School Reviews

This school is the best ever school we found since we moved from another state. We did visit all the schools in Diamond Bar/ Walnut prior to enrolling our two children. The director was very friendly and the administrator provided the guided tour. The way she described the child''s growth with Montessori method was so easy to understand and we were sorry for loosing our first child''s few years of sensitive period in another school. One thing unique of this school is that all the staff members are happy and caring with great attitude. Another important thing was the school campus is well secured and they have two large playgrounds with large play equipment and a large canopy to protect children from sunburn. None of the other schools had all these in a package. Thanks to great school we found our second home for our children.
