Connecticut High School Forges Ahead in Education



I know that Folett's gets a new supply of textbooks
almost every day, but why do you guys keep coming
back day after day when you graduated 30 years ago?

GREENWICH, Conn. (JP) - An
educational revolution is under
way at the Whitby School in this
Fairfield County community, yet
it is a revolution that so far in-
volves only nine pupils.
These nine high school students
are the first in their age group in
the United States to be taught
under the Montessori system.
Named after Maria Montessori,
the Italian educator who devised
the system, the method empha-
sizes free physical activity and in-
formal, individual instruction.
Whitby is a private, coeduca-
tional school administered by
Roman Catholic laymen. It has
used the Montessori method since
it started in 1958 with 18 pupils.
There are 200 pupils at the school
now, all but the nine high school
students enrolled in what is equi-
valent to the elementary level.
The curriculum at Whitby is
similar to those of other college
praparatory schools. What is new
is the subtle yet strong emphasis
upon the student's experience
level-and honest respect for each
pupil's natural pa'ce of working.
The attitude at Whitby is that
the focus of education must al-
ways be on the individual, must

shift from the teacher to the
learner, and from the teaching
process to the learning process.
The Montessori method leaves
pupils more or less on their own,
although under the guidance of
teachers who prepare the educa-
tional environment and function
as authority.
At Whitby, the high school
pupil works with a one-month
"contract" outlined by the teach-
er, telling what the pupil is ex-
pected to acomplish in a variety
of subjects.
It is up to the pupil to work
things out for himself. He can
neglect chemistry, for example,
for a few weeks to concentrate on
another subject. But he is expect-
ed to finish what has been out-
lined for him in chemistry by the
end of the month.
The study of literature has its
"required reading" list as in other
high schools, but the system is
One of the high-schoolers at
Whitby, going through the library
shelves, picked out a novel by
Graham Greene, liked it and then
read everything he could find by
that author.
"He got on a Graham Greene

kick, and we let him do that," then get him going on another." pils will go basically to labora- for elements, for example."
