Elementary Curriculum Standards

The delivery of the Montessori Elementary Curriculum is designed to ensure that students acquire the skills and knowledge they need to be successful. The Alcuin School program is aligned to meet and exceed Texas state standards. As students move into Upper Elementary, we additionally use the International Baccalaureate Middle Years’ framework to organize the way we achieve these academic goals.
