School Reviews

I cannot say enough good things about this gem in East Point. This is what I have found at DMA: an authentic AMI-accredited Montessori program, caring and well-trained teachers, a strong director with a gentle heart, enthusiastic learners on each age level, clean classrooms, and a community of families that want to live life together and give support. I have found all of this for me and my two children. My older child is thriving in all academic pursuits- my child is performing way above grade level in every subject and has a personalized education plan (as does every child) so that excitement and progress doesn''t wane. My younger child is much younger and has received the most nurturing care you can imagine- all from a trained Montessori professional that understands infant development like no one else in East Point. This school is an absolute gem and an answer to prayer for our family. Thank you DMA!

My daughter is entering her 4th year at DMA and we love the school, the community feel, and her instructors. The classrooms, communities, are bright and have a great feel. We couldn''t be more pleased with the school. After school dance and tae Kwon do are also offered.
