Senior Project Presentations

Each year, New School Montessori sixth graders embark on a year-long odyssey, researching a topic of interest to them. They condense their fifteen-page papers into riveting 5-minute oral Power Point presentations. In the span of a pleasant evening you can learn about many interesting topics and characters from history. 

Our alumni often return to the school to support this year’s 6th graders. They’ve shared that their Senior Project experience prepared them – not only for the rigors of junior high and high school – but for writing, public speaking and the joy of learning they have experienced in their university studies and in their careers.

All are welcome to attend. It’s something special to see.

Elementary Camping / Community Trip
May 22 – May 23 all-day

Elementary-age students practice the independence and confidence they’ve built throughout the year in a new setting with new challenges at Camp Ernst. Students receive encouragement and cheers of support from teachers, classmates and parent chaperones as they wobble across rope bridges, glide through treetops on zip lines and rope swings, ring bells on climbing walls, paddle kayaks, and more. It’s a wonderful time to get to know one another better on this 2-day and 1-night adventure while watching students’ confidence soar as they reach one milestone after another.
