Montessori methods of education stretch beyond formal teaching strategies to incorporate age-appropriate attributes of students into the curriculum. Montessori philosophical methods of education include a hands-on, self-guided approach to learning. Montessori schools typically range from pre kindergarten to the sixth. However, many students make the transition to non-Montessori schools at the start of the sixth grade. Some Montessori schools extend to middle and high school. This paper examines the experience of a Montessori middle and high school education and the impact on older students.
