It is true that we cannot make a genius. We can only give to teach child the chance to fulfil his potential possibilities.
– Maria Montessori
when a hundred years ago the first Montessori schools opened it was obvious that the Method would continue its success and spread to every nook and cranny of the world. Its magnificent perspective, concentration on the child and child’s potential presented a long-awaited alternative to the problems education was facing at that time.
Paradoxically, the beginning of the 21st century welcomed us to a similar reality – lack of individual approach, factory-line mentality and focus on testing and standardization are far from embracing most up-to-date research proving that a human being is only able to learn through activity and following intrinsically motivated curiosity.
In this ever-changing global village the Montessori Method provides us with an opprotunity to respect our students, to empower them without star stickers, A’s or smiley faces’ charts. The Montessori International School offers a unique program tailored to your child’s interests, based on the academic rigour of the Montessori Method.
I hope that the beginning of our first year in Poznan, Poland, will prove to be one of many that are still to come. I look forward extending warm greetings to you when you visit our beautiful school in person.
