In 1997 The Montessori Schoolhouse became a charter school and the Upper Elementary classroom was added in 1998, when the school expanded to two locations.
The importance of a child's first years of life as the foundation for intellectual, emotional and social development has long been established by psychologists, doctors and educators. The primary goals of the Montessori Schoolhouse are to instill self-confidence and independence and to promote concentration and a love of learning in each child.
Our carefully prepared classrooms for the 2½ - 5-year-old offer hundreds of beautiful hands-on materials in Practical Life, Sensory-Motor skills, Language, Mathematics, Geography and Science.
Our Lower and Upper Elementary classrooms, encompassing grades 1-6, offer advanced studies in Reading and Math as well as U.S. and World Geography, a full Science curriculum, History, Creative Writing, Social Studies and the Arts.
