The Montessori elementary science curriculum is based on an interdisciplinary approach which incorporates studies in geology, astronomy, biology, zoology and botany. Children are introduced to experiments and fieldwork which give real meaning to this area of study. When the children are young, gardening, park cleaning, and walks help to reinforce a respect for nature.
In the 9-12 program, children take an annual trip to Nature's Classroom Institute, an outdoor school facility located in Wisconsin, where they experience nature and learn different areas of research and studies. Students spend the week focused on science related issues in a controlled setting, specifically set up to help inspire children's appreciation of nature.
