The Montessori Program:
The Montessori program extends from ages 3 to 11 providing the following multi-age classrooms: Primary Montessori (ages 3, 4 and 5), Lower Elementary Montessori (grades 1-3) and Upper Elementary Montessori (grades 4-5). In Montessori classrooms, children engage in activities of their own choice in a well ordered physical environment. Montessori-trained children develop self-discipline, love of order and concentrated attention to and interest in student selected learning activities. As a public school, Drew Model School is the only elementary school in Arlington that offers the Montessori programs from preschool to grade 5.
