The Montessori School Adds Sixth-Year Program
The Montessori School is excited to expand its program offerings at its Ka- lamazoo campus with the addition of a sixth-year program.
Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, The Montessori School will begin offering sixth-year educa- tion corresponding with sixth grade in a public school.
“We are excited to expand our pro- gram offerings by adding this sixth- year program,” said Head of School Ann Pilzner. “The opportunity to in- clude a wider age range of students in our school family is exciting. We look forward to sharing the Montessori tra- dition with students for an additional year.”
The sixth-year program will incor- porate learning through internships as well as on-campus curriculum. Each sixth-year student will complete three internships with local business- es throughout the school year. Jocelyn Clark, the upper elementary teacher at The Montessori School since 1998, will help guide students’ internship choices, vet prospective businesses, and align in- terests in the internship program.
“These internships will give our students an opportunity to follow their passions and develop hands-on learning and insights much earlier than a typical intern,” Clark said. “I look forward to working with our sixth-years as they explore and grow as students and indi- viduals.”
In addition to the preschool, kinder- garten, elementary, and childcare pro- grams offered at its Kalamazoo cam- pus, The Montessori School also offers preschool, kindergarten, and childcare programs at its Richland campus.
Enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year is underway. Campus tours and classroom visits are available by re- quest.
