MONTESSORI QUOTES

Quotes from Dr. Maria Montessori

“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.”

DR. MARIA MONTESSORI

“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

“One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

school Impact

Montessori Elementary at Highland Park is important.

MEHP was created because we know...

...the first five years of life are fundamentally the most formative. Healthy development during this critical time forges a foundation for educational achievement, economic productively, emotional and physical wellbeing, and responsible citizenship.

EARLY INTERVENTION

A majority of students are not academically prepared for the rigor of the 6th grade classroom. When new 6th grade students enter CGLA, 86% of them are three grade levels behind in reading and math. This multi-year deficiency not only creates significant academic challenges for both the faculty and students but also depletes the school’s social, emotional, and financial capital.

INVEST IN EDUCATION

Research proves that an investment in a comprehensive quality learning program will reduce and, often, eliminate achievement gaps and is a cost-effective strategy that improves the quality of a life in a community. Montessori Elementary at Highland Park will be the gateway for transforming lives in Chattanooga
