Triangle Montessori Academy


At Triangle Montessori Academy (TMA, we’ve had an overwhelming response to open a lower and upper elementary program. Our expected completion date is for the August 2020 school year.


The Montessori elementary program is divided into lower elementary (1st through 3rd grade) and upper elementary (4th through 6th grade), and the curriculum is based on developmental needs common to this age group, including social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth. There are six major areas of study in the Montessori elementary curriculum: language, math, geometry, science, history, and geography.


The teacher’s role is to present key information and material in an area of study and then to guide the children in developing projects to explore different aspects of the subject area. Testing is not a common occurrence, because the teacher knows each child well and keeps a record of their work.


It is common to observe children working productively even without any external rewards or consequences. Making connections between the things they learn excites children, stimulates their imagination, and gives them a sense that they already know so much and can easily learn more. They learn that they are not dependent on the teacher for all of their information, and they acquire methods of learning on their own.
