At the Montessori Academy of Chicago the development of creativity is central to all we teach. Creativity and creative problem solving are integral parts of daily life at all grade levels.

Creative thinking and problem-solving

In our academic curriculum we challenge our students to become problem solvers and creative thinkers by constantly asking them:

  • to develop an understanding of why
  • to take another look at things they think they already know
  • to find unique ways to present their knowledge to others

Three-year Cycles

Once our students reach the Primary level, our classrooms are grouped in three-year cycles. Collaboration among age levels is integral to reinforcing leadership skills and encourages mentoring.
