School Reviews

Central Montessori Academy (CMA) is a wonderful school filled with caring, energetic, creative, and patient teachers. The teachers at all levels are wonderful! My children love their school and I love it as well. I love that my children are developing not only their academic skills but are becoming independent, respectful, and capable individuals. CMA offers Spanish, music, Physical Education, Art, computers, etc. as well as many other unique opportunities. We love CMA!

CMA is a GREAT! school. I would recommend it to everyone. The staff is incredible and it seems as if they are there for only "your" child. It''s a warm and friendly environment and my daughter really excelled in that school. We still go to the events that they have. We just can''t stay away....

Every time I walk in this school, I''m greeted with smiles by both the teachers and students. It just feels like a great place to be. The Upper Elementary teachers have had their own children go through Montessori Middle school and Montessori High School, so they fully understand how to prepare the students for what is to come, and they do it well. Instruction is rigorous and personalized. Classrooms are always open for parents to visit. Just come and watch. It''s easy to see why our kids love it here. Learning happens.
