What are the outcomes of the investment in Montessori education? Studies have demonstrated that children educated within a Montessori system are more prepared academically and socially than their peers. They are more advanced in their ability to solve problems and express themselves, and they tend to enjoy the educational experiences more than their peers in traditional settings. Additional outcomes include intrinsic motivation, internalized ground rules and ability to work with external authority, creativity and originality of thoughts, social responsibility, autonomy, confidence and competence, spiritual awareness and strong academic preparation.
There are many very famous Montessori graduates in our society. So much so that the Wall Street Journal published a fascinating article on “The Montessori Mafia”. Click here to enjoy: https://blogs.wsj.com/ideas-market/2011/04/05/the-montessori-mafia/
