AlumniThe Arbor Montessori tagline is “Go here. Then go anywhere.” And that’s exactly what happens to our graduates. They flourish in high school, both public and private, and then attend colleges and universities across the nation. They study science, math, the arts, language…anything and everything.
No other pedagogy encourages creative thinking the way Montessori does. As Maria Montessori said, “Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” Traditional education is passive learning. Montessori education is active learning: it’s questioning, trying, failing and trying again. In other words, it’s innovating.
A child who is exhilarated by the ability to follow his curiosity in a Montessori classroom becomes an adult exhilarated by what he can accomplish in a boardroom, operating room, college classroom or anywhere he chooses to follow his interest.
