Lilima Montessori High opened in January 2017 with a group of 21 students. The school was started to address the need for more high quality high school education. The vision of the Lilima Montessori School is a peaceful world which is attained through our children, where all forms of life are respected creating an inter-dependant global community.
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, has been chosen because it is a
child-centered educational approach based on observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr
Montessori's Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the
world. There has been Montessori teaching in Swaziland for over 30 years and it is presently available from
pre-primary to elementary level (the end of primary school), a high school is the logical next step.
The founder of Amazon, Jeff Bizos, received a Montessori education, as did the two Google founders who credit
Montessori for allowing them to see hidden opportunity - and then turn it into commercial success. "I think it
was part of that training of not following rules and orders, and being self motivated, questioning what's
going on in the world and doing things a little bit differently," Larry Page, CEO, Google.
