North Yarmouth Academy (NYA) plans to open a Lower School for grades Pre-K through fourth grade in the fall of 2013. NYA currently serves students in grades five through twelve and will be merging with Meadowbrook Montessori, located in Freeport.
NYA’s new Lower School will integrate Montessori methods through the second grade and progress to an approach in the third and fourth grades that continues to foster curiosity and motivation to learn while preparing for an easy transition to the Middle School.
