Building Blocks Montessori School began in 1972 as a nursery school which soon expanded to the elementary level.

Textbooks are used along with advanced Montessori and other materials. The children continue to advance at their own rate, with individualized goals and curriculum tailored to meet different learning styles and needs. It is a non-competitive and supportive environment. Small group meetings in all subjects are an integral part of Upper School for instruction and discussions. The subject areas in Upper School are art, music, computer, gym & movement, yoga and Spanish. Upper School children participate in N.Y.S. testing and take a yearly Stanford Achievement Test to aid in curriculum planning and evaluation.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
