Continuing to Close the Gap

Grace Montessori School is proud to report that during the 2021-2022 academic year, we awarded over $135,000 in financial support to aid more than 29 families. The scholarships impact more than 30% of our student body, and we are thrilled to make a difference in so many lives.

Every Grace Montessori student thrives and we pay attention to various measurements that determine program success:

  • Teacher observations: Grace Montessori teachers observe student behavior and track progress. Additionally, teachers keep tabs on child development and achievements in progress reports shared with parents twice a year. 
  • Grades K through five: Reading and listening skills are biannually evaluated through Edwal/Shanker Reading Inventory Sixth Edition.
  • Grades 3+: Basic skills and knowledge achievement are tested and measured through administering the Stanford Standardized Test.

 

This school year, over 70% of students attending with scholarship assistance reach or exceed benchmarks in all areas of the Montessori curriculum, and 90% of kindergartners and elementary students read at or above grade level. In the elementary classroom, students attending on scholarship in grades 3 and above take the Stanford Achievement Test, with 90% receiving scores at or above grade level when compared with students nationwide.

Over the past 16 years alone, we are proud to have awarded over $1 million in financial assistance for more than 450 students of low-income families to attend the toddler, primary, kindergarten, and elementary programs, helping to close this nationwide achievement gap one beautiful student at a time.
