Kehillat Ashreinu Montessori School

Jewish Montessori Education for Boys and Girls Ages 6-12 

Kehillat Ashreinu Montessori School is located near the Kemp Mill Jewish community in Silver Spring, Maryland. At Kehillat Ashreinu Montessori, we focus on teaching students to love learning and Judaism. We do this through experiential learning tailored to each student's interests and unique learning style.

Academic Curriculum

At Kehillat Ashreinu Montessori, our experienced teachers guide student learning using the Montessori method. We offer meaningful educational choices to students while ensuring  proficiency in core subjects - including reading, writing, and math. Our language immersion program promotes fluency in both English and Hebrew, and our Judaic program covers Chumash, Tanach, Mishnah, Halacha, and Jewish history.

Life Skills

Kehillat Ashreinu students learn to think independently, develop decision-making skills, and cultivate relationships - with their peers, with their inner selves, and with G-d. Emotional learning, including how to manage emotions and interact positively with others, is a core part of our curriculum.

Montessori Teaching Method

At Kehillat Ashreinu Montessori, learning is child-centered. Each student has an individualized  curriculum driven by their unique interests, strengths, and learning needs. Most learning is done in pairs or small groups, which allows individualized learning and feeds young students' desire to be social and collaborate.

Arts Program

At Ashreinu, students learn the basic concepts of drawing and the elements of design. This program is designed to inspire and motivate young artists to express themselves creatively. Students study style from the art masters and are guided to finding their own unique style. ​

 

The pace of this class depends on the age and maturity of the individual students in this class, as well as the group dynamics of the class as a whole. ​

 

Our art teacher, Ms. Emily Gould, incorporates academic disciplines into art projects. Students learn how to write artist’s statements and create art in a variety of different mediums: painting, drawing, collage, papier-mâché, and ceramics. Students are introduced to art from around the world. ​

At the end of the academic year, each student has an art portfolio and an online digital art portfolio that can be shared with friends and family. ​
