School Reviews

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.
