Since its inception, MMS has been reimagining education for the changing world we live in. Now more than ever, we understand how quickly our world can shift, and the value of a curriculum that teaches students to be resilient and adaptable. We embrace rigorous study and look beyond the traditional measures of student achievement to develop and apply a holistic measure of student excellence, fulfilment and potential. We believe education should focus on preparing our children for the exciting future that lies ahead of them, equipping them with the skills and knowledge they will need to thrive in a fast-changing world.
As you digest the information that follows, I invite you to remember that although our academic results are evidence of what hard work, dedication and perseverance can achieve, these results don’t measure the whole individual. They don’t measure the characteristics of each individual that make them unique and valuable contributors to our society. I believe passionately that every individual has deep potential and ability and that it is the role of every member of the Melbourne Montessori community to discover or unlock the talents, passions, skills and interests of each child. We work together to embrace a culture of joy and ‘Unlimited Education.’
We are optimistic about the futures of these young people as they embark on their next chapter of life, so full of potential and unlimited possibilities.
Whether they chose to complete the Montessori Careers Program (MCP) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, each of our 2021 Year 12 graduates are embarking on an exciting new chapter.
