No two individuals are alike. Not all children learn in the same way or at the same pace. The Modern Montessori Charter School program will meet the needs of both the struggling as well as the advanced learners by allowing students to learn at their own pace. Differentiation is at the core of our program. Advanced learners are allowed to move ahead with more challenging lessons. Struggling students are allowed to spend the time they need to master a concept before moving on. This self-paced model of learning builds an intrinsic desire and motivation to learn, which results in success.

The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind.
— Dr. Maria Montessori
