Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and educator, a noted humanitarian and devout Catholic best known for the philosophy of education, which bears her name. Her educational method is in use today in public and private schools throughout the world. Maria Montessori was born in Chiaravalle, Italy, on August 31, 1870. She graduated from medical school in 1896 and went on to become one of the fi

Socially, middle school students will be learning to navigate increasingly complex social and interpersonal interactions. It can be an emotional time for kids, so support from teachers and parents is crucial for a successful experience.
Many private preschools focus on activity-based learning (ABL), which means teachers act as facilitators rather than instructors. As a result, the teacher’s goal is to help students become involved in fun learning tasks, stay engaged in the activity, and participate positively.
Private schools provide children with quality academics in a safe and orderly environment surrounded with a value system of strong morals and ethics, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). In fact, parents often enroll their children in private schools because they see the schools as embracing their family values.
Did you know that it’s estimated that at least half of all welfare recipients do not possess a high school diploma? This is strong evidence of the importance of a high quality high school education in a person’s overall success in life.

While your child may start the school year focused on their studies, a number of peer pressure situations can quickly pull them off course. Transferring your child to a new academic environment can help them get back on the right educational path.
It’s always a good time to think about your child’s education. It doesn’t matter if it’s the middle of the semester or during summer break; if you have questions about your child’s enrollment, don’t hesitate to ask.
What’s the difference between public and private high schools? One key distinction is curriculum. By law, public schools must follow the state teaching curriculum. Private schools, on the other hand, can and usually do design a custom curriculum that often incorporates higher academic achievement standards.
Unfortunately, even the best behaved children can pick up bad and disrespectful habits in overcrowded public school classes. Let’s discuss how our atmosphere may shield your children from some of these behaviors.
As your child gets older, you may discover that they have to spend a great deal of classroom time learning material for a state test. When you’d rather your child not focus so much on a single test, a private school environment may be better.
Studies show that children who fall behind academically during their first years of education most often do not make up that gap. A quality preschool education allows a child to compete on a more equal playing field with others.
By necessity and by law, religion and religious teachings are explicitly kept out of public schools. One of the major benefits of private schools is that they're allowed the freedom to teach to whatever belief systems they want to follow.
The HighScope Perry Preschool Study concluded that kids who start education in a quality preschool program grow up to earn as much as $2,000 a month more than their peers who did not have any preschool exposure.
A child’s development and education can be very delicate and requires special attention. We take this duty very seriously and strive for close and professional student/teacher relationships.
The administrators of private schools spend a lot of time and attention in vetting their teachers. This includes thoroughly checking the teacher's references and making sure they hire the best candidate so you can be sure they'll take care of your children.
Like all specialties, education has its own acronyms. "ABL" stands for "activity-based learning." "CBL" refers to "computer-based learning." "STEM" stands for "science, technology, engineering, and math." "Common Core" is shorthand for the "Common Core Curriculum."
One advantage offered by private high school is the culture that is created for students. Here, it is cool to be smart and to strive to achieve academically. Thus, being “cool” isn’t going to hold students back.
Class sizes at public schools can be out of control, thanks to cost-cutting measures and swelling student populations. It’s very difficult for teachers to give one-on-one attention and all too easy for individuals to get lost in the crowd. A private school will generally have smaller class sizes so students have a better chance to excel.
If you have a child that’s highly motivated to attend a particular university, they may not be able to afford an educational program of study that isn’t focused on learning. Let’s talk about how our private school programs can help you child prepare for college.
Many private schools use Harkness tables in the classroom. Harkness tables are oval in shape and designed to encourage class participation and discussion. The tables are of sufficient size to accommodate the teacher and students, so everyone can look directly at whomever is speaking.
If your child is lost in a crowd at their current school, private school might offer you a better solution. They offer smaller class sizes, and that means more personalized attention to your child’s needs.
A great way to instill a love of reading in your kids is to show them how much you enjoy reading. Tell them about how much you loved story time as a kid.
In the private school setting, parents generally have more of a say in what they want out of their child’s education, versus in a public school setting. Also, students get a more personalized education, with a smaller student-to-teacher ratio.
Avoid the word "if" as much as possible since it suggests that your child has a choice. Saying, “If you put your activity away, we can go to the park,” suggests that your child may not clean up. Instead, say, “When you put your activity away,” to clearly state the expectation.
According to a report from the National Center For Education Statistics, 80% of parents who send their children to private schools are happy with the academic standards. Excellent teachers and smaller classroom sizes ensure high standards.
We recognize how difficult it can be for many students to attempt learning a new language when they’re also dealing with the new pressures that come with high school. That’s why our private middle school offers language studies for students.
Did you know that all that time spent playing on the playground does so much more than simply help preschoolers burn energy? All that running, jumping, and climbing helps children develop gross motor skills that they’ll need throughout their lives.
We love Show and Tell 💘 😊😃

Private education is something that once was reserved for the richest of our society. Today, though, many schools offer scholarship opportunities so that all kids can benefit from their programs. Why not check into the possibilities?
Did you know that your preschooler thinks and sees the world quite differently than you as an adult do? In terms of cognitive development, preschoolers do not yet completely understand cause and effect, and believe everyone sees the world as they see it.

A great achievement for PPMA!
We started with this amazing school when Noam was 18 months. From potty trainning with Mrs JoJo to reading and writing with Mrs. Seema.
When Noam graduated on summer 2019, we decided to let him try the Acceleration test of Plano ISD snd move to First grade.
Noam passed the test and skipped Kindergarten.
We were affraid at first and thought maybe he is too young, but then we got a letter from PISD for Pace Program...then we knew we did the right choice.
