Greensboro Montessori School Open House

NBA superstar, Steven Curry said Montessori, “gave me a lot of confidence at a young age.” Google Founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page say in Montessori they were “being self-motivated, questioning what’s going on in the world, doing things a little bit differently,” and they attribute their success to that way of learning.

The educational foundation that children receive in the Primary, Elementary and Middle grades creates learning habits for a lifetime. At Greensboro Montessori School students learn to plan their workload including determining the time necessary to complete tasks. They develop methods of organization and complete multi-step processes within an allotted amount of time. Children work at their own pace within a structure providing accountability to their learning process.

The Greensboro Montessori School provides a dynamic learning environment for children from 18 months through the 8th grade. Mark your calendar for Open House on Sunday, January 12 from 1 pm – 3pm.
