Elementary (1st to 5th grade)
In contrast to the primary child who is eager to learn about the immediate environment, the elementary child is interested in knowing and understanding the universe. With Cosmic Education, the elementary student is guided to become increasingly aware of the interrelatedness of all things and of the great order and harmony in the world.
Cosmic Education aims to help our elementary children understand the cosmic task of each element and each force in the universe. The children are inspired to work hard in order to preserve the harmony in the world.
English, Foreign Language, Math, Geometry, History, Zoology, Botany, and Geography are presented to the students in a concrete way and as parts related to the whole. In addition, the students are provided with the following extracurricular courses: Physical Education, Art, Music, and Computer Lab.
At any level, the Montessori directress gives utmost care to the way each lesson is given to the children. Lessons must be clear, beautiful, and striking to the imagination so that the children love what they learn.
Many of our Kindergarten and Elementary students are winners at annual poetry and essay contests, and become published poets and writers. Our students consistently score highly on annual achievement tests.
