This myth is often talked about and is definitely not the case. In fact, Montessori children often advance well beyond levels achieved in traditional schools. This has been proven by their results. There are often comments that Montessori children are very bright and beyond their years academically when they are put into traditional schools. This also is proven as they move into high school.
Montessori at first glance may give rise to all these myths, but in reality, it is an extremely enriching programme that develops the whole child and leads them onto great success. By placing your child in a Montessori environment, you will definitely be giving them a head-start in life and helping them to achieve great success.
Montessori schools are focused on helping children become self-directed individuals, who can, and do, make a difference in their families, in their communities and in their world – famous or not. And that’s not a myth.
