There are two primary classes at The Aquinas School and two at our Old Town Montessori School. Children in each primary class range in age from 3 to 6 years. Morning arrival begins at 8:30 AM. Children in the half-day primary class are dismissed at noon. Children in the full-day primary class and elementary classes remain for lunch and an afternoon session until 3:00 PM. Before-school care is available at both schools from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM. After-school care is available until 6:00 PM for children of all ages at Aquinas.
The elementary level consists of four classes, which will continue the development of the child, two classes for children ages 6 to 9, and two classes for children ages 9 to 12. The curriculum at these levels is expanded as widely as possible to enkindle interest in every area of culture, mathematics, geometry, language, history, geography, botany, zoology, earth science, chemistry, physics, art, music, crafts, drama, and physical education. The elementary children also participate in the Junior Great Books Program. Our purpose is to lead these children toward Dr. Maria Montessoris goal of cosmic education, which is a complete vision of reality and man, and an ability to interpret both of them in their essence, nature, and reciprocal relationship. The work at each age group represents a continuous program so those parents enrolling their children should be committed to allowing them to complete each three-year cycle.
