My children have thrived at Taft Montessori. Last June it was discovered that the students who begin at the earliest level, and stay through 6th grade score consistently higher on standardized tests than those at traditional schools. The key is 'those who stay through 6th grade.'

Taft is a diverse school. Taft celebrates the diversity, and teaches children to show pride in their culture. The Montessori method of educating children allows them to experience while learning.

The Montessori Method of Teaching allows each child to learn at his/her own pace. My children are able to study and learn 1-2 grades higher, while staying within their normal grade-level classroom. The children are given daily goals regarding their classwork, and are expected to finish their work independently. Montessori also requires the children to perform daily work duties, while instilling teamwork and leadership abilities.
