Early Childhood Program:
The Santa Monica Montessori School’s early childhood program emphasizes learning through all five senses not just through listening, watching, and reading. This is an environment where they learn at their own individual pace and with their own choice of activities from numerous possibilities. This is a unique private school environment where learning is an exciting possibility of discovery leading to better concentration, motivation, self discipline, and most importantly a love of learning.

Elementary School Program:
Children who continue to use the Montessori materials but can now work for longer periods of time. Their concentration span is well-developed. Montessori believes that this second stage of development is one of the greatest expansions of knowledge. Growth without major change marks this period as the children exhibit fairly constant styles of learning. The children are able to accomplish a great deal of mental work. They can concentrate, be self-directed and work independently.

The elementary curriculum covers more than mathematics, language, science history and geography taught in a traditional school. Learning these subjects is accomplished in a variety of creative activities. No two elementary classes are exactly alike. Each is a reflection of the students own strengths and interests.

Junior High School Program:
At the secondary level, the Montessori school teacher remains focused on the individual needs of each student. There are no curriculum requirements except those set by the State or college entrance exam requirements similar to what you would find at any private school. Students also design contracts with the teacher to guide their required work, to balance their general work, and to teach them to become responsible for their own time management and education.

Enrichment Programs:
- Physical Education
- Art
- Music
- Drama
- Field Trips
