The Elementary curriculum at The Glen is notable for both its academic rigor and the breadth of content. The impressive achievements of the typical Montessori elementary student are made possible by the child’s access to a range of stimulating Montessori materials, low student-teacher ratios and a focus on cultivating independence. Our elementary program engages regularly in field trips and service projects around our community.
Upper Elementary students (4th-6th grades) annually participate in the Montessori Model United Nations Conference. The class selects member country/ countries of the United Nations to research throughout the school year and represent at the international conference in the late winter/early spring. Each student acts as a committee member representing their country’s concerns in a specific area, such as Food Insecurity, Disaster Preparedness, and Access to Education.
To raise money for this trip, the students run Spilled Coffee, & Company, providing coffee service in the lobby of The Glen each day during the school year. In addition, they also host Pizza Fridays for students in Children’s House and Elementary school.
