Attributes of a Montessori Graduate
Montessori graduates are prepared to function productively on all levels: intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. A person ready to participate fully in the world; a willing and able contributor; a self-motivated lifelong learner.
They are lifelong explorers
Taught how to learn and how to love learning, the result is they carry their natural childlike curiosity in their future academic experiences and into adulthood.
They have good character
Responsibility, cooperation, compassion, ethical behavior and stewardship of their community, the environment, and the world.
They are fun to be around
Their enthusiasm, civility, and respect for others are contagious. Much of their education has been built on social skills like getting along with and learning from all kinds of people; collaborating to resolve conflicts; and approaching life with open minds and open hearts.
They are comfortable in their own skin
Montessori graduates have grown up in a nurturing environment that encourages self-motivation, independent thinking, and perseverance.
They are Montessorians for life
They understand, and are happy to talk about, the gifts their education has given them. Self-confidence, resourcefulness, enduring relationships, constructive work habits - lessons that never stop shaping who they are and who they hope to be.
Reflections from Graduates
"Montessori is a very unique way of learning; you learn a lot about yourself. It helped me make decisions on my own because you have a lot of freedom, which really helps in later life."
"The Montessori program is an individualized style of learning that not only grows someone academically and intellectually, but also grows their personality."
"The thing I got from Montessori that has helped me the most, and really just enriched my life in every way, is how we were encouraged to follow up on our curiosities and learn about anything and everything."
"Montessori made me want to learn and want to be at school to learn and not just for the social aspect."
