The Montessori Curriculum

" is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being." ~ Dr. Maria Montessori 

About Our Curriculum

St. Maarten Montessori School follows a multi-faceted Montessori curriculum at all levels. “The Montessori method” engages all senses and appeals to all styles of learning.

In addition to setting strong academic goals, Montessori education fosters respect, responsibility, resourcefulness and imagination in all students.


  • Primary  (3-6 yrs): children participate in lessons and activities in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language and Cultural Subjects.


  • Lower Elementary (6-9 yrs): children receive individual, small-group and class lessons and perform independent follow up in Arithmetic, Geometry, Language, Zoology, Botany, Geography and History.

  • Upper Elementary (9-12 yrs): students continue their work in the seven core subjects acquired in Lower Elementary; in Level VI, students begin a study of Human Biology.
