Freehold Montessori delivers an exceptional academic curriculum that follows Montessori philosophy and pedagogy while
preparing our students to be active, successful adults no matter where their academic journey takes them next.
Multiage class grouping is a highlight of the Montessori
school education. Younger children learn from the older ones, who in
turn gain self-confidence through their roles as mentors. Students in
the middle choose either role. Each child needs both space to move
ahead and time to catch up. A finely integrated curriculum creates a
web of learning around multiage classroom. The curriculum builds from
level to level linking subjects within levels.
Freehold Montessori promotes leadership, project based learning and a strong sense of community through hands on
learning, individualized, small and large group instruction and interest-based skills instruction. Long work cycles allow
opportunities for students to explore their creativity, topics of interest and work independently at their own pace.
Our Montessori teachers guide their students through the academic sequence, making sure they practice and apply the skills
taught to ensure mastery of the necessary standards. We approach each challenge carefully and intelligently, encouraging
trial and error with full knowledge of differing learning paces and styles and developmental stages. And, we guide our
students through the challenge successfully without moving on until an activity on a concept is mastered.
