School Reviews

Our daughter?''s experience in the Hollis Montessori Upper School was transformative. It?''s interesting to look back on the child who entered the program compared to the young woman who graduated. During her years in the Upper School, she learned how to organize herself to be successful, the value of friendships, a love and respect for nature and the outdoors, how to be a willing and able contributor, and how to embrace her thinking mind. She left the adolescent program as a capable, confident, compassionate independent thinker and doer, with an integrated breadth and depth of knowledge and curiosity about the world. Though we wondered about how she would fare in a large high school, her transition went very smoothly and she was extremely well prepared.

A genuine Montessori school which leverages the innate drive to learn. Our children went from thinking (public) school was boring to wishing school continued through the summer. Our 1st grader is writing creative stories and talking about the origins of geometry while our 6th grader is learning about global economics and solving for the cube root of 9 digit numbers without a calculator.

The teachers are amazing at this school - caring, warm, accessible, open to feedback, and great communicators to both children and parents. My son loves his teachers and is learning an amazing amount while loving every minute. The administration is top notch and encourages a community of parents and children - the families feel it and attendance at student and family events is high. The new campus is gorgeous, thoughtful, and a wonderful gift to the children attending this school, as well as the community. The new building is geothermal, LEED certified, and green in too many ways to list. We love this school!
