Do Montessori students take standardized tests?

Montessori schools generally don’t believe in the concept of standardized testing as other schools. However, we do conduct checkpoints at period intervals to track the progress of our children. These checkpoints help in determining the pace of lessons for our children. However, as students reach 6th grade, training in the form of internal standardized exams is given to help students transition into the requirements of board exams for higher grades.
