Montessori Moments

What do our students value about the Montessori experience?

Two sixth grade students in Mrs. Fojtik’s class discovered what their fellow students value most about the Montessori experience. Hear what they had to say.

Painted Ladies

Ellen Scango’s class studied the lifecycle of the butterfly. They watched first-hand the metamorphosis process by raising caterpillars in class. With much excitement, the study ended as they freed the Painted Ladies back to nature.

Hickory Nut Gap Farm

Two weeks ago, the middle school traveled to Asheville, NC for a five-day field study at Hickory Nut Gap Farm. They spent the week living and working together as a community on the farm while learning about current issues around agriculture and the modern food industry. They held seminars, prepared meals, collected and packaged eggs, weeded orchards, groomed and cared for horses, and completed other tasks around the farm. Find more photos from this trip here.
