How do children integrate into a traditional school from Montessori?

Children transition very well to other schools, both emotionally and academically. We regularly invite graduates back to the school to share their secondary school experience with current families and invariably find their experience positive.

By the time a Montessori student reaches 6th class, he or she will have covered the curriculum set by the Department of Education, the same as every other school. Their advantage will be the love of learning, independence and deep understanding of concepts, which is of course the Montessori difference.

Regardless of whether they go to a private or public school, Montessori students take with them a positive attitude to learning and to life attracting similar positive feedback. They exhibit high self-esteem, social skills, well developed organisational skills and the ability to work with others. They are inquisitive and know how to ask pertinent questions.
