Welcome to E2

The Elementary 2 program consists of the 4th, 5th and 6th grades. The children are given lessons in small groups, at their ability level. In E2 there is a strong focus on collaboration and problem solving. At RMS our E2 Montessori curriculum also integrates STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects.

One special project that the 6th years participate in is the Montessori Model United Nations. Each spring the 6th years travel to New York City to work with other Montessori schools from all over the United States and the world! Our 6th years are also part of the IB-MYP program at RMS.

Please feel free to email the E2 guides if you have any questions.

General Updates

Learning Together

“The main thing is that the groups should contain different ages, because it has great influence on the cultural development of the child. This is obtained by the relations of the children among themselves. You cannot imagine how well a young child learns from an older child; how patient the older child is with the difficulties of the younger.” - Maria Montessori

Field Trip Fun

"There is no description, no image in any book that is capable of replacing the sight of real trees, and all of the life to be found around them in a real forest." ~Maria Montessori
