Survey gauges interest in district Montessori school

Nov. 5, 2010

The Wauwatosa School District is conducting a survey to gauge interest in establishing a Montessori school in 2011-12.

The survey, which closes Nov. 19, can be found here.

A preliminary presentation on a Montessori school came before the Wauwatosa School Board last month, but board members said they wanted more questions answered on costs, interest from the public and more before making a final decision.

Montessori education differs from traditional classroom instruction by using multiage classrooms, hands-on activities and cross-discipline curriculum. The method started more than 100 years ago in Italy, and school districts across the country have started to embrace the approach more in recent years.
