Famous Montessorians

Visionaries, Artists and Leaders Educated by Montessori

We believe it is no mere coincidence that the founders of Google and Amazon were Montessori kids. The Montessori Method is designed to produce inventive, out-of-the-box thinkers and leaders by inspiring students to take an active role in their own learning. 

In contrast, traditional schools follow a model, established in the 19th century, that was designed to prepare students to become uniform and competent factory workers–the primary need in the Industrial Age. The modern technological era demands a different skill set, one based on creativity and independent thinking, which the Montessori Method provides.
