"They're Montessori Kids"
I visited the Montessori High School in Cleveland with two parent-trustees from my school. We were inspired by what we saw. Those little 3-year olds do grow up.
One of my companions said of the high school students, "They're Montessori kids."
I asked what she meant.
"They aren't trying to impress each other. They're comfortable in their own skin. They are kind to each other and respectful of the adults. They're engaged in their work."
That doesn't just happen.
But it happens consistently in Montessori schools. Magic? No,design.
