This is the eleventh installment of 12 Tips for Choosing a Montessori School which can also be downloaded as a free eBook.

An important measure of quality, when searching for a school for your child, is the number of students per classroom. This is typically measured in terms of Student-teacher ratio. Why is this important?

Many educational philosophers agree that a lower teacher-student ratio leads to a higher quality education. This is due to the fact that a teacher with less students will be available to provide more one-on-one, personalized attention to each student throughout the learning process.

Obviously, lower student-teacher ratios do not always equate to a more quality education. Factors, such as the teaching methods, classroom environment, and ability of the teacher to understand each individual child’s needs, all play a large role in the quality of education your child will receive. However, even with the best teachers, a lower student ratio is ideal.

At Montessori American, we adhere to a student-teacher ratio of 12 to 1. This means that a teacher will never be responsible for more than 12 children in one classroom. We have two Montessori certified teachers per class, with 24 children.12 Tips For Choosing a Montessori School

This individualized attention is combined with Montessori teaching methods and a classroom environment that inspires creativity, a love of learning, self-motivation, and personal development.
