There is no other human being like your child, who was born with specific abilities, talents and interests; so why should their education be one size fits all? A Montessori education facilitates the development of your child into a happy, independent, and responsible young adult who continues to pursue knowledge beyond the classroom.
Montessori empowers your child to learn at his or her own pace, imparting valuable life skills such as motivation and self-discipline, decision making and problem solving, and developing critical thinking skills. In addition to presenting academic studies, a Montessori education facilitates key social skills such as communication, compassion, conflict resolution and the ability to adapt to a changing world.
Today’s Montessori students are tomorrow’s leaders and innovators!

What classes are you currently taking and what activities are you involved in?
I am currently attending the University of Missouri. I am majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I am enrolled in the pre-vet scholars program and involved in pre-vet club. The Pre-vet scholars program occupies most of my time at school because if I meet all of its criteria, I am guaranteed a spot in veterinary school at the University of Missouri. However, I am also involved in pre-med club because of my recent interests in the field of human medicine.
