ELEMENTARY GRADES 1-5

Program Description

 

The "I AM" School offers an Elementary/Montessori based program. Children learn all subjects, including Math, Language Arts, History & Geography, Practical Life-skills, Botany, Geometry, and Sensorial Development (developing all the senses of the children). 

Children are given the freedom to choose their work from anything presented by the teacher or presented to another child. Our goal is to create a lifelong love of learning. 

In our classrooms we pull from many different disciplines of education so that each student experiences a varied and exceptional education.

We incorporate, the Ascended Master Teachings of the “I AM” Activity into our classroom work daily.
The purpose of the “I AM” Activity is to teach the proper use and power of the words “I AM” and the use of the Sacred Fire.
The principle is simple:  Inner Calmness and Spiritual Growth teaches
Self-Mastery. 

Whatever Life demands of them, the children learn to assert their God-given Dominion and do it to the best of their ability. 
By right action, they learn to conquer every obstacle, attain Self-Mastery, and strengthen their own virtues. 
The goal of this Religious Teaching - as given by the Ascended Masters - is to protect and raise all that is constructive in the world; to maintain God Ideals by worshiping God in the highest and most powerful way possible, through the use and power of the words “I AM”.

Teachers at the "I AM" School feel the educating of your child is one of the greatest privileges they will ever be entrusted with, and take it very seriously.  Our goal is to teach an academic and spiritual program that enables the student to master his/her own world, according to each one’s age and abilities.  

The "I AM" School provides a clean, beautiful, safe, and loving place for school activities that is away from the undesirable elements of public schools.  We teach ethical and moral responsibilities, instill American Patriotism and a love for God through knowledge and daily experience, and teach that anyone can do anything as long as he/she puts his/her thought, feeling and spoken word to it.

The school hours vary, and if your child is accepted to the program, a schedule will then be provided.

Parents are permitted to attend all field trips after signing the necessary waivers.  The school will consult with all parents before making any arrangements.
