Montessori Country School is excited to our students a variety of additional educational experiences that complement our Montessori curriculum. Children at all program levels participate in one or more of the activities described below.
Led by our beloved music teacher Angie, MCS students of all ages participate in our music program. Based on the Orff Method, children experience rhythm and movement while learning music fundamentals through song and the use of instruments. The older children begin a study of musical genres and notation while gaining experience with a variety of instruments including drums, recorders, xylophones, and ukuleles.
Our recent campus expansion included the addition of a beautiful Art Studio. Each week, Kindergarten and Elementary students gather in small groups with a visiting artist. Students explore a variety of mediums, learning about artists, art theory, and artistic methods in a hands-on and creative way.
Elementary students enjoy weekly fitness classes throughout the school year. In the warmer months, classes meet at Battle Point Park where we utilize a variety of the amenities offered to the community. In the wet, wintery months, we use indoor spaces like the Island Rock Gym for climbing, the Battle Point Transmitter building for gymnastics, or our classrooms for yoga.
