The Montessori School Reviews

This is a truly special place. My 3 year old twins started in the infant class, then went to Toddler, and began Primary (pre-school) in September 2019. Honestly, as a new mom, I had no idea what kind of expectation I could or should have for early education. The Montessori School shocked me with what I could expect of an "out-of-home" environment - it truly raises the bar. The investment every teacher puts into each child is amazing, the setting is so peaceful, and my kids are thrilled to go to school and do their "work" every day.

The teachers are also highly educated (degrees in education and special certification in Montessori).

I'd encourage every parent to visit and observe a classroom - it's incredible to see such young children being so independent, and the teachers and environment are purpose-built to encourage self-sufficiency and to engage young minds.

We feel so grateful to have found this school! It is such a welcoming, diverse community where our son has thrived in ways we could not have even imagined. Socially he has learned to be an independent, curious, happy kid who is very connected to nature and his surroundings. Intellectually, he has acquired knowledge that surprises us, from math concepts, to the name of all the countries in America and he is only 4 years-old. He loves to bake with his classmates and help around. As parents, there is not a single day that I don't give thanks for being part of this community where we have found many wonderful friends, teachers and staff that we admire and respect and that have partnered with us to help us be the best parents we can be. Coming here is the best decision we have made for our son.
Our three children attend The Montessori School and our more than 5 years of involvement with the school has led us to conclude that this environment is uniquely positioned to prepare our children for success in life from an intellectual, emotional and social perspective. The opportunity for each child to effectively customize his/her daily academic pursuits along with the multi-age demographic of each class that fosters mentor/mentee connections is unique to a Montessori education, which is supported by a group of accomplished and experienced faculty and administrators that all have a deep connection to the Montessori teaching method. Traditional teaching methods are increasingly converging with the Montessori approach and we believe that our children are well positioned to prosper given their immersion in this pedagogy throughout their formative years of development.
