Lower Elementary - 1st to 3rd Grade - Golden Beads

Levels for traditional Grades 1st through 3rd continue with individualized attention and the Montessori materials but introduce more complex concepts, small group lessons and regular homework. The program remains student-centered, with teachers observing and guiding each child's efforts toward maximum personal success. Montessori elementary children are enthusiastic, engaged participants in their education. Students remain with the same teacher for three years at both lower elementary (traditional grades 1-3). Elementary students receive small-group instruction for each subject. Outside of these lessons, they are responsible for working independently or with classmates on assignments, group projects or pursuing individual interests.
