In a classroom environment set up to allow for exploration, students are given a Montessori-driven foundation in independence, respectful relationships and physical development through hands-on materials. Our highly-trained teachers observe the children, introducing them to developmentally challenging activities in practical life skills, sensorial, language, mathematics, cultural studies and social activities. These formative years are crucial in setting the stage for years to come.

The Montessori approach assists the child in acquiring the social skills and self-confidence needed to fulfill his or her own potential. In partnership with their teachers, students create a written study plan and are supported in planning and completing work that builds on interests, develops understanding, nurtures enthusiasm and fits individual needs.

Recently, Cornerspring Montessori has expanded our offerings to a seventh and eighth grade middle school program. This two-year integrated program helps encourage lifelong learning by fostering self-confidence and independence at this crucial developmental stage. The curriculum has been specially designed as a Montessori-driven approach to fulfilling the needs of students preparing to enter high school.

Humanities

The humanities curriculum encourages students to engage in thoughtful interdisciplinary discussions regarding the intersection of history, contemporary events and literature from around the world. Students continue to hone their expository and creative writing skills while becoming proficient at research and editing.

Seminar

Seminar is a platform wherein students develop critical thinking, communication and analytic skills. After reading and annotating an article each week, the students lead a discussion in which they pose thoughtful questions and search for solutions to complex problems.

Mathematics

Students apply higher-order thinking skills to solve a variety of mathematical problems. Our curriculum includes pre-algebra, algebra, geometry and data literacy and follows national and state standards to help equip students for high school math courses.

Science

Students study both life and physical science during a two-year rotation. The program encompasses an experiential, inquiry-based approach to understanding scientific processes and knowledge of our natural world. Additionally, students have the opportunity to be involved in citizen science initiatives that allow them to participate in ongoing, real-world research.

Latin

Using the Cambridge Latin Course, students begin an exploration of this foundational language, which is a building block for modern languages such as Spanish, French and Italian and an important aid in navigating advanced texts. There is a strong emphasis on vocabulary and grammar; the curriculum also weaves in ancient history.

Micro Economy

Students learn to work purposefully and collaboratively in the creation and maintenance of a small business. In caring for garlic beds, they take on practical-life responsibility while also learning about fund-raising, money management and agricultural practices.

Community Service

Participation in community service helps pre-teens recognize and demonstrate how to be effective and caring members of our school and local community.

Fine Arts

The Fine Arts curriculum teaches our students how to use art, music and drama as creative means for expressing their feelings, observations, experiences and imaginations.

Physical Education and Health

Students learn to understand, value and adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise, nutrition, personal health and hygiene as well as coping skills to manage stress.
