dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the rationale parents have for placing their children in a Montessori School above all other means of education. A 26-question survey was administered utilizing quantitative and qualitative items that addressed placement reasons and perceptions of the quality of education children should receive. There are approximately 80 parents at The Innovative Montessori School located in Houston, out of which 36 responded. The results indicate that parents choose Montessori education due to the classroom structure and the curriculum, known as the Montessori Method. It was also noted the reason for continuing Montessori was because their children enjoyed learning and had positive self-perceptions of the learning environment present in a Montessori classroom.
