Lake Country School offers a continuum of Montessori education from preschool (age 3) through junior high (8th grade). Each of our three Children’s House classrooms has an Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) trained teacher. Teachers work one on one or in small groups with children, offering a range of learning experiences children can complete at their own pace. Lake Country School’s elementary program is divided into two multi-age settings. Elementary 1 includes grades one through three & Elementary 2 combines grades four through six. There are three classrooms at each level. The emphasis in the Junior High is on independent learning, research, & discovery. Multiple real-world opportunities- including the Odyssey, rural campus Farm Stay, & the Bike Trip set our program apart from other junior highs in Minnesota.

Covid recovery plan
Our classrooms feel different from a traditional classroom. Students are at the center of each classroom directing their own activities & learning from one another. Teachers circulate throughout the room, observing & coaching individuals or groups. Our multi-age classrooms promote collaborative learning, a cornerstone of Montessori philosophy, & encourage the development of a strong community.
The Montessori prepared environment nurtures the intellectual, emotional, social, physical, & spiritual potential of the whole child. Children learn through purposeful activity carried out in developmentally appropriate urban & rural environments where the choice of meaningful work is expected & respected. We strive to be model citizens of a global community & to help children prepare themselves for life. As stewards of the earth, we share the belief expressed by Dr. Maria Montessori that within each child lies the fate of the future.Â
As a community, Lake Country School is committed the following actions: to be an anti-racist/anti-bias community -to implement a comprehensive anti-racist/anti-bias education at all levels; to actively recruit staff & families of the global majority; to remove barriers through financial support for Montessori training for people of the global majority; to listen, support, & work in partnership with organizations in our community & nationally that support equity & justice for people of the global majority.
