The Elementary Program is comprised of a mixed-age classroom with students ranging from ages 6 to 9 led by a certified Montessori teacher. It is equivalent to the first through the third grade of a traditional elementary school.
Similar to the Primary Program, children in the Elementary Program stay in the same classroom with the same teacher for the entire three years. The comfort and familiarity this creates encourages the development of a strong sense of both self-reliance and belonging to a larger community through outreach projects.
The curriculum in the Elementary Program is a continuation and extension of work begun in the Primary Program. In addition, children receive special instruction in music, art, French and computer skills. A variety of field trips throughout the year supplements the classroom experience. Past off-campus field trips have included visiting the SC State House, Pack Place, Children's Museum of the Upstate, SC State Museum, and many more locations.
