Elementary School

"Montessori is a philosophy. The goal is to create a humanistic, respectful individual, to develop the full potential of a person in every area."
The child has reached the point of abstract thinking
Children between the ages of 6 and 12 reach the pinnacle of their mental abilities. Now able to form hypotheses, to use logic and reason, to glean information through research, and to make knowledgeable assumptions and suppositions; the child has reached the point of abstract thinking.

This is a period of strong social interaction in which the child’s moral compass has advanced beyond the simple idea of fairness, to a desire to not only comprehend why humans act and react as they do, but to discover ways of solving societal problems. Students develop both academic and social skills that they will use in their adult professional and private lives. For instance working with others, group problem-solving, respectful conflict resolution, leadership, empathy, and compassion.
