7 Reasons Why to Choose a Montessori School
Each child learns at their own pace. As a Montessori school we recognize that every child learns in different ways and at different paces. Students at St. Pius X Montessori School are free to learn at their own pace, and advance at his or her own pace. Guided by their teachers and individualized learning plans your child will thrive in this self-learning environment.
A Montessori Education nurtures order, concentration, and independence. From the design of the classroom to the daily routines of the students each part of the student’s day at SPX is established to support the student’s ability to educate one’s self, and to think about what they are learning. This way of learning is implemented in our youngest students, so that the core principles of order, concentration, and independence are instilled from a young age.
Students are part of a close community. A Montessori classroom will have students of different ages (typically spanning 3 years) to create a close community connection. Older students in the classroom become mentors and role models, while the younger students feel supported and gain confidence in their own abilities. As the only Catholic Montessori School in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, the faith component of our curriculum helps our students to not only feel a part of their school community, but the Catholic community as well.
Montessori students enjoy freedom within limits. Working within the guidelines established by the teachers and the classroom students at St. Pius X Montessori School are active participants in deciding what their focus of learning will be.
Students become active seekers of knowledge. Teachers create an atmosphere where students have the freedom and tools to pursue answers to their own questions, which stimulates their curiosity and interests. The result is a student who is enamored with learning, and becomes a lifelong learner.
Self-Assessment is instilled. As students at St. Pius X Montessori School mature, they learn to look critically at their work, and assess where they can identify, improve, and learn from their experiences.
A Montessori education promotes social-emotional skills.
