Elementary Program

Ages 6-12 years

Children have an amazing capacity to learn when they are between the ages of 6 and 12. In our classrooms, students may excel at different rates and progress at their own pace. In a traditional elementary school environment, students who advance faster than others may be bored as lessons progress, while other students might not fully grasp the material before the next subject is introduced. With Starwood Montessori School’s Elementary Program, students are on their own paths for learning with self-paced lessons guided by Montessori-certified instructors who are familiar with each student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Individualized Learning Paths

By the time students reach the Lower Elementary Program at Starwood Montessori School, they have been encouraged to work independently in the classroom and take responsibility for their learning. Teachers track each student’s progress while guiding them through individually tailored academic plans. This empowers students to take charge of their growth and development, both socially and academically. Yet, there are also group lessons that continue to polish students’ social skills and inspire teamwork in the classroom.

Student-Accessible Technology

In order to promote the use of technology, each Elementary classroom is equipped with an interactive SMART Board. The SMART Board helps teachers facilitate group learning and highlight important information. There are also computers in every classroom, which students may use for internet research, cultural exchange, and familiarizing themselves with technology. To further their technological education, Elementary students also take supplemental technology courses.

Challenging, Self-Paced Curriculum

The curriculum in Starwood Montessori School’s Elementary classroom may be self-paced but it continues to challenge students and teaches them to think creatively. In every subject, students may self-correct and work at their own pace for sequential lessons in each academic area. This promotes self-reliance and a love for learning that can last for a lifetime.

  • Mathematics – Lower and Upper Elementary classes incorporate visual elements to represent calculations in a base ten system. Concepts in geometry and algebra are also introduced in the Elementary Program to accelerate progress in Middle School math classes.
  • Language and Reading –Language education covers grammar, vocabulary, spelling, and composition with interwoven lessons to help develop these fundamental skills. Phonetic techniques encourage the natural development of reading and writing skills for every student with our self-paced curriculum.
  • Cultural Studies – Through reading, online research, and group lessons such as working in the greenhouse, students learn about their own culture as well as other traditions from cultures around the world. The higher level of cultural awareness achieved through these lessons can give students a better perspective for open-minded learning and social interactions.

Designed for ages six through twelve, the Elementary Montessori classroom is a unique and personal educational environment. Children are considered individually according to their needs, and individualized educational plans are formed according to their level of development.

Each curricular area is broken down into sequential lessons that are designed to be self-correcting, build self-reliance, and foster a love of learning.


The math curriculum follows a sequence of materials designed to give visual impressions of our base ten math system, as well as algebraic and geometric concepts. Children advance at their own pace using hands-on materials. Teachers assess the child's progress and administer lessons as the child becomes ready for his or her next step.

Language Arts

Beginning with a history of language and its significance to humankind, the curriculum moves into four major skill areas; grammar, word study, composition, and spelling. All lessons are interwoven and presented through storytelling and manipulatives.


Phonetic-based techniques are used to encourage children to read and write naturally, while mastering comprehension. As with mathematics, each child's reading program is structured to meet his or her individual learning style and level of development.

Cultural Lessons

Cultural lessons presented in the social studies and science areas are designed to promote creative thinking and problem solving. The lessons also aim to lay a strong foundation for cultural awareness, geographical concepts, and complex scientific theory.


Computer technology is integrated into all areas of the curriculum, including the use of telecommunications and the Internet for research and cultural exchange. Each Elementary classroom is additionally equipped with a SMART technology board.
