A Montessori education focuses on preparing the whole child (cognitive, physical, social, and emotional needs) for life with an emphasis on knowledge, problem-solving, and creative thinking. Globally, those who have benefitted from a Montessori education can be found excelling in many fields, especially those calling for creativity and inventiveness, e.g. the founders of Google, Amazon, and Wikipedia, for starters.
"The former Montessori students here are shining stars...it is a breath of fresh air to get these students because they are well-developed socially, academically and emotionally."
-Lisa Crowley, Guidance Counselor, Fernandina Beach Middle School
