Montessori Center School (MCS) administers the TerraNova test to all students starting in the third year of Lower Elementary (3rd grade equivalent). As a Montessori school, we firmly believe that a quality education is too rich and multifaceted to be captured by an annual test score. We use the results of this test as an additional indicator of student progress and school performance. We do not teach to the test and continue to adhere to the Montessori curriculum.
The graphs below show the overall test results for the school as a whole and also by class. We believe our school's record shows that the Montessori Method continues to provide children with an excellent educational foundation in a warm and supportive environment.
