I can't thank the school and teachers enough for all their years of caring for my children. Couldn't have even dreamed up a school that would serve the needs of my two very different children as they have done. It's hard to put into words how much Maria Montessori has contributed to the happiness of our family. My children have gotten the best education in San Diego by attending Maria Montessori. My daughter is now in a public high school and because of the comprehensive education she received at Maria Montessori she has finished her first year with a 4.0.

We love the school. The student:teacher ratio is lower than any other school we looked at and the academic programs are very strong. Music and language are part of the curriculum and our kids loving going every day.
