If you are looking for a school where the emphasis is on the "whole" child then look no further. Sun Grove Montessori School has not only provided my daughter with important academic lessons, but life lessons that will serve her in the next part of her journey. We love the mixed age groups, the individualized attention and the nurturing of each individuals potential!
