When we are ‘in our element’ we are focused, engaged, internally motivated, fulfilled and strive to do our best. This is the basis of a Montessori education. The Element High School provides conditions that put youth ‘in their element,’ in school and beyond.

What engages us depends on our stage of development and so there are two programs at The Element High School, each responsive to two unique stages of development:

e1— Grades 7 – 8

e2Grades 9 – 12

Each of these programs takes advantage of the intersection of youth’s developmental characteristics and the requirements of the real world. This creates the conditions for focused engagement that lead to personal excellence.
