Firstly, I would like to thank so many wonderful parents out
there who keep sharing their wonderful views and thoughts despite of their busy
I am a parent of a 27 month old and I am also in same ambiguous state as of Ajitha who started this thread.
Personally, after reading through it, I became a strong believer of Monti system, which builds strong basics for children in the right way(stress free) following the pace of child and allowing the kid to explore themselves.
But , heard a lot from many parents that Monti school going children may have some drawbacks, cant survive in this competitive world in future , will have trouble coping up in higher grades etc.
However, I have visited the Shriram Monti school during a working day. Although I haven't talked to children, school management have taken around all floors of the school and showed the way classes are organized.I have seen few higher classes students also on top floors . Appears like , they donâ€™t follow any specific classroom approach even in higher classes.
They have informed that NAMC pattern is followed from Grade 1 to 6 and then From Grade 7 onwards,ICSE is followed. However, as I have not visited any other school in Hyd , my exposure to current trend of education/schooling is extremely less and hence not able to compare and draw any conclusions.
Can the experienced parents over here help me improve my understanding and ability to conclude.Some top questions on my mind are below.However, any sort of random/additional info also will help me a lot.
i) Can we any way compare this pattern followed by Shriram (for that matter, any other well-structured Monti school) with the much hyped "IB" curriculum being followed by many International schools now?
ii)Shriram follows ICSE from 07th grade onwards. Does this mean that by the time they reach 7th standard (12 years), they can cope and follow with the regular ICSE syllabus like any other school going kid ? (As it is assumed that Montessori kids have some drawbacks like delayed writing skills at the level of Grade 1 when compared to regular school kids.Does these issues get carried forward ?).
iii)I have seen Sudhir and other parents saying that if we interact with children at monti schools, we can find visible differences. Can you please highlight some striking differences you observed ?
iv)In case, for any reason if kid is taken out of the Montessori school after primary,is it true that other so called â€˜Big/Internationalâ€™ schools hesitate to take in kids coming from Montessori back ground?
Thanks in Advanceâ€¦
Thanks for the very good information about Montessori methods and clarifications.
Thanks and Regards,
