Springmont, the oldest Montessori school in the Southeast, offers students 18 mo. - Middle School an integrated, experiential learning environment that inspires innate curiosity to grow into a life-long love of learning. Classrooms are large, light-filled and thoughtfully-prepared while the campus’ natural areas, gardens and farm animals afford rich outdoor science lessons. Multi-aged classes allow younger children to learn from older ones and older students to assume leadership roles. Special Montessori materials offer students hands-on activities that concretely reinforce skills, lessons and concepts. Highly-experienced teachers guide students through an individualized curriculum that develops the whole child - socially, emotionally and academically. PE, Spanish, Art and Music are important parts of the experience. Students’ Springmont graduates are confident, collaborative, engaged learners, prepared for success in Atlanta’s premier high schools as well as life beyond academics.
Outdoor Science Education at Springmont School
Outdoor Science classes foster independence, self-confidence and responsibility and connect students with our campus farm animals and gardens while encouraging environmental awareness. Our bees, chickens, goats, sheep, rabbits and turkeys are cared for by students while lessons in composting, soil quality, planting (and patience!) are authentically integrated into the care of our many gardens.
Springmont School Reviews
If you ask more than one question, you hit the wall very fast.
Otherwise, it seems to work for some.
And I wouldn't fall for the wall art they display. Maria Montessori didn't even want the kids to do free style drawing.
