The Montessori PhilosophyThe Montessori Method, based on the scientific research of Dr. Maria Montessori in Rome at the turn of the 20th century, is rooted in the belief that children (1) are innate learners, driven by curiosity and (2) thrive in physical and social settings prepared specifically for them.
The Montessori Classroom
Montessori CurriculumThe social and academic curricula are equally important in Montessori schools. Both are rigorous, individualized, highly structured, and aligned prekindergarten through grade 12.
OutcomesAs a result of this focus on each child’s individuality and development, Montessori children are confident, intrinsically motivated, responsible, creative, cooperative, and respectful. They emerge more than ready for whatever is next in their lives: college, the workforce, or community service.
