The Elementary Program
MSNV’s Elementary Program spans 1st-6th grades, encompassing both the Lower and Upper Elementary levels. Students entering Lower Elementary (1st-3rd grade) are ready for new challenges. They are poised to pursue their passions and delve into their interests. With teacher guidance, these students begin to take greater responsibility for their educational journey. As students enter Upper Elementary (4th-6th grade) they recognize their interests, strengths and challenges. Because they are now prepared to take ownership of their goals, the Montessori approach for this age group allows for increased independence and leadership. Students develop a high-level of maturity and exceptional cooperative and communicative skills. They leave this program well-prepared to navigate social, emotional and academic challenges that may lay ahead.
