Students in our Upper Elementary learning environments exercise their growing independence by means of increased responsibility, through peer collaboration, and by exhibiting follow-through with independent studies.   Our Upper Elementary program is organized using the traditional Montessori model; students in 4th – 6th grade form the learning community, and they are provided large blocks of uninterrupted time to access the curriculum. The Upper Elementary Lead Guides share responsibility in presenting lessons, and the Classroom Assistants serve as tone keepers in the learning environments.
