Because we believe learning should be immersive, educational, and fun


At STCS, it’s our priority to meet students at their own developmental readiness. This includes considering their interests and learning style so they have a successful experience at our school. We’ll develop a personalized Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for your student that will help them better interact with their learning.

Each student’s ILP addresses their specific academic and emotional needs. Every quarter, their ILP is revisited during parent-teacher conferences. We’ll also discuss your child’s homework levels and character goals.


The Montessori teaching method is felt throughout STCS. In part, this means we aim to keep homework to a minimum. In your student’s ILP, we’ll work together to choose an appropriate homework level depending on your child’s emotional, creative and intellectual development. Homework activities usually involve practicing class material and personal reading.



Growing up, you might remember memorizing spelling list after spelling list. At San Tan, we offer interactive ways to learn spelling words. Students learn how to spell by cutting letters our of paper, then sorting them and putting words together. We utilize the Words Their Way program to offer a hands-on, interactive approach.

At STCS, it’s important that our students have creative- real-world methods to learn. Recently, our 4th grade students learned the fundamentals of geometric planes by playing the game Battleship with their peers.

In our 5th and 6th grade Math & Science classes, students were learning about fractions and percents. To aid in their understanding of real-world use for these concepts, the students put on a bake sale. Our students did everything from baking the goods to figuring out taxes and profits. After the sale, the students earned almost $500 which they put towards new microscopes for their classroom.

Each grade at STCS has 1-2 field trips built in each year as an opportunity to learn new concepts and ideas outside of the classroom.
