School Reviews

3 months ago
We have been very pleased with our experience at Old School Montessori. Our children attended OSM from 1st through 6th grades (our younger child is finishing 6th this year), and they have been excited to come to school every day. The teachers and staff provide a caring, supportive environment that allows students to learn at their own pace and promotes kindness and respect toward others. Our children have been challenged academically, learned to manage their time as they worked to complete assignments, and also developed great public speaking skills. Our children also loved programs such as Nature''s Classroom, band, and Spanish. Our older child transitioned from OSM to middle school and high school without any problems, academically or socially. At the end of 8th grade, she was named the top academic student in her class of 380 students. She was asked to be the student speaker at the 8th grade graduation ceremony and spoke confidently to an audience of more than 1,000 people. We credit OSM and its dedicated teachers with fostering a love of learning in our children and helping them become more caring individuals. We highly recommend OSM to all families.

As both a grandparent of students now attending OSM and an educator with 39 years of experience in the field of education, I am beyond thrilled that my grandchildren are attending Old School Montessori. Their open door policy is refreshing and I am able to stop in frequently to observe my grandchildren in their classrooms, both primary and elementary. I have also spoken to parents of former students who are now in college and they have nothing but positive things to say about their children''s experiences at OSM. I have read all of the other reviews on this site and hope that all prospective families will make their own judgment about OSM. I highly recommend this school.
