School Reviews

  • Recommended July 24, 2014 - My son completed his KG in CGMA this year. The program offered by this school was outstanding. My son took his test in Language. The principal was amazed with his language skills. Facility is well maintained. Teachers are very friendly and dedicated. The Director of the school Mrs. Athirai is very committed and respond to our concern/suggestions at once. I would highly recommend any parent to visit CGMA, Plano. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended July 16, 2014 - I am a parent of two children attending in Children''s Garden. My experience with the school is very positive. The academic program is outstanding with special instructions on Language Development, Spelling, Reading and Writing. My older child is now 4 and is very advanced in Math at 2nd grade level. Teachers are very experienced and knowledgeable. The facility is huge, well lighted and spacious. The school was showcased as Model School in International Montessori Conference in Dallas in 2014. - Posted by Parent
