    Montessori School of Denver Reviews

    This is such a fantastic school and community for both children and parents! My daughter just finished her first year (Toddler) and I cannot speak highly enough of the teachers, assistants, main office, campus and all the events to ensure the entire family is involved and aware of all that your child is experiencing and learning. My daughter has thrived In becoming her own person and an independent toddler. Within 2.5 weeks of being in school she was working on putting her socks on (as a 2.5 year old) and she accomplished it not long after that, she always asked to help around the house with chores, her speech and awareness of others increased considerably. She learned how to respect her environment and peers a lot more and her teacher gave me feedback and tools as to how to better nurture a very high strong toddler. The campus is beautiful and the school is constantly improving it.I can’t wait for her to start Preschool this year!

    MSD is an amazing treasure of a school! Every year I think I will find a school closer to home that doesn't have the tuition and fees, and every year I struggle to find a school that can compete with MSD. The teachers are absolutely incredible and they have gone above and beyond to meet my son where he is and work with him to reach his potential. In some areas, that's "above" grade/age level and in other areas it's "below." Nonetheless, they see him for the individual and person that he is and move forward from there. He is now finishing his third year in lower el and I couldn't be happier with the decision to keep him there for the opportunity to finish the three year cycle with that last year of confidence building and "being the oldest." It's true that having that time to pull it all together makes a world of difference! It's also just the culture of the school- no hallways to walk in quiet lines... when children go somewhere they get there in the open air.
