Why Montessori? Simply put, Montessori provides the best educational start for your children. Dr. Maria Montessori was a highly educated physician who spent over 40 years observing and educating children. Over 100 years later, her philosophy and methodology is being validated by current brain research and educational studies. For a woman living in the early 1900’s, Dr. Maria Montessori was a pioneer. She was a the first true advocate of the child, and her vision for education has changed the lives of children all over the world.

In our ever changing world, education has become more of a concern to parents than ever before. Children are individuals that have different learning styles and abilities. Explore Montessori, her life, her philosophy, her methods and how they can change your child’s life. Then imagine a school that has an innovative and collaborative learning environment, challenging academics, and a highly trained teaching staff. Imagine a school that gives your child the freedom to learn as an individual, nurtures each student while encouraging independence, self-motivation, self-assurance, and respect for others and the environment. Imagine a school in which students learn not to be afraid of making mistakes, they learn that errors are a natural step in their learning process. Imagine a school in which your child will receive a strong education as well as exceptional character development. That school is Montessori Children’s Community and that is the answer to “why Montessori“.

Outcomes for Students in a Montessori Program: A Longitudinal Study of the Experience in the Milwaukee Public Schools.

This study supports the hypothesis that Montessori education has a positive long-term impact. Additionally, it provides an affirmative answer to questions about whether Montessori students will be successful in traditional schools.

A significant finding in this study is the association between a Montessori education and superior performance on the Math and Science scales of the ACT and WKCE. In essence, attending a Montessori program from the approximate ages of three to eleven predicts significantly higher mathematics and science standardized test scores in high school.
