You can't go wrong with Montessori, especially our nationally-recognized private Montessori center on Cooper Anderson Road. These are the only schools in this county where students are learning.
Full of crap

Yeah right, you are so full of shit with that statement "These are the only schools in this county where students are learning."

College entrance exam scores prove the Montessori method is average at best......

Go to the school board main office on North Parkway and register for the lottery. The deadline is Feb. 29th. They will draw numbers at random sometime in March. You can either go to the drawing or find out the results online. Good luck. I've been trying to get my child in for several years now and have never even gotten close.

Also... I don't think parents should have to pay (private schools) or win a lottery for our children to get a good, safe education. I don't understand why we can't choose a school outside our zone IF WE CHOOSE to do so. It's not always feasible to just pick up and move...

So you think that the students from Madison County schools and the private Christian (that is, White) "academies" are college prepared?

You have no idea what you're talking about.

You are an idiot and yes I will put any private school up against either Montessori school on college entrance exams.

The other poster is correct, I have done the research, Montessori schools only test slightly above average at best.

Now see, you've made yourself look stupid (big surprise from someone who uses the expression "full of shit" when discussing education). Few Montessori programs go into the high school years. So much for your "college entrance exams." Yeah, those fifth graders' college entrance exams aren't all that great.

So is the school any better or not? Does anyone have a child attending there? I mean the kids have to keep the grade levels up right?
Montessori is Average

dumb ass did I say the MONTESSORI school went into high school grades locally.....NO!. Obvious reading comprehension is not taught where you went to school!!!!

I was comparing college entrance exams results from all kinds of backgrounds like public, private, christian, MONTESSORI, etc. and the FACTS do not show the MONTESSORI method is anything but average when comparing college entrance exams.

Locally, Medina and Issac Lane have the same or superior test results when compared to Bemis Montessori so you can take your superior (inccorect) notion and shove it because the FACTS do not lie.

It is a good school and one of the only public schools worth exploring in Jackson for K-8th. However, the method is not for all students and nor does it produce superior results as some falsely claim.

Just remember, those comparisons are for public schools with NCLB guidelines which are low to begin with but obvious to high for the vast majority of TN schools, thus why the state opted for a waiver.

Maybe it's not about "test scores." Montessori folks believe in education, not test scores.

How do you measure progression and mastery of knowledge/skills in the Montessori program if not through some measurement (test scores)?

I think you can measure progression without testing. If you have an open communication and understanding with the child, you will know what they are getting out of their education process.A child is an individual and will learn in their own way.

Surely you don't think that's the only way to assess student learning.

Ok, I will take the bait. Please enlighten us all on how they ascertain if a student has mastered the addition or subtraction facts?
