Montessori Research Paper

Tuesday 1st February 2022

A new paper published in Frontiers in Psychology provides more evidence that a Montessori education may be more effective than conventional methods of education, especially when relating to students’ long-term psychological health and well-being.

Researchers recruited 1,905 adults who attended Montessori or conventional schools in the United States, ranging in age from 18 to 81, and asked them to complete a series of well-being surveys. Researchers then compared the survey results of the adults who had attended Montessori schools to those who had attended conventional schools. Their results showed strong evidence of elevated psychological well-being among adults who attended Montessori schools as children.
