Celebrity Montessori Students

News and Updates

Our friends at The Post Oak School, one of the oldest Montessori schools in the United States, have a lovely interactive post up on famous Montessori students and advocates.

You can view it here.

For those interested, the list of famous Montessorians include:

  • Serge Brin and Larry Page – Founders of Google.
  • Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.  First Lady.
  • Will Wright – Creator of Sims.
  • Jimmy Wales – Founder of Wikipedia.
  • Jeff Bezos – Founder of Amazon.
  • Beyonce – Singer, performer.
  • Taylor Swift – Singer/songwriter.
  • Yo-Yo Ma – Celloist
  • Helen Keller – Thinker, poet and so much more.
  • Julia Child – Chef.

Of course, the hidden message behind this post, and all posts on ‘famous Montessori students’, is that, despite the attention these people receive, all Montessori students are celebrities.

Future celebrity Montessori students are working, across the world, at this very moment, on one united front: following their own interests, at their own pace. When you do see such an amazing list, and you start to think about how it coincides with Montessori, it presents some terrific questions.
