Learning Goals

The learning goals for 7th and 8th graders enrolled in Quantum Montessori’s Virtual Montessori classroom will focus on developing a strong foundation in Montessori principles, while also incorporating STEAM curricula, social-emotional learning (SEL) techniques, literacy, and entrepreneurship education. Students will be encouraged to explore and discover their individual interests and strengths, while learning how to think critically, communicate effectively, and collaborate with others. By incorporating the Montessori philosophy and method with modern subjects and skills, students will develop a well-rounded education that prepares them for success in a rapidly changing world.

Homework Offered

Each day learners should spend up to 2 hours working on independent asynchronous work. “Homework” is optional but recommended to take full advantage of this learning experience and to maintain homeschool records for your learner.

⏳ 4+ hours per week outside of class.

Assessments Offered

We offer learners an opportunity to have a full learning assessment upon enrollment. Assessment materials will be provided to families to administer then reviewed by our educators to assist in developing an individualized learning plan.

Grades Offered

Instead of traditional letter or number grades, students are evaluated based on their progress and mastery of specific skills and concepts. This allows children to focus on their own personal growth and development, rather than being compared to their peers. Quantum educators carefully observe and document each child’s progress, providing them with ongoing feedback and guidance for continued improvement. This grading system encourages a growth mindset, where children are motivated to constantly strive for personal excellence and deepen their understanding of various subjects. Through this approach, Quantum Montessori aims to create lifelong learners who are confident and self-motivated.

For Parents

We recognize the importance of ensuring parents needs are met during the educational process. To assist in empowering parents, our experienced Montessori guides, educators, and coaches offer regular support sessions and workshops to increase parents’ confidence and understanding of Montessori and STEAM.

Ms. Marquis, Upper Elementary Guide & Middle School Teacher

Hello! My name is Ms. Marquis and I have always been passionate about education and helping young minds grow and flourish. With over 10 years of experience in the field, I am proud to say that I hold AMI certifications from the Association Montessori Internationale.

My journey in Montessori education began when I was introduced to the philosophy during my undergraduate studies. From that moment on, I was captivated by the child-centered approach and the emphasis on developing independent, critical thinkers. I quickly decided to pursue my AMI training and have never looked back.

As an AMI certified educator, I am committed to staying true to the Montessori principles and always strive to create an enriching and engaging learning environment for my students. I strongly believe in the power of hands-on learning and creating personalized learning experiences for each child.

My goal as an Upper Elementary educator is to guide and support my students in their academic, social, emotional, and physical growth. I encourage them to be curious, to question, and to take ownership of their learning. My students not only excel academically, but also develop a strong sense of self, a love for learning, and a deep respect for their peers and the world around them.

I am incredibly grateful to be a part of the Quantum Montessori community and to have the opportunity to work with such dedicated and passionate educators. I am consistently inspired by my students and their unique perspectives, and I look forward to fostering a love for learning that will last a lifetime.
