A Curriculum Focused On Discovery
At Mountain Shadows Montessori School, we strive to break down the boundaries of traditional education by opening up possibilities for learning and discovery that support your child's development. We use an AMI recognized, Montessori curriculum where students as early as 12 months up to sixth grade are encouraged to develop essential social and academic skills through hands-on class experiences and group activities.
Our Programs Include:
- Young Child's Community (12 mos - 3 yrs) - Your child's development will be supported and encouraged in our beautiful AMI Montessori classroom environments. They'll be assisted in developing their gross and fine motor skills, language, art, music, and self-expression. By engaging in activities with a purpose, your little one will grow in their desire and ability to explore and create, while honing their concentration skills.
- Primary (2½ - 6 yrs) - Your child's ability to absorb information during these years is unequaled. We work with them to fine-tune their development in areas like independence, concentration, sequential thought, and controlled physical movement. They'll engage in activities that promote self-direction, social courtesy, and personal responsibility. They'll work with Montessori materials that will help refine their senses and will be exposed to math, language, art, history, zoology, and more!
- Elementary (1st - 6th grades) - With a focus on reason and imagination as a means to explore and discover new things, students of this age group will also learn how to contribute to the community around them. During these six years, they'll learn about subjects such as geography, mathematics, language, history, ecology, biology, geometry, music, and art, as well as Spanish and physical education. They'll take part in "Going Outs" (small group, student-led field trips) for further study in areas of personal interest. Students in the first through third grades will spend three days and two nights at the Cal-Wood Education Center, and recent trips for students in the fourth through sixth grades have included Washington, D.C., the Catalina Environmental Leadership Program, and the Teton Science School.
