Montessori is a proven educational model traditionally available only to families with the means to pay for private school. Montessori Works is making Montessori an option for more families in Delaware.
Demand for Educational Choices that Work
While making great educational progress, still only a third of Delaware students are reading or doing math at grade level, and the achievement gap is still wide. Parents are rightly demanding better results and more choices in approach and methods for their children.
A Better Way
Montessori is capturing the attention of a growing segment of parents, leaders, and educational reformers seeking a better way to educate our nation’s children. As Vision 2015 shifts to ED25, several emerging themes position Montessori as an ideal option:
- Personalized Learning
- High-Quality Early Learning
- P-12 Alignment of Curriculum
Academically and Socially College- or Career-Ready
In Montessori schools across the nation, research has shown remarkable outcomes in cognitive, academic and social/behavioral skills of 5- and 12-year-olds. Results showed significant improvement in 3rd grade scores, graduation rates and students’ social abilities.
