Edith L. Frierson Elementary is a partial magnet Montessori school for District 9. This school year, we were able to grow our Montessori education options by adding another Lower Elementary classroom. At present, we have three primary Montessori classrooms (serving 3-, 4-, and 5-year olds), and two Lower Elementary classrooms, which serves students aged 6 and 7. In addition to our Montessori options, Edith L. Frierson Elementary serves non-Montessori classes in grades 3-5.
The mission of E.L. Frierson Partial Magnet Montessori School is to develop confident life-long learners who are competent, responsible, and self-motivated by providing a safe environment where parents and teachers support children as they explore an integrated, culturally diverse, and innovative curriculum that fosters critical thinking and creativity.
We welcome you and your children, and we look forward to working with you.
