Junior High

IMG_7269Seventh and Eighth grades will be a child’s last years at Mercy Montessori, but in many very real ways, they are among the most important. Students are now adolescents, with all the challenges inherent to this phase of life. As their world begins to open, and their questions become more urgent, the gentle but structured environment of Mercy allows them to move slowly toward adulthood.

The goal now is to ensure students will have the education, personal discipline and moral determination to thrive in the more independent and less supportive environments of high school, college, and life.

In Junior High, children study Social Sciences, Science, Geography, History, Language Arts, Latin, Grammar, Mathematics, Practical Management, Music, Art, Physical Education, and Religion.

The educational process includes one on one interaction with the teacher, small group presentations, long term projects, journal writing, discussion groups, drama and musical presentations, computer integration and research, and large group presentations.

Lessons are combined with experiences to ensure that students continue to explore the interrelationship of personal morality and the real world. Philosophical ideas are related to natural and cultural history, and the Great Lessons serve as a platform for intensive study in the humanities.

In these two years students are also required to participate in service learning activities by volunteering with an agency in the community.

Mercy Montessori Center admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
