Elementary Curriculum

Our Elementary Program again expands on the curriculum of the Primary Program. The Montessori system uses an integrated curriculum, rather than one broken down into discrete subjects. 80% of class time is spent on subjects other than reading and writing, so they get exposure to more subjects like the sciences, history, and foreign language than in public schools. Basic reading and writing is taught through research projects, reports, and other assignments.
Curriculum List:
  • Writing / Reading

  • Mathematics (through basic algebra)

  • Science (biology, botany, geology, and geography)

  • History (ancient civilization through modern day and U.S. history)

  • Art (including study of the Masters)

  • Drama

  • Foreign language (French, Spanish, American Sign Language)

  • Care of animals and gardening

Why Private Elementary?

With so many elementary education choices in Phoenix, why choose a private elementary school? While public schools are free, they are often overcrowded and follow one-size-fits-all lessons that can bore advanced students and frustrate others. Charter schools often have less experienced teachers and may not last through your child's elementary years.

At Our House Montessori School, we believe that children should be exposed to more than what standard public education offers. In our private elementary school, we treat each child as an individual with different learning needs and speeds.

We have offered quality private elementary education for over 30 years, with mostly the same staff through it all. For us, teaching is not just a job, it is what we love to do. Our 6-10 year olds will be joined by teacher Salli McCartin. Salli has taught 6-12 year olds at Villa Montessori for the past fifteen years. She has her Bachelor of Science in Arts Management from Northern Arizona University and Montessori Certification from South Mountain Community College and White Dove Montessori Services. Salli is the mom of a Montessori graduate and enjoys playing her flute and reading in her spare time. –Montessori is an education for independence, preparing not just for school, but for life.
