Famous People Who Attended Montessori: Sean “P Diddy” Combs


Continuing on our foray into the interesting, successful people who were influenced by their Montessori education, today we feature multi-Grammy award-winning musician, rap artist, and CEO of Bad Boy Records, Sean “P Diddy” Combs, who credits his Montessori education with his drive for success: “I feel like I was nurtured into wanting to be somebody special.”


Though Sean “P Diddy” Combs rarely talks about his Montessori roots, he attended Mount Vernon Montessori School when he was just two years old, shortly after his father died. “The Montessori educational approach might be the surest route to joining the creative elite, which are so overrepresented by the school’s alumni that one might suspect a Montessori Mafia,” writes The Wall Street Journal, which names Combs as part of this talented group of individuals. We think it’s amazing to discover the wide range of success stories from Montessori-education people!
