ABC one of very few Montessori programs in the United States that extends the Montessori philosophy from preschool through upper school. At the Upper School level (7th-10th grade), the curriculum is exclusively college preparatory. The community closely resembles a workplace with individual contracts, group projects, team meetings, class discussions, and student/teacher appointments. With a fully integrated arts program, the academic work is rife with visual and performance components to encourage independence and creativity. The best part is the creativity and diversity go hand-in-hand throughout the fabric of the Upper School experience to create a well round individual.
