If we trust that the child comes into the world with his unique plan for life and that it is he who will unfold before us, then we know that these first six years are crucial for his self development. It is now that the imprints are deepest. He begins his work of living life on earth by taking from, and adapting to his environment and thus creates the man he is to become.

Children are always eager, spontaneous learners curious about the world around them. And you, the parent, are your child’s first teacher. At your knee your child spoke his or her first word, took the first step and heard the first story. The Montessori School House is an extension of the education you have begun at home. We at Montessori view education as an aid to life, as a process. Our role is to preserve and nurture your child’s natural curiosity and to develop an openness to the limitless possibilities of life.

 We believe that children learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process. Children not only learn, but thrive in an environment that is specially prepared to meet their physical, cognitive and social needs, and satisfy their intrinsic interests. Our curriculum offers children freedom of choice in a dynamic, energized classroom where learning is tangible. Teachers prepare the classrooms and supervise and guide children in learning their age appropriate levels or more.

 In the Montessori classroom, your child is in a total learning environment - the equipment, the activities, and the teachers all work together to support and encourage learning and growth: your child's discovery of his or her potential for success.

Through the use of special Montessori classroom materials, we help the child see, hear, and feel concrete examples of the abstract principles of mathematics, reading, and writing.

In developing the many different areas of a child's mind, we encourage a child to be mentally alert and inquisitive, physically strong and coordinated, emotionally secure and positive in attitude.

Kindergarten to Fifth Grade


The elementary program provides a full expression of the Montessori principles of self-directed, individualized learning in a truly integrated curriculum. By building on the basic skills acquired in the pre-school program, the elementary child now moves from the concrete to abstract reasoning. By the time students graduate from the elementary program, they have evolved from four-year-olds manipulating sandpaper letters, golden beads and sound cylinders into twelve-year-olds performing advanced science experiments, reciting Shakespeare and calculating the squares of binomials and trinomials. Montessori School House Elementary School follows the curriculum Standards laid down by California Department of Education.


The Montessori School House Elementary program balances the child’s developing imagination and powers of abstraction with concrete hands-on materials. Children learn at their own individual pace.




Language is an important component in the elementary curriculum. In this fully integrated curriculum, the student practices reading and writing skills through research in geography, history and science. Spelling, grammar, punctuation, word study and reference skills are introduced upon mastering basic reading and writing.




The student still uses manipulative materials to master abstract mathematical operations, but now progresses to working with fractions, decimals and geometry. When the child realizes that mental processes are faster than manipulating materials, the materials soon are discarded.


Social Studies


Fully integrated to reflect the interconnection of life, the human relations curriculum includes geography, history, science, anthropology, geology, music, art and other related subjects.




Once a fortnight elementary students visit the Rancho Cucamonga Library for library instruction, literature enrichment, and “Great Books” discussions. In addition to checking out books for their own personal use on a bi-weekly basis, students use the school library during the school days for classroom reading and research.




Classes are designed to follow the California curriculum standards by teaching theory followed by practical science experiments. The curriculum focuses on four strands: Physical Science, Life Science, Earth Science, and Process Skills. Elementary science instructional program provides opportunities for students to develop understandings and skills necessary to function productively as problem-solvers in a scientific and technological world. Students are constantly involved in the exploration and inquiry-based investigation of scientific concepts.




Classes are designed to enhance the elementary program. Students learn skills in keyboarding, computer literacy, computer applications (word processing, spreadsheets, and digital photography) and using the Internet. Special attention is given to the development of problem-solving strategies, critical thinking skills, and memory building.




Children participate in two concerts a year, Winter Concert and Spring Concert. Whole concert and the graduation program are hosted by the children. Spring Concert is held at an outside large auditorium to give the children an experience in performing in front of a large crowd. Children learn Hip-hop, Jazz ballet and other popular dances.




The music program consists of singing, tone matching, and performing in front of a large audience during Spring Concert, Winter Concert, Thanksgiving and on International Day.


Physical Education


Gymnastics, rhythm and dance combined with team sports, such as basketball, soccer, baseball, football and volleyball, give students a wide range of skills and knowledge. In addition to weekly physical education classes, every class has scheduled outdoor activity every day.


Before and After School Care


Our before and after school care provides fun, recreation and relaxation to those children who stay for a longer day. The younger children enjoy supervised arts and crafts, enrichment programs and story time, while the elementary school students may complete homework assignments and/or enjoy outdoor games and activities. The program serves from 6:30 a.m. until the opening of school and in the afternoon from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. (please note:
