The MAC Elementary experience empowers students to reach their own personal potential and develop the confidence and capabilities to positively impact their world.
Our Elementary School offers an unparalleled opportunity for children to thrive by combining a progressive Montessori pedagogy, a dynamic experiential program, strong academics and a Spanish Language program. It's organized into 3-year programs: the lower Elementary is 1st through 3rd grade (for students 6-9 years of age) and the upper Elementary is 4th through 6th grade (for students 9-12 years of age). The mixed age groups allow each child to find a variety of peers at his or her own level of challenge and benefit from the experience of being a leader, follower, and observer.
Our students love acquiring knowledge, and gathering research. This makes our urban location the perfect match for interdisciplinary learning. Museums, historical sites, galleries, libraries, and science centers are within minutes of the school. They are easily accessible by public transportation which takes learning to a whole new level. After all, why just read about it when you can experience it firsthand.
