Wednesday Walk-Throughs At Sedgefield MontessoriWe encourage parents to sign up for a Wednesday Walk-Through to observe Secondary Montessori in action. Rotating through each classroom, you will observe students working on Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies. You will receive a checklist to guide your visit. We ask that families limit visitors to adults only, as we want to limit the amount of disruption during work cycle. Fifth- and sixth-grade students will have the opportunity to visit the school during a work cycle. Watch for more information from your child’s teacher.
Paper Covers Efforts to Expand Secondary Montessori The Charlotte Observer highlighted Sedgefield Montessori and the efforts of our five-school family to expand our successful program through 12th grade. Check out the article here!
