Second and third grades make up the Lower Elementary class. Students once again are evaluated at the beginning of each year to determine their level of competence. The lower elementary students master the usual math operations using Montessori materials and special math booklets and can move on as they master each one.
In second grade students who have beautiful handwriting begin to learn cursive and before long are proudly writing all their work in cursive.
Students focus on improving their reading proficiency, comprehension and spelling. They begin grammar and composition writing. Students enjoy culture studies in science, history, geography and Spanish language. Art, music, computer keyboarding and outdoor physical education make up the rest of their day.
