The Sammamish Montessori School Photo #2 - Science is an integral component of our curriculum and we do a variety of experiments and hands-on projects. Our elementary students enjoyed learning about propulsion and building model rockets. Of course launch day was thrilling!
The Sammamish Montessori School Photo #3 - Students delve into a variety of hands-on math work that help them to solidly grasp the concept of quantity and math equations. In this case a kindergarten student has completed the Birds Eye View math work quantifying golden beads from one to 9,999.
The Sammamish Montessori School Photo #4 - Working with hands-on manipulatives such as number tiles helps students to better understand math equations and the concepts of carrying and borrowing. In this case a kindergarten student is working on a four-digit addition equation.
The Sammamish Montessori School Photo #5 - We have several playground areas with plenty of space to run, equipment to climb and play on. Recess time is an important component of our curriculum as it not only helps large motor development, and provides ample opportunities to socialize with friends, but also gives students a mental boost once they return to the classroom.
The Sammamish Montessori School Photo #6 - Our kindergarten students work very hard and demonstrate leadership and responsibility within their classroom and as part of our school community. We celebrate their achievements in a formal Kindergarten Graduation Ceremony at the end of each school year.
The Sammamish Montessori School Photo #7 - We offer a wide variety of summer camps and classes from Montessori to math to Ancient Egypt to Legos, space, art and art history, foreign language, magic, pets and animals, travel and world explorers, cooking and arts and crafts and many more. In this case students enjoyed a Pony Ride as part of our Pets Galore Discovery camp. Current students, new students, siblings, friends and neighbors are welcome to join the fun!
The Sammamish Montessori School Photo #8 - Our students love to learn to read and write and a great deal of time and attention goes into working to prepare each student to learn these vital academic skills.

As a parent I especially love how each student can progress at his/her own rate in a way that really nourishes self-esteem and confidence. In the elementary I love how students receive feedback and teachers make sure they really know and understand things, requiring students to make corrections to their work to consolidate that understanding rather than just moving on because the curriculum dictates it regardless of whether they get it or not. The caliber of teaching staff is excellent and the whole environment is warm and supportive not just to students but to families as well.

SSAT and ISEE scores are one part of the total picture which most private school admissions staff review. These standardized tests reveal what you have learned in key mastery areas.
Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
