Montessori states that we are accustomed to thinking that it is we who mould the child from outside, rather than realising that it is the children who must form themselves.
Paula Polk Lillard, 2017

Subjects learnt from 3 to 16 years old:

When leaving school, students take a test similar to the VSB final exam. Additionally, each student is given a dossier detailing his or her course studies throughout their secondary education. Past experience has proved that this record of a student’s scholastic career is highly valued by high schools as well as by business leaders looking for an apprentice.
