The Montessori method of education is not solely focused on academics.
Academic excellence is only one aspect of a child’s development. Unfortunately, it is often the only one focused on in traditional education settings. That means the rest of the child’s development and well-being are not being nurtured and cultivated. This practice produces an education system that is unbalanced and does not provide a margin for creativity and individualized attention.
When exposed to the Montessori method, students learn skills that apply to life outside of academic education to help them navigate as a caring, informed person in the world.
These life skills include grace and courtesy; being environmental stewards; celebration of individuality; peaceful confict resolution, and much more!
