The Lower and Upper Elementary Program
Founded in 1974 by Regine Ebner, M. Ed., The Montessori Schoolhouse is Tucson's oldest Montessori school and has been recognized as one of Tucson's best early education programs. Since receiving a charter for grades K-6 in 1997, The Montessori Schoolhouse has been an award-winning public school and has ranked among the top-performing public schools statewide.
In addition to challenging curricula in Reading and Math, the Elementary program includes World Geography, a full Science curriculum, History, Creative Writing, Social Studies and the Arts.
Our Academic Program is rich in both breadth and depth. We present complete cultural units in subjects such as Ancient Greece, the Revolutionary War and Mini-Society in Upper Elementary and Ancient Egypt, Pioneers and Australia in Lower Elementary, just to name a few.
In Science, our curriculum is vast and deep, with studies in Human Anatomy, the Formation of the Universe, the Elements and Simple Machines, also just naming a few.
