It is hard to get a sense of how my daughter is doing academically since there are no grades or comparisons against how other students are doing in Montessori. That being said, when my daughter was tested in grade 3 for the Province wide testing, I was surprised to see that she was performing at a Grade 4-7 level for most subjects. She was not behind on anything that she was supposed to be learning at that grade. In fact, she was quite advanced compared to other schools. All of the other kids in her class had similar results. With Montessori education, children are encouraged to learn at their own pace and pick subjects that they want to do. At first I was concerned, because my daughter tends to pick art or drama over math but I know they are working with her to get a well-rounded education.
