Do you require placement testing for new students?

Elementary students without previous Montessori experience may be required to complete a placement assessment prior to enrollment.  An interview process is used to determine if a child is likely to succeed in the Montessori environment.

Do you test students every year?

 Informal assessment is built into the curriculum. Progress and Mastery is tracked continually and recorded. Starting at age 6 students will take an online adaptive test for math and language. This is used at the beginning and end of the year to show progress. Optional ITBS testing is offered in the spring per parent’s request.
