Held at our Ludlam Road Campus, the Middle School Prep Open House is a chance for Fourth and Fifth Grade parents to meet their child's Teachers and learn more about the upcoming curriculum.
Our Middle School Prep classes for students ages 9 through 12 emphasize independent work, and working at one’s own rate. Students change classes for subject areas including science, language arts, language enrichment (composition), social studies, mathematics, Spanish, computers, fine arts, and physical education. Specialized Teachers in each subject area hold high academic standards and maintain a focus on internal discipline and self-direction. Students find unlimited learning to be its own reward and are prepared for success in any future educational environment. Critical executive functioning skills, such as organizing one’s self for work, time management, and prioritizing assignments, are developed throughout this program.
To further ensure a smooth changeover to a traditional middle school environment, Alexander Montessori provides a customized transition program for students in the 4th and 5th Grades. Students consistently go on to attend the best middle and preparatory high schools in the area, often excelling beyond their peers.
