Elementary Program Overview – Ages 6-12 / Grades 1-6
Elementary students rapidly develop the basic skills they need to navigate life within increasingly challenging academic settings.
The spiral curriculum of the Montessori classroom exposes students to many interrelated topics repeatedly over time. With each repetition, children build on the knowledge they already have, delving deeper into the details, seeing the connections more clearly, and ultimately developing a deep understanding of our complex world.
At Oak Meadow, we foster independence and confidence in academic performance. Our Elementary curriculum encourages students to actively manage their own learning within predefined boundaries established to ensure strong progress across subject areas. With a low student/teacher ratio and with the help of classroom assistants, teachers are able to devote attention to each child to determine learning style and interests. Each classroom provides flexibility for students to progress at their own pace, advancing in areas of strength and taking additional time to master areas of challenge.
