montessori Model UN, learning not just the science and history involved, but the human relationship skills needed to be good collaborators and citizens. They hone drama, music and art skills by participating in Night of the Arts - an annual Summit tradition.
