School Reviews

huntington montessori is a great montessori school that is located at 165 pidgeon hill rd..huntington station ny. this school is academic and offers foreign language, music and movement. art appreciation program, and a physical fitness program. the teachers are seasoned and very experienced and my children really thrived there. they also have an afternoon reading/literacy program which is amazing. i would definitely reccommend this school to parents and the prices are great. compared to other montessori schools in the area.
