Common Community Questions
Q8 – What are the main features of the adolescent program and their age groupings?
Our Adolescent Community Program will be for ages 12-15 and will have some common features, for example there will be mixed age grouping and still maintain the morning and afternoon uninterrupted blocks of work time, but it will begin looking a bit more like a traditional middle school schedule. Each community will realize a 13:1 student teacher ratio and the educational program will feature place-based education underpinned by the Montessori philosophy and what science already tells us about how adolescents learn best. If you want to know more about place-based education, we encourage you to look at Teton Science Schools Place Based Network as they will be our partners in developing a rigorous program tailored just for our community.
Many community members shared interest in being able to access answers to community questions in an auditory format. We have compiled a list of videos addressing the most frequently asked questions we've received to date.
You can view all of the videos in a single playlist, Common Questions, or individually by selecting a question from the list below.
If you have questions, comments or concerns, please let us know. We want to hear your feedback.
community input session results survey
We are sorry you were not able to attend our event and share your thoughts. This survey represents the combined feedback from both community sessions. We would like to get your opinions on which elements are the most important and see if you have further input to provide. This information will guide us in future exploration and planning as we continue to prepare to open Pullman's first public Montessori school.
