Foreign Language continues to be presented to the children. There is at least one Teacher or Assistant who is fully bilingual and is there to help in teaching children Spanish. It is believed that the younger a child is when he/she is exposed to a new language; the easier it will be for them to understand, thus making the acquisition of a new language more achievable.
To sum up the Montessori elementary education easily - the love of learning continues.
The upper elementary students of a Montessori school are aged 9-12. Again, as in all the previous stages, there is an expansion upon what has already been learned in the areas of care of self, the environment, animals and others.
In the lower elementary, the child learned to develop responsibility and time management in their work cycle. Reading and Mathematics are firmly established, and we are now ready to take on the more substantial curriculum of learning culture, and the arts and sciences to a greater degree than is found in other more traditional schools. Children at this age will find their studies to be more in depth, but nonetheless challenging, stimulating and fun.
