Life at Montfort

Going beyond the
"best" when best is Not Enough

Tradition study materials are made for a class assuming that the teachers will teach and the children will follow. In Montfort curriculum, children often learn by themselves. Teachers are facilitators.

Children learn through application and discovery. Study materials are deductive and highly visual. Children find it easier to work with these materials and student friendly textbooks rather than traditional textbooks.

A year's course work is divided into parts called semesters and periodicals. This makes the bag lighter. Children enjoy finishing each semester and look forward to the next.

Each semester is aimed at mastery of topics inside. Children also cover more subject matter in an equivalent period of time compared to typical textbook/workbook/ notebook combinations. This is because dividing a year's course work into parts better engages a child's psychology.

Research shows that if we double the thinking time, we double a child's performance.

At the end of each semester or periodical there is a diagnostic test for evaluation.

Tactile understanding is followed by work in "creative worksheets" that we have theory is visual and creative ways. They allow self-learning and discovery. The work within each unit is further broken deep into short modules graded from easy to difficult. Further practice sessions focus on improvement of speed and accuracy. Even difficult subjects like Mathematics and English grammar come alive for the individual child. Every child moves forward more effectively and more joyfully and feels more intrinsically motivated.
