The Montessori Graduate

Montessori graduates come from around the world, from every cultural background, and from every social stratum. The families of The Post Oak School’s student body represent more than 50 nations—a microcosm of the global community they’ll one day inherit and be responsible for. And although Montessori students still account for a small percentage of U.S. grads, they’re wielding ever-growing influence in ever-increasing numbers.

Many Montessori graduates are household names: Jeff Bezos, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Will Wright, Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Julia Child, to name just a few. A disproportionately large number of these graduates are innovators, explorers, iconoclasts. The list includes Nobel laureates, world leaders, successful entrepreneurs and ordinary people—all living life with the gifts of self-awareness and intrinsic motivation that are the legacy of every Montessori student.

Our graduates go on to college prepared to move from there into fields as diverse as business, science, technology, music, teaching, film making, engineering, acting, medicine, government service, law, and scholarship.
