Differences Between Montesssori & Traditional Schools For Preschool & Kindergarten:
The goal of both Montessori and traditional preschools is the same, to provide learning experiences for the child. The biggest differences lie in the kind of learning experiences each school provides, and the methods they use to accomplish this goal. Montessori educators believe these are important differences. These school experiences help shape how a child learns, their work habits and their future attitudes toward themselves and the world around them. The differences are largely a matter of emphasis.

Mid-Peninsula High School is located in Menlo Park in San Mateo County in Central California, serving the Fremont, San Jose, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Oakland and Half Moon Bay communities. We are characterized as a "community for learning" that maximizes each student's opportunities for success.

At Mid-Peninsula, we recognize that education is not one-size-fits-all. Because some of the most creative and promising young people have learning styles that are individual and unique—and are not being met in traditional secondary schools—we signify a different approach to learning—one that is personalized according to each student's learning style, special needs and unique potential.

Mid-Peninsula High School is deeply committed to this highly personal form of education. Not only does our strong academic program prepare students for college, but Mid-Peninsula's progressive "whole-child" educational approach offers them the opportunities and skills to advance themselves—intellectually, socially, emotionally and ethically.
