Elementary Montessori Classrooms
Upper Elementary (4th-6th Grade)

Students in Pomeroy's upper elementary classrooms spend 3 years preparing for junior high by transitioning to abstract thinking and application in mathematics, reading, and writing fluency in language. Students also expand their understanding of specific disciplines in social studies and science. A strong focus is placed on student organization of time and work, with an emphasis on self-management and independence.

 


Two students, one wearing a black and maroon striped shirt with a navy blue long-sleeved shirt underneath, and one in a long-sleeved baseball tee with black sleeves and a blue body are both wearing safety goggles. They are standing around a brown faux-wood laminate covered trapezoid table doing a science experiment. The student in the baseball tee is recording observations in a notebook with a pencil. The student in the maroon and black shirt is pointing to the styrofoam tray where they have the experiment laid out. There are two rows of white circles on the edges of the tray which have sticks coming off the edges of the tray. The center of the tray has a row of brown circles, moving from dark to lighter across the tray. There is another tray on the table with 5 mini pie pans filled with white paint. There is also a spoon and a gatorade waterbottle with a green body and orange lid on the table.
