I can't adequately express how grateful I am that we found Bergamo Schools. My 9-year-old son has been a part of this amazing education community since he was 18-months-old. He absolutely loves going to school - so much so, he doodles he loves Bergamo on his school work. His reading and math skills are off the charts. I highly recommend Bergamo to any parent who wants a rich and loving learning environment for their child. There is no greater feeling than dropping your child off at school knowing they will be happy, safe and nurtured.
I recently toured and observed this school - my daughter attends Montessori Country Day at Riverlake which is the preschool feeder for the Bergamo elementary school. Have you ever been in a Montessori elementary school? It certainly is different from my experience of school - and I actually wish I could have gone to a school like this. The children are free to choose their work throughout the morning and afternoon within a framework provided by the teacher - so if a child wants to work on a history project first thing in the morning, her can! How cool is that! The children were very productive and actually seemed to enjoy learning. It is expensive, but I think it will be worth it for my daughter,
