Upper Elementary (9-12 Years) Montessori Curriculum at Sharanalaya

Understanding the Montessori Approach for 9-12 Years Old

During the ages of 9 to 12, children are on the cusp of adolescence. They begin to seek more independence, question the world around them, and develop a deeper sense of self. A study by the American Academy of Pediatrics highlights the importance of fostering critical thinking, collaboration, and self-expression during these formative years. At Sharanalaya, our Montessori Upper Elementary curriculum is tailored to nurture these evolving needs, offering a stimulating environment that challenges and supports students in equal measure.
