Elementary Program

6-12 year olds

We have two multi-aged Elementary programs: Lower Elementary is for children 6 – 9 years of age (grades 1 – 3) and Upper Elementary is for children 9 – 12 years of age (grades 4 – 6). With some exceptions, all children enrolled in these programs have had previous Montessori experience.

In addition to the rich Montessori curriculum, which includes Language Arts, Math, Geometry, Botany, Zoology, History, Geography/Science, Music and Art, MCMS also offers classes one afternoon per week for additional lessons in the areas of Fitness & Wellness, Spanish, Art and Singing.

MCMS also offers an after school program for elementary children whose parents are looking for care and fun for their child after the 3:15 PM dismissal time. This is complementary to the work of the school day with attention given to the child’s need for physical and creative activities.

Montessori Environment 8:00am – 3:15pm Monday – Friday
After School Club 3:15pm – 5:45pm Monday – Friday
