We have had the pleasure of having three of our sons attend the Northstar Montessori Private School program over the past 6 years. In that time, we have seen a consistent approach in treating each of our children as their own person, with a focus on their individualized strengths, a strong dedication to improving the areas they find challenging, and a caring pedagogical focus. The Directresses and Assistants are skilled at recognizing individual areas of interest, and fostering that interest to translate into personal and academic growth and development, while maintaining the importance of group activities and social interaction.
We have experienced the education system outside the Montessori Method and can safely say that Northstar provides our children with a stellar academic advantage. However, the most impressive part is how they provide this academic excellence with a focus on the individual strengths of the students. Our sons have vast differences in their learning speed and styles; Northstar’s staff has done a well –above-average job at recognizing the learning needs of each child and fostering their particular academic and social development.
Montessori education has helped to form our sons into the caring, attuned, respectful and motivated students they are today and we are excited to embark on the Montessori journey with our last child in September.
