Melbourne Montessori Senior School
Teachers at Melbourne Montessori Senior School acknowledge that adolescent years can be very challenging. Students can often feel swamped by the new environment and expectations, making them feel lost in the crowd. To address this, the school has placed a strong focus on building students’ identity, which ensures they are guided to become the best version of themselves they can possibly be. This environment allows all young people to learn from their mistakes in an emotionally safe and controlled environment with the support of their peers and mentors. The combination of small class sizes and having two teachers to every class also means that students have a clear voice and are able to have their learning issues resolved early on. Melbourne Montessori Senior School is also transforming the way learning happens in its classrooms. The school’s differential learning model acknowledges that students can be at different stages of comprehension of any given subject, allowing them to progress at their own rate and learn in their own way with teachers continually keeping track of their progress to ensure they’re performing at their best.
