What impact does Montessori education have later in life?

Posted on: Sep 16

Research has shown that Montessori children are better prepared for later life academically, socially and emotionally. They have been recognized for their timeliness, responsibility, attentiveness, adaptablility, inquisitive nature and overall enthusiasm for learning. In one study, children who had attended Montessori schools at the preschool and elementary levels earned higher scores in high school on standardized tests in the subjects of math and science. Another study found that the essays written by 12-year-old Montessori children were more creative and used more complex sentence structuring than those who were not Montessori.
