Research studies show that Montessori children are well prepared for later life academically, socially, and emotionally. In addition to scoring well on standardized tests, Montessori children are ranked above average on such criteria as following directions, turning in work on time, listening attentively, showing responsibility, asking provocative questions, showing enthusiasm for learning, and adapting to new situations.

Research has shown that Montessori materials and the structure of the classroom help children develop higher-level executive functioning skills that are clear indicators of school readiness and future success. These skills include the development of impulse control, working memory, task persistence, grit, problem-solving, creative thinking and managing time, workspace and resources.

Furthermore, because our students are educated in a bilingual environment, our unique education positions them exceptionally well for life in the globalized, multicultural world we live in.

A mixed-age classroom has strong benefits both socially and academically. As members of a multi-age community—one that more closely resembles the “real world” than traditional classrooms—students are continually honing their social skills as they find themselves negotiating their different roles throughout the day.

They are expected to serve as role models for their younger peers as much as they are encouraged to aspire to the next level.

Older students take pride in mentoring younger students and look forward to following in the footsteps of older peers.

Academically, our multi-age classrooms allow students to progress at their own pace without having to worry where they rank amongst peers—classmates are always working on different skills.

Not only does this foster their self-confidence and motivation, but it also bolsters the idea of seeing the “whole picture” by knowing what comes next.
