CMS students are significantly better in values like Empathy, Social Responsibility, Problem Solving, Regularity and Punctuality and Obedience. Many things can be inferred from these significant differences. City Montessori School (CMS) is successful in imbibing these soft skills into the students through the various events that are organized during the year. The student are far above average in empathy and social responsibility, the reason for this may be attributed to the philosophy of CMS "School must be a Lighthouse of Society and provide meaningful guidance and direction to students, parents and society." The environment of good discipline in the school is able to teach the students the value of time and so they rank high in regularity and punctuality. Obedience also seems to be an outcome of the values inculcated through various exercises in the school.
The study also recorded that CMS students are high in the following values in comparison to the other students of the other schools : (1) Loyalty, (2) Responsibility, (3) Brotherhood, (4) Dutifulness, (5) Repentance, (6) Courtesy, (7) Truthfulness, (8) Cleanliness, (9) Respect, (10) Obedience, (11) Honesty, (12) Concern for Environment, (13) Dignity of Labour, (14) Justice This study was conducted by Mr Nitin Agarwal (BTech, ITT, Delhi, 2002) and by Mr Tarun Raj (IIT, Kanpur, 1999) who were pursuing a degree in management from the world famous Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Lucknow. As a compulsory component of their work towards the degree, they had to present an innovative project. The research and quality of this project went a long way in the grade they would obtain from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM). Their project was titled ‘Incorporation of Moral Values and Emotional Intelligence in the Present Education System.’
