Elementary

Our family cannot say enough wonderful things about Montessori ONE Academy. Our daughters are enthusiastic about life and learning. They are growing into responsible, independent, thoughtful, intelligent people and we give credit to Montessori ONE teachers and staff, as much as, the Montessori Method itself. The instruction is top-notch and is available through 6th grade. The administration is open and responsive to feedback and questions. The facility is world class. We highly recommend Montessori ONE Academy to families considering private education and interested in an alternative to the traditional classroom dynamic.

THE CURRICULUM

As one of the top private schools in Albuquerque, Montessori ONE challenges children using the Montessori Method. When compared to the national core standards and benchmarks, Montessori ONE children progress through and consistently exceed those benchmarks.

The Montessori curriculum promotes a global perspective that is academically rich and challenging. It takes an integrated, thematic approach that ties the separate disciplines together into a coherent, meaningful whole. We call this “Cosmic Education”. Studies of the physical universe, the world of nature, and the human experience are explored inter-relationally. In this way, one lesson leads to many others. We call these “The Great Lessons”.  The stories give the child a context for all future learning and a way of seeing the relevance in what they learn. Science and social sciences such as anthropology, biology, astronomy, geology, history and chemistry are integrated with mathematics, language, arts, and music.
