Students in grades 1-6 at Central Montessori Elementary stay with the same teacher for more than one year, learning through the use of hands-on, interactive materials.

The teachers facilitate learning by suggesting ways to solve problems and finding solutions, while allowing students to adjust strategies. Students learn through exploring and asking questions, individually and in cooperative groups.

We use a combination of Montessori manipulatives and instructional materials, and district curriculum (Houghton Mifflin Literature and Investigations Math). Students meet the Forest Lake Area School District's learning outcomes and standards.
