In the Junior Level Montessori setting, each student assumes responsibility for completing his/her weekly contract of work. The Junior Level Montessori program (JLM) serves six to nine year-olds. Using multiple kinds of materials, textbooks, and technology, the child continues age and grade appropriate development in math, religion, language arts, history, culture, geography, and science.
On a particular day, one might see our students:
- concentrating on a group project studying stars
- diagnosing sentence parts with Montessori materials
- independently researching a special saint
- immersed in Egypt’s past and present-one student donned the dress of Pharaoh while others scribed with hieroglyphics.
