Though Wythe Academy is not an authentic Montessori school, we respect and incorporate Maria Montessori’s philosophies about children and learning. We use Montessori elements such as mixed-age studios, choices within limits, large blocks of work time, learning through discovery, and freedom of movement in the studio to help create a rich and stimulating environment.
Our ratio can be from 10:2 to 20:2.

Guides prepare the environment and equip learners to become helpful members of the community. While they offer choices and ask questions whenever developmentally appropriate, they are engaging in a Socratic discussion. In keeping with Montessori philosophy, Guides observe and follow the child.
Guides try to avoid answering questions. Utilizing the Socratic method, they ask questions or offer choices.
Learners work towards mastery in their Learning to Learn (core skills), Learning to Do (Quests projects), and Learning to Be (character development) goals. While the Elementary Studio will utilize a badge system in which learners progress from level to level through peer accountability, the Spark Studio uses Transparent Classroom, Quest, and Exhibitions to measure academic growth. To measure academic achievement, each session ends with a public Exhibition to showcase the Studio’s learning experiences to parents and the community. Parents and the community are encouraged to challenge the learners with questions after the presentation.
