Our Take: Tall Pines School
Tall Pines isn’t your typical Montessori school, in part because it sees the Montessori approach not as an end in itself, but rather as a starting point. There are lots of things here that Maria Montessori wouldn’t recognize, from school uniforms to 21st century literacies; from a robust athletics program, to a larger, more diverse student body. All of those things are very intentional, and Tall Pines has built its program to be innovative, offering the best of both Montessori and progressive instructional approaches. Administration is aware that they have options, and therefore the students do as well.
