Montessori Model United Nations
By participating in the Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN), students develop an understanding of the function and procedures of the United Nations, explore global issues, and learn about social activism. Fifth and Sixth Grade students travel to New York City and experience debating, public speaking, negotiating, analytical thinking, and conflict resolution.
Each Sixth Grader produces a Senior Project that requires significant research and writing on a topic and culminates in an oral and visual presentation at the end of the year.
Each Sixth Grade student chooses a faculty member or administrator to be his or her advisor. Advisors meet regularly with students one-on-one or in a small group to provide support as students prepare for the transition to middle school.
Charles River Study Leaders
The Charles River Study, an elementary-wide program, takes advantage of Kingsley’s location. Students learn about the history of the Charles River and study the environment that surrounds it and the School. The Sixth Grade students serve as role models for the younger students as they lead their groups during this work.
