For students enrolling in the Lower Elementary program:

Assignments that correspond with the fourteen Montessori curriculum manuals are to be completed and submitted by email or mail to your tutor for marking, according to your personally scheduled due dates. You are expected to thoroughly study all of the program curriculum.

The Lower Elementary diploma program now includes over 3.5 hours of online Math demonstration videos. We recommend that you watch each video prior to completing your written assignment. The videos are intended to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how to present the Math activities in the Montessori environment and are an important component of your program.

Please Note:It is important that you adhere to the timelines of our three consecutive twelve week terms. However we understand that sometimes extenuating circumstances, such as situations of emergency or duress, can disrupt study commitments. In these cases, we are willing to review and grant assignment extensions on an individual basis.
