Question and Answers for Academics and Curriculum

question If Montessori allows the kids to learn at their own pace, how does it ensure kids choose a variety of activities, not just their favourite? Will montessori grads adapt to a traditional school environment?

In the elementary program, a teacher along with the child creates individual education plans specific for the child that details a plan of academic success. Both teacher and child are aware of the requirements for each grade level and work towards not only meeting them but surpassing them. In this way Montessori children "own" their education and have an awareness of both their strengths and weaknesses. Having created strategies for mastering tasks and overcoming challenges, children become champions of their own success. Since Montessori children have developed such important skills they typically transition triumphantly to any other school setting.
