My Students

Community involvement and social justice are more than mere concepts in our program. Students research and find their passion and interest and learn how to become involved agents of change.

Students work in small groups with specially created Montessori materials, developing a deep understanding of fundamental concepts in each of the subject areas.

As the child becomes increasingly able to work on an abstract level, reading, writing and math become tools for learning about the world.

Students engage in meaningful ways by following their natural curiosities. This fosters independence, strengthens self-confidence, builds creative problem solving and develops empathy and respect for the world around them.

Using the tools of research to analyze information and to understand subject matter for herself. Above all, the curriculum is designed to capture the imagination of the child and promote a lifelong love of learning.

My Project

California history is rich in stories and experiences. With a document camera students will have the opportunity to create presentations and follow along with each other. With multiple copies for students no one will have to wait, all students can be included in the small groups.

In small groups my students can read the stories of California history as told by a people from different groups.

Learning not just facts about the state, but stories from people's experiences. Making history come alive with narrative text and student discussions.

Developing research skills through in-class learning opportunities allows students a chance to delve deeper into a topic.
