Montessori

Montessori Classroom

Ms. Kipperman
 
Jamestown Elementary hosts an elementary Montessori Primary Classroom, ages 3 - 6. Montessori education, based on the work of Maria Montessori, is an interdisciplinary, multi-age approach to learning. Students work independently and cooperatively in a prepared environment which allows students to work at their own pace. Montessori teaching materials are designed to promote habits of concentration, initiative, persistence, and discovery, while the Montessori philosophy and community emphasizes respect for others, peace, and creativity.

The Primary Montessori Classroom has four main areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language and Mathematics. Art, music, science, and cultural studies are integrated into all areas of the classroom.

Parents interested in applying for the Montessori Program at Jamestown Elementary should visit Arlington Public Schools main website.
