In our continuing foray into the famous, influential, and amazing people who attended Montessori school as children, today we focus on Beyoncé Knowles. Though she certainly needs no introduction, Beyoncé is one of America’s most beloved singer/songwriters who has sold 100 million records worldwide, won 22 Grammy’s, and has been listed in Time’s 100 most influential people in the world.
Beyoncé, who was born in Houston, Texas, attended St. Mary’s Montessori School, where she also enrolled in dance classes and won a school talent show at age seven. She attended Montessori school until the third grade, and thanks in part to her school valuing arts as well as academics, her thriving career sprouted from the empowering and lifelong love of learning that Montessori education provides. We are beyond proud to call her a part of the extended Montessori community!
