Join Greensboro Montessori School for a virtual exploration of their in-person curriculum for students in 4th to 8th grades. The team at GMS will review their research-based, purpose-driven approach to education, followed by open dialogue with current students, faculty, and staff. They will also share how they continue to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students during COVID-19.
4th to 8th graders at Greensboro Montessori School are members of the Upper School. Students’ educational experience is rooted in the School’s mission: to challenge and nurture students to develop the skills and courage they need to unleash their full potential. But what exactly does this mean? It means Greensboro Montessori School authentically engages each aspect of our students’ development – physical, cognitive, psychosocial – and provide them with time, space, and security to grow into the people they’re intended to be. The School understands the developmental needs of preteens and adolescents and intentionally prepare its classrooms, curricula, and community around meeting these needs. This approach is in stark contrast to conventional, middle-grades learning which requires students to conform to the structure of the educational system in order to feel successful.
