Latta Elementary, a public Montessori school in rural Latta, South Carolina, takes the spotlight in an article appearing in Edutopia. The author, Nora Fleming, worked with Brooke Culclasure of Furman’s Riley Institute on the piece, which shows how Montessori schools are benefitting large public schools as well as those in the private sector. Culclasure’s study, which was released last year, revealed that public Montessori students in South Carolina outperformed their non-Montessori counterparts on standardized tests and a variety of social and emotional metrics.
