Our Learning CommunityStudents, parents, educators, staff, and community partners work hand-in-hand to make our school successful.
The Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan Education Campus community is vibrant, active, and dedicated. Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan is comprised of Primary, Elementary, and Middle Grades programs with approximately 330 students enrolled in grades PS3 through Grade 8 in the 2014-2015 school year. We will expand to include eighth grade in 2015-2016.
Our Montessori trained, dedicated teachers work in multi-age group classrooms, a hallmark of the Montessori approach. They apply the Montessori method by focusing on supporting whole-child development by observing students’ interests and passions and using them to teach rigorous, common-core aligned academics. A specialized Montessori implementer works with teachers and support staff to ensure that authentic Montessori philosophy and practices are being applied at all levels within our school. Resource teachers, a guidance counselor, a social worker and a school psychologist provide additional support for students. Other educators who provide specialized instruction across all grades include a physical education teacher, a French teacher, a resource teacher, a librarian, and a theater arts teacher. Parents, the general community, and staff members volunteer to engage and support student interests during after school clubs and programs, such as our highly successful track and field team, our Fiber Arts Studio, and our K-Kids service club.
For families who choose before- and after-school care, we have partnered with Springboard After School, which staffs its extended day offerings with experienced schoolteachers. Springboard at Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan offers a variety of classes and activities, including painting and drawing, game design, dance, and cooking. They serve to support and enrich students academically, as well as developing their personal interests, hobbies, and talents.
Our parents work closely with the school to support fundraising, classroom projects, family fun nights, school-wide celebrations and teacher and staff appreciation events. CHML values and highly encourages parent engagement through volunteering at the school. Volunteer efforts and time greatly contribute to the success of our children and school community. Please ensure you find some time, an event, or a cause to volunteer for each school year that supports CHML and its students.
Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan Education Campus is a learning community whose highest priorities are excellence, implementation of the Montessori method, whole-child development, service, and collaboration. Students, parents, educators, staff, and community partners work hand-in-hand to make our school successful.
