School Reviews

This school is the perfect school for our children. My oldest is a high spirited boy who has always struggle to sit still; Montessori education has been the ideal solution to his need to investigate, play and experiment. Our daughter is also inquisitive and loves being outside, she too loves being at Abintra. If you want to foster thoughtful independence Abintra Montessori should be at the top of your list for your child''s education. We initially enrolled as Early Childhood/Preschool and planned to transfer at kindergarten, but after learning more about Montessori education as compared to traditional schooling our plans have changed to continue through Middle School.
