Montessori Elementary School - former site of the school when I was in 4th to 7th grade

click to return to menu
The Montessori School was situated on a small lake (lake La'rue). It was a perfect setting for a non-standard school cirriculum.
When i went there the area around it was still undeveloped - for biology class and sometimes even recess we would
take long walks in the deep woods, collecting nature specimens and learning to love, respect and be ever-curious about nature!

The late 1970's 'original' Jackson Ms Montessori was incredibly cool. Learn at your own pace. they taught science, geometry, art,
foreign laguage and music in 1st grade. In your best subjects you could skip grades. 1st thru 3rd grade was at this location on State street,
Right where the arrow points, I can remember a project to dig our way out of school with a secret tunnel underneath the neighborhood.
I also remember edging across a small legde on the side of the building with 3 friends pretending we were in a dog's mouth.
