School Reviews

I love this school. My youngest son has attended Montessory Academy of Upland since he was a toddler. I can only say, in his first week at MAU he was able to accomplish what his previous school couldn''t do in 1 year. Today he is in second grade at elementary level and I continue to see him thrive in so many levels. The staff and everyone involved at this school in one simple word, "cares". They have created a positive and learning environment in the classroom as well as outside of it. The feeling of family among students, teachers and parents is like no other. Before choosing MAU, I researched and visited all care centers and schools within 15 miles of our home. The level of one-on-one attention he has here he wouldn''t have anywhere else. And at this critical time on his physical, mental, and emotional development this is most important. I look at my son everyday and I couldn''t be happier with my choice. I don''t think any other school around here compares.
