A classroom without desks or blackboards? It may sound unusual, but it’s actually been around for awhile. It’s known as the Montessori Method, and it’s been around for 100 years. Greenville Montessori School is one of a handful of such schools in Eastern Carolina. The desks and blackboards are replaced with array of hands-on learning tools to help the students develop skills. The students work at their own pace and work together in some cases.
