Wellan Montessori School Reviews

This is our son's third year at Newton Montessori and our daughter began this September. The school is incredible! From the parent community to the quality of the teaching, this school really is the best in the area. Our son is in his second year of Lower Elementary (akin to 2nd grade in a traditional school) and is excelling in all academic areas. He is doing multiplication with products in the ten-millions place, reading at nearly a 5th grade level, and is very interested in science at the moment. The Montessori method is, hands-down, the best educational approach-especially to get kids ready for their experience in the workforce in 10-15 years from now. Our daughter is in the youngest division and she positively loves it. She just turned 3 and every day she gives me a kiss goodbye and then runs into the class (not kidding!) with the teacher and doesn't even look back. This is the best school in the area for sure - for little ones all the way through elementary and middle school.

Our son started in Sept. 2018 at NMS in the lower elementary program, and we could not be happier! The opportunities he has in the classroom to explore academic ideas that excite him along with the way he has grown in his ability to "stick with it" as he works to meet areas that are more challenging for him both stand out to me as subtle, but uniquely strong. Our family feels lucky to have landed here. From the masterful classroom teachers to the engaging specials, we couldn't be happier. Thinking ahead, we are so excited that the school is adding a middle school program; our son will be able to benefit from this great community through 8th grade!
Our daughter is in her 4th year at Newton Montessori School, and we couldn't be happier. NMS provides a natural balance in fostering intellectual curiosity, social and emotional awareness and growth, independence, and collaborative learning. Our daughter's teachers know her exceptionally well, and as such, are able to challenge her in the most personal of ways. We trust the teachers and administration completely; and are so thankful she is in a school that harmoniously teaches to the mind and heart, ensuring that our future is filled with intelligent, thoughtful, and caring humans to lead the next generation.
