Through DPS assessment flexibility, Denison Montessori School, has chosen not to opt in to any local interim assessments.  Denison Montessori teachers and administration have chosen i-Ready, a curricular (or instructional) resource, to support classroom instruction in Mathematics and English Language Arts. Denison’s 3rd through 6th grade teachers will use information acquired through i-Ready to inform their classroom instruction with appropriate Montessori lessons and materials.

I-ready administration windows for grades 3-6 are:

  • September 5-23
  • December 1-21
  • February 6-24
  • April 24-May 12
