Magnolia Montessori School in Oxford gears up for Mississippi Montessori Education Week

Students and staff at Magnolia Montessori School (MMS) in Oxford, Mississippi, are planning for the observance of Mississippi Montessori Education Week, designated February 28–March 5 by Governor Phil Bryant.
“The Montessori approach may be one of the best-kept secrets in education,” says school director Stacey Sanford.  “We believe all parents should know about this option, and visiting our school is a great way to learn more.”

One of Magnolia Montessori School’s students is ready to let this well-kept educational secret out of the bag.

Professionals affirm that the Montessori approach is on the cutting edge of modern education methods.  Multi-age groupings, a rich and extensive curriculum with hands-on materials, cross-discipline learning, and care of the global environment are just a few of the characteristics.
“One thing many of our parents and students appreciate is that Montessori classrooms maintain academic excellence without any grades, tests, or homework,” says Sanford.  
The school welcomes members of the community to take a firsthand look at the child-centered, individualized approach developed almost 100 years ago by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy.
