Marquette Primary Montessori Academy (MPMA), an associate member of the American Montessori Society, offers a learning environment that is designed to provide for the development needs of children. Providing opportunities for student's academic, social, and emotional growth, MPMA staff are highly trained to educate the whole child.
Classrooms are multi-age and children remain in the same classroom for up to three years allowing parents and staff to collaborate with the child's best interest in mind. Early childhood classrooms serve children age 3-5 (including full-day kindergarten). Lower Elementary classrooms serve 1st through 3rd grade children. Adhering to the Montessori method, children are first taught skills using concrete, hands-on manipulatives in all subjects. As developmentally appropriate, children progress to learning all concepts in an abstract manner.
