Our Middle School students learn from an academic curriculum that comprises of the Montessori National Curriculum mapped against the Australian National Curriculum. This builds a high level of understanding and solid foundation to progress to a senior secondary education.
The Montessori elements of our curriculum, designed to prepare students for life beyond school, enable our students to develop well-rounded skills that can be applied in the real world. Students work to a three-hour timetable as opposed to a regulated time per subject. We believe this encourages an engaged and full learning experience.
The Brisbane Montessori Middle School programme is:
- learner centred
- collaboratively organised
- outcome based
- flexibly constructed
- ethically aware
- strategically linked, and
- community oriented.
The programme provides leadership development opportunities for all students. As such, this innovative programme embodies the essential elements of high-performing organisations. We believe this real-world approach is hugely beneficial to our students, irrespective of what they ultimately do or where they end up in the world.
