Preschool – Sixth Grade
Our programs start at age two-and-a-half for preschool and continue through sixth grade. We are open year round for all grades from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. We design the programs for each individual keeping his or her learning ability and aptitude in mind. All students are introduced to the core subject areas such as reading, math, science, geography and history.

We start our reading program at age three and many of our students will read within months of being introduced to the concept. By age four all of our students are reading and comprehending and are able to do double-digit math.

Our teacher-student ratio is typically 1:10, which allows each student to receive the individual attention he or she needs to succeed. We are very fortunate to have a wonderfully diverse, qualified and talented teaching staff. All of our teachers have been part of the IMA family for a number of years. All teachers use a “love and logic” approach with the students and always encourage students to do their very best.

All of our elementary students take the IOWA test in May of each year. Every year our students demonstrate thorough knowledge in core subjects and excel in all test areas. On average, our students perform two to four grade levels higher in all subject areas.

The IOWA test is one of the nationally recognized standardized tests used to evaluate students' progress every year. IMA is one of the few Montessori schools in the Metro Detroit area that uses the Iowa Test to measure academic progress.

Summer Enrichment Program
Our program is year round to provide students with the best learning opportunity. We understand twelve weeks is a substantial amount of time for students to be away from academic work. To bridge the summer gap we offer an enrichment program that is available to current and non-current students and is designed to help each student learn and grow through an enjoyable educational and character-building experience.

The summer enrichment program is designed with two sessions: The morning sessions reinforce academic knowledge in a relaxed atmosphere The afternoon sessions will include a variety of play-based activities including soccer, arts and crafts, dance, yoga, chess and golf.

This year our summer program will also include the Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Aerospace Academy (SEMAA) program from NASA in conjunction with Wayne State University.
