In the multi-aged Montessori classroom, children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own education. In a prepared environment with a trained Montessori teacher, children may move freely around the room selecting materials needed to carry out the child’s plan. Older children serve as models for younger children; they also reinforce their own skills by demonstrating them to younger children. Students remain with the same teacher for two or three years, thus allowing the development of a strong sense of community with classmates and teacher.
Our program is located on two campuses. Our Pre-K through 3rd grade classrooms are at Maria Montessori (Haight) and our 4th through 8th grade classrooms are at Thurgood Marshall. You will find specific information on Marshall students at Marshall's website.
