The People vs. The School System >
The child, through individual choice, makes use of what the environment offers to develop himself.
In this VIDEO our Middle School students talk about the experiences they have had in their own words.
"Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize..."
The Montessori Method evolved from decades of careful, scientific observation of children by the great physician and educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. Her focus on the individual child, the peaceful unfolding of self, and the prepared classroom environment offer opportunity for renewal in the appreciation of family life. It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, cognitive.
