Upper elementary students continue working to master academic knowledge and to develop learning skills. One might say the emphasis shifts from “learning to read to reading to learn” in all areas of the curriculum. As the students move toward the abstraction of ideas, lessons relating to the universe and the interrelationship of all things are presented. Students combine their reasoning intellect with their imagination to integrate knowledge of the universe from all aspects of the curriculum. The MOMI upper elementary and middle school students are also involved in Student Initiated Business Endeavors. Please refer to the Student Initiated Business Endeavors section for further information.
