Providing Structure -- setting high, but individually tailored expectations

Montessori education supports individually paced academic progress that meets or surpasses state curriculum standards. Montessori children work within a written study plan for the day or week. Each plan lists the basic tasks the student needs to complete, while allowing them the time he or she needs for the task and the freedom to choose the order in which he or she will complete the work. Students are then free to explore topics that capture their interest and imagination and share them with their classmates. To assess their students, teachers give oral exams or have students demonstrate their understanding of a topic by teaching a lesson to another student or by giving a formal presentation. Concepts and skills not understood are taught again. Detailed Progress Reports are provided to parents at regular intervals. Our students’ outstanding scores on standardized tests, given annually to grades 1-6, are a tangible indicator of the academic strength of our program.For an education to profoundly touch a child’s heart and mind, he must be learning because he is curious and interested, not simply to earn the highest grades in the class.
