Frequently Asked Questions

  1. A Cobb School classroom nurtures your child’s excitement and curiosity of the world, by offering a variety of materials to stimulate and intrigue your child.
  2. A Cobb School teacher is trained to recognize when a child is ready to learn a new skill, and to foster his or her natural instincts and abilities.
  3. Your child is valued as an independent thinker and encouraged to make choices on his or her own.
  4. A Cobb School education provides students of all ages with information in a way they can understand and enjoy.
  5. Learning is fun, empowering, and custom-fit to suit your child’s individual learning style.

Dr. Montessori observed that children are more motivated to learn when working on something of their own choosing. A Montessori student may choose his focus of learning on any given day, but his decision is limited by the materials and activities—in each area of the curriculum—that his teacher has prepared and presented to him.

Beginning at the elementary level, students typically set learning goals and create personal work plans under their teacher’s guidance.

The Montessori environment gives children the opportunity and ability to choose the work that most interests them, as a result they tend to remain focused and attentive while immersed in their work.

There is a small but growing body of well-designed research comparing Montessori students to those in traditional schools. These suggest that in academic subjects, Montessori students perform as well as or better than their non-Montessori peers.
