The choices you make about your child’s education will have a profound impact on his or her life. The traditional public school education system focuses on a structured curriculum and evaluates students academically with tests and grades, but what about the rest of the child? Montessori schools take a different approach. Montessori classrooms are geared towards the students. The teachers are there to encourage and facilitate learning while the students electively immerse themselves in topics they find interesting. As a result, students build not only academic knowledge, but also improve their social skills and gain self-confidence. The Montessori Schools of Allen and North Dallas devised this infographic to explain the benefits of keeping your child in a Montessori program. Please share these facts with your fellow parents to help them make informed choices about their children’s elementary education.
