We've had our daughter in this school over 2 1/2 years and don't want to go anywhere else. She has thrived in the Montessori educational environment and we have seen tremendous intellectual, emotion, and social growth since she has attended. We noticed a difference in language skills (in both languages) after a week or two of being there when she started!

We've seen the school go through ups and downs with the economy and even politics, but its core has remained strong, and Staff are committed to providing top education. They do require a uniform, but that is actually a benefit because it helps create a sense of dignity and minimizes distractions in the classroom.

I don't know how it compares to some other Montessori schools (some are closed, not true Montessori, or too far), but from the ones we've seen, it's a great fit for us. When looking at other schools, be sure to check on the accreditation of the school and the teachers, and read up on Montessori education before you go. The method has been applied all over the world and around since the turn of the 20th Century. It's not "traditional" or "conventional" education, but that's a good thing. The more you know and understand, the more it makes sense. Ask yourself: Do you really want to trust your child to one of the worst ranked public school systems in the US with 30-40:1 teacher/student ratio?

It's a great school and we hope to keep her there as long as possible!

After studying Montessori, you begin to learn that the inner motivation that a child gains from the philosophy that s/he learns offers him/her a great advantage in life. Perhaps it is difficult to see this at first, and I know it certainly has been for some parents. However, by simply taking the time and energy to attend the school functions (they offer philosophy nights to encourage parent understanding of this practice) parents will indubitably see the merit in all that a Montessori education (and specifically this one) provides its students.

This is a beautiful system for anyone who cares about giving their child more than just academics in school. These kids are respectful, peaceful, and kind. I love watching them work. It isn't like anything you've ever seen before. I would recommend this school to anyone, but especially students with behavior issues. The teachers are firm but kind and instead of screaming at the children, they speak to them with respect, so that the kids can learn respect. It's a wonderful school.

If you are looking for a school that will teach your children in a way that you have never experienced yourself and probably won't understand, this is the school for you. The Montessori methods of teaching create a self-guided educational experience for your children. If your child feels like sitting in a corner all day playing with a hammer, he will. If he feels like learning about the alphabet, he can do that, too. Although the actual methodology behind the way they teach phonics and math is interesting, you just have to hope your kids will express a desire to hear about it. It was just a little too out there for my tastes. The instructors came across a bit flaky, though very dedicated to the Montessorian way. The school is also very expensive and requires uniforms for all ages because "if a child wears an Incredible Hulk t-shirt, he will want to act like the Incredible Hulk". I don't agree. My son wears Nemo pajamas to bed, and he can't swim! Also, the school teaches up to twelve year olds. After that, you have to figure out how to get your child back to earth and traditional schooling expectations.
