Montessori education does not end with the preschool experience. It continues into the elementary years and is built on the Montessori primary experience. Children between six and twelve are forever asking how and why. The child's own questions form the basis for exploration and research, which is relevant to each child's personal quest. Students engage in open-ended research and in-depth s tudy using primary and secondary sources, charts, and timelines rather than textbooks. Montessori education capitalizes on the elementary child's insatiable desire to understand the universe and her place in it.

Elementary studies include geography, biology, history, language, mathematics, science, music, Spanish, physical education and art. The subject areas are integrated into interdisciplinary fields. One of the goals of the elementary program is to foster the child's feeling of connectedness to all humanity, and encourage her natural desire to make contributions to the world.
