"In a Montessori classroom the most important thing is the deep engagement of the students in the learning process. Maria Montessori called this "concentration", but in modern terms we would call it "flow". The ability of a student to be deeply engaged in their work leads to superior study skills, organizational ability and internal motivation. A major factor in developing this ability is the opportunity for students to have some choices in their learning process - and to pursue topics they are passionate about. A second major factor is to allow students the time to engage in an activity without being rushed and to be able to explore a subject in depth."

I love how you guys have been sharing articles by Andrew Kutt. I really really would like to create some type of partnership between the two schools. In particular the intermediate program. A way for the students to "practice" foreign relations.
