- Dec 8, 2005Hi Jessi and Sandra,
I'm new to the group also. I'm Chloe. Jessi, how old are your kids? Will
you have them in Montessori all the way through to high school graduation?
I think Montessori schools are great but our hometown never got one until
after my kids already hit middle school. Would you recommend transferring
kids (teens) from public schools over to Montessori?

I don't know of any mainstream schooling across the
country that is very natural or perfect... but my kids
are in Montessori, which is the best thing I can find,
especially in my area. I'm in a pretty conservative
area of central Florida. Montessori is, as far as I
know, the best method currently easily found in the
US. There may be invividual schools scattered about
that have better approaches. Look into it, the
Montessori method is about NOT trying to make children
fit into an average profile. It deals with individual
learning styles and does not confine the children in
desks all day. My kids, and everyone I know who's kids
have attended, are 2 years ahead of other schools, at
Good luck in your search...
