School Notes

  • Our Elementary classroom strikes a fine balance between systems and spontaneity to help foster in the student both accountability and a love of learning. In this environment, children ages 6 through 9 learn to balance assigned work with self-guided follow-up. Students learn to manage their time while taking responsibility for the work that is expected of them.
  • At this time in their lives, children are eager to know the why of everything. With the foundation of their early childhood years behind them, students are ready to take off with new knowledge. Elementary then is a time to instill a lifelong love of learning and help students take responsibility for that learning.Unlike a traditional classroom with the teacher as the focal point, Montessori elementary classrooms are child-centered. Children are given lessons in small groups or individually. They work independently or with other students who have received the same lesson. Teachers are available to help guide students` activities and assist them when needed.
  • Students are given daily and weekly goals, both on a classroom and individual level. Goals help students keep focused on the work they need to complete throughout the day and week. Individual goals are determined through teacher-student collaboration. Students meet one on one with teachers once a week to review the week`s work and plan for next week. Following the Montessori principle of freedom within limits, students have the opportunity to choose their own follow-up activities to lessons. Since a variety of materials are used to teach a central concept, follow-up activities are varied and personal as students demonstrate mastery of a topic while pursing their own interest.
  • The scope and pace of study in subject areas such as Math, Geometry, and Language Arts are individualized based on the student`s need. An excellent teacher to student ratio allows time for children to have small group and one on one lessons in these areas.The sciences, history and geography expand throughout the Elementary years as students spend more time with longer range experiments, project, and research. Students work through a curriculum cycle so that in their time in Elementary they work on Physics, Biomes and Ecology, Animal and Plant Classification, Cell Biology, Human Biology, Chemistry in the Sciences, and Ancient Civilizations, Medieval Europe, Explorers, Colonial America, Settlers, and Michigan, in History and Geography. In Geography students cover physical earth, political geography, and geology.

Amazing school! My daughter has grown and learned so much in her three years here. Not only her academics are top notch; I have seen her develop her confidence and social skills tremendously. She loves her school and the teacher to student ratio can't be beat!

CMSAA is a terrific school for all ages through 6th grade. I see how the teaching methods, spiritual enrichment, and dedication from the teachers benefit each child in a different way; a way that is unique to them personally and yet instills in all, self-worth, values, and habits that are undervalued and overlooked in today's society.
