What People Are Saying about Montessori

“Let’s learn from Montessori: …we don’t have to reinvent the wheel…. The example of thousands of Montessori schools is before us. Montessori puts the student at the center. It is proven to work… it’s working on every inhabited continent, at every economic level. The approach is over 100 years old but the ideas are timeless.
Steven Denning, Forbes Magazine
“I see the thread of Montessori through my children’s life journeys.  They didn’t have to take time off to ‘find themselves.’ They had been discovering who they were since their first day of Primary. Montessori allowed them to flourish”.
Deidre Newfield, Arbor Alumni Parent
“Montessori is a brain-based developmental method that allows children to make creative choices in discovering people, places and knowledge of the world.”
Dr. Steven Hughes, President, American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology
“I do not believe there is a method better than Montessori for making children sensitive to the beauties of the world and awakening their curiosity regarding the secrets of life.”
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Nobel Laureate & Former Montessori Student
“I left Arbor with all the right buzz-word qualities in my back pocket: curiosity, independence, open-mindedness, etc. But it was in the times when these qualities were put to the test that I realized how truly prepared to take on the world I was after leaving Arbor.”
Kelly Perry, Arbor Class of 2004
