Elementary
"A Time To Excel"

Marlboro Montessori Academy’s Elementary classes offer an intellectually challenging program whereby children learn in their style and at their pace. Our curriculum supports self-motivation over peer competitiveness as a much more useful tool of personal accomplishment.

The goal for the elementary child is to develop an understanding of life in general.  They strive to develop an awareness of the similarities of the basic needs of all mankind and an appreciation for the wide variety of ways in which those needs are met. We encourage an awareness of the interdependence of men and nations with a desire for cooperation and peace. The 6 – 9 age group is very curious and needs to reach outside the classroom for  more answers.  Wonder is intrinsic to their learning.

The elementary classrooms are multi-age settings which foster the spirit of family and community. Mixed-age grouping provides mentoring opportunities among the students. Peer teaching is key to the success of fostering confidence and self-esteem in students of Montessori Schools.

During the Montessori elementary years, students are very centered around the question…why, where, when, and how. These questions are often the basis for exploration and discovery.

As children mature through these elementary years, they gain the ability to go from concrete to abstract thinking; they are fascinated with all aspects of their culture and the grandeur of the world.

During this century other Montessori students have asked similar questions and, subsequently, had a major impact on the entire world. Founders of Google, Wikipedia, and Amazon were all students of Montessori schools where their creativity and exploration gave them the confidence to challenge traditional ways of thinking.

Their amazing imaginations are dramatically propelled into the study of the universe. The interest in integrated studies of science, technology and geography all come naturally to elementary students. It is in these disciplines that they can challenge the world with their question of “why not?”

You will see the genuine cooperative spirit of the Montessori philosophy during an interactive work period in a classroom. This multi-age grouping with peer teaching and learning is one of the hallmarks of the Montessori Method.

Elementary students go through a period of heightened social development. Group activity, community service, and going off campus to engage in the outside world (example , theatre or museum) are important activities. Learning about the government, elections, famous people, and current events are topics to discuss as we foster concern for the world around us.

Our elementary students work on a continuum of the Montessori materials.  Their program also includes karate, musical instruments, and technology, all taught by specialized educators. Time management is reinforced with weekly goal journals, a practice that allows students to make daily choices. Setting goals teaches responsibility and independence and prepares them for the next stage of child development. Peer teaching and learning continues with our older students as they work together in a contributive spirit.  ​​

​In 2004, the Marlboro Montessori Academy and Jean Avery received a United States Patent for math teaching materials.  These innovative “Math Made Easy” learning boards give students the hands-on Montessori approach to understanding basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
