Montessori

The Montessori theme offers students a nurturing and supportive learning environment that provides rigorous academic challenges while focusing on developing students’ social, emotional, academic, and physical needs. The curriculum is delivered through a hands-on approach to learning and puts students at the center of their skill development. The Montessori principles encourage respect, independence, curiosity, and diversity.

Montessori Magnet School at Batchelder

School Overview

Montessori Magnet follows the highly successful educational methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. Classrooms are mixed-age groups serving specific developmental stages: Primary (3-6 years; Lower Elementary (6-9 years); and Upper Elementary (9-12 years).
Communities of children support one another socially, emotionally and academically. Educators guide students to learn at their own paces, exploring and discovering based on their interests. Children learn through hands-on work. Elementary students are encouraged and plan to embark on “going-out” excursions that complement their studies/interests. Children emerge as independent, confident, compassionate, responsible participants and leaders of society. The Montessori program is Education for Life.

School Report Card – the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has prepared this report, which includes information about student enrollment, student achievement, student and teacher diversity, and much more.
