      Hi 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?



      Peace,

      Chloe

      Hi Sandra,
      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
      least.
      Good luck in your search...
      love,
      Jessi
