United Nations-Montessori Model (MMUN)
How do 12, 13 and 14 year-old SBMS students successfully maneuver through the maze of the Montessori Model United Nations' experience? First things first. One success leads to another. New York City becomes 'familiar' through preparation and experience.
Do SBMS's three and four year-olds, and five-year olds, learning to choose and select and pursue and maintain their interests while developing skills and abilities, actually prepare them for successes in the Grand Assembly of the United Nations? Really? Yes. Yes, because the SBMS Primary "things" (successes) lead them to Elementary "things" which lead to the academic and other necessary skills and abilities enabling 'teenagers' to prepare for successes at the United Nations. Where else would we prefer these teenagers to succeed?
In fact, SBMS's continued successes in the MMUN program have prompted MMUN organizers to invite SBMS's 9th graders (2016) to attend and participate in next year's MMUN trek to the Galapagos Islands. 2016 Environmental Summit.
Ask around. Wonder, out loud, if any other school, Montessori, or not, has received the invitation. Why would organizers invite a particular school, its particular students? Is it because of the successes of the three and four year olds? You bet!
