General Approach to Learning: Montessori

General School Mission

"To enhance and develop all children's musical appreciation. The school has an integrated music program based on Kodaly, Orff and Eurhythmics in a continued developmental sequence through preschool and 6th grade.
To assess and develop an art curriculum that balances art history, hands on crafts and basic drawing ability.
Each year the teachers assess what their needs are within the classroom structure and take a particular theme and work through that to broaden the base of the curriculum learning. For example, this year the theme was "Extensions of the Sensorial Apparatus and how it relates to the understanding of math exploration in the elementary."
To assess what new materials are available that would add to the Montessori curriculum and traditional learnings and to purchase them to complement each classroom.
