Why Geiger

Geiger students wearing face masks

Montessori is an educational approach that emphasizes self-directed learning. Geiger offers preschool through fifth-grade classes. Classrooms are mixed age, with Children's House (age 3-Kindergarten), Lower Elementary (Grades 1-3) and Upper Elementary (Grades 4-5). Students work uninterrupted for long periods of time on tasks they choose from a range of options with the teacher facilitating progress. The approach aims to cultivate concentration, leadership, self-motivation and a sense of community. Additionally, Geiger features a focus on peace with children encouraged to peacefully resolve conflicts and interact with the world.
