Essential Element Rubric 4.0


Our rubric is based on the Essential Elements of Successful Public Montessori Schools, a document developed in the late 1990s by the major Montessori organizations in the United States to help guide the growth of Montessori public schools. This rubric relies on those fundamental principles to create a set of “look-fors” that can assist schools and school leaders in determining how well their school aligns with the essential elements.
