I cannot express in words, how amazing this school is. The school runs an authentic and nurturing Montessori program from PreK-5, which is where the children learn to love to learn, and then it turned into the most advanced and rigorous middle school prep school in Miami. We have parents from all over the world and they always say that this is the best school their child has ever attended. Even on the international stage. We are SO very grateful to be a part of this school community and family.

We are so grateful to have found Alexander Montessori. So often, our daughter comes home from school happy and eager to share about her day. We credit this to the teacher's genuine care and the individualized attention they give to her. She's in first grade, and her reading and math skills are at a second-grade level. We've seen NO bullying or peer pressure. The school's attention to health and cleanliness is also invaluable. At her previous school, our family was always battling sickness. Since enrolling her at Alexander Montessori, we've had no sick days. Moving our daughter to Alexander was the BEST decision we made.

I was aware of Alexander's excellent reputation well before our son began attending this wonderful school. I am happy to say that the reality lived up to and even surpassed my expectations! What makes Alexander special is that it is a *true* Montessori experience and adheres to the philosophies outlined by Maria Montessori. Here the children are loved and respected by their teachers, guided yet not coerced. Students learn to love learning, because that's what happens when they're treated this way! It also should be mentioned how well the school is run by the administration and their teachers. There is a true "how can we help?" attitude among everyone you meet on campus. This school is run by problem-solvers of the highest order, and it serves to make both the student and parent experience pleasant and seamless. There are a TON of extracurricular activities offered during school as well as in after-school programs. Here again, you will find that these are led by top-notch professionals offering a fun and engaging curriculum Overall, I believe Alexander Montessori to be the very best educational experience for young children in our area!
