The Elementary program at Montessori School of Fort Myers provides a relaxed yet challenging environment where children in grades 1-6 can develop and learn at their own pace, in a non-competitive atmosphere.  The result is that the child develops a love of learning, a positive self-image and a sense of self-direction, which together form a strong foundation for future growth. The Montessori curriculum at the primary level draws the child into all areas of learning through enticing lesson plans and didactic materials in several academic and everyday living skill areas.  The children in a Montessori class will experience work in Math, Geometry, Language, Geography, History, Natural Scenes (zoology and botany), Physical Sciences , Practical Life, Arts and Crafts.  They will further their learning through working in the garden and participating in special classes (depending on availability) such as Spanish, Art and Music which are all an integral part of our school's curriculum.
