Founded in 1991, Granite Bay Montessori is a non-profit, non-denominational private school serving preschool, kindergarten and elementary (through eighth grade) students from Roseville, Granite Bay, Rocklin, Orangevale areas. For 25 years, Granite Bay Montessori has offered a unique journey from preschool to high school readiness for young learners.
Granite Bay Montessori offers strong core curriculum in mathematics, science and technology, English, reading and composition, and the humanities. The school also offers a rich program of elective subjects in the arts, fine arts, languages and music. Shops and clubs offer hands-on experience with computer hardware and software, electronics, gardening and other skills development programs.
The school features small class sizes and low teacher to student ratios. Classes are led by Montessori credentialed teachers in conjunction with a qualified teaching assistant.
Classes are designed to span several age groups because children learn at different rates. Rather than having to “skip a grade” or “be held back”, children learn at their individual pace while remaining with their social peer group. This provides a comfortable entree to education for preschool children who are ready to learn but too young for public kindergarten.
