The charter is a contract with the State of Arizona to provide a free, state-funded public education to students in kindergarten through 8th grade. Children who will be five years old before September 1 may enroll in the kindergarten. The kindergarten is a half day program, extended day is available at the parent’s expense.
The Montessori classroom is a stimulating learning environment consciously prepared to invite exploration and discovery. Children work independently, or in small groups. Self-directed hands-on learning is encouraged. The Montessori classroom is a multi-age learning environment. Grades 1-3 are in the lower elementary class, grades 4-6 are in upper elementary, and grades 7-8 are in middle school. The Montessori elementary curriculum builds upon the independence established in the preschool years. It is a child-directed, project oriented, creative and inspiring learning environment.
The middle school offers a challenging academic curriculum in a holistic learning environment which includes classroom work and special projects. These special projects offer hands-on learning and real-life skills in the classroom, out-of-doors and in the community.
Extended care before and after school, special after school classes, and a summer program are offered at our River Road campus only.
Khalsa Montessori School offers special education services for grades k-8. For younger children, information on developmental screening and services for children with special needs can be obtained from your doctor, your local school district, or you may call the Children’s Information Center (800-232-1676).
