Upper Elementary

Grades 4 - 6

"The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination. Our aim therefore is not merely to make the child understand and still less force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination to enthuse him to his innermost core."

- Dr. Maria Montessori
