What is Montessori education?

For more than a century, the child-focused approach that Dr. Maria Montessori developed for educating children has been transforming schools around the world.

When you enter a classroom, you'll immediately notice something is different. You will see children working independently and in groups, often with specially designed learning materials; deeply engaged in their work; and respectful of themselves and their surroundings. 

The Montessori Method supports self-motivated and rigorous growth for students not only in their cognitive development, but their emotional, social, and physical development as well.

As we look across the nation at the growing challenges in education, Montessori is a solution to serve and support the whole child, encouraging them to develop a rich understanding of their essential role in the family, school, workplace, and world.

"Montessori education is student-led and self-paced but guided, assessed, and enriched by knowledgeable and caring teachers, the leadership of their peers, and a nurturing environment.

Within the community of a multi-age classroom—designed to create natural opportunities for independence, citizenship, and accountability—children embrace multi-sensory learning and passionate inquiry. Individual students follow their own curiosity at their own pace, taking the time they need to fully understand each concept and meet individualized learning goals.

Given the freedom and support to question, probe deeply, and make connections, Montessori students grow up to be confident, enthusiastic, and self-directed learners and citizens, accountable to both themselves and their community. They think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly and with integrity."
