Where do your graduates go after sixth grade at MICH?
Historically MICH's graduating classes have been divided equally between public and private schools. The public schools include Annapolis Middle School IB program, and Bates Middle School Performing & Visual Arts Magnet. Once the students enter public high school, it is common for them to enroll in honors, advanced placement classes, and IB programs. The private schools include Indian Creek, Key School, Severn School, Calvert School, St Martins-in-the-Field, and St. Mary's. MICH College Attendance

Why do Montessori schools group children by three-year age spans?
The child will spend three years in the Primary class (3 to 6), then three years in Lower Elementary class (6 to 9), and finally three in Upper Elementary class (9 to 12).

Is it difficult for a Montessori student to transition to a traditional school setting?
The resounding answer from our alumni is no! Our graduates indicate how prepared they were for working independently and in groups, for taking responsibility for their work, and for being able to problem solve. They are confident which makes transitions normal rather than scary. To quote one of our alumni Montessori learning sticks in your brain.

Are Montessori students successful later in life?
If success is measured by the ability to problem solve, to work cooperatively and productively within a group, to adapt to new situations, and an enthusiastic approach to learning, then Montessori educations promotes success.
