My son is able to read and do simple maths. He also developed great cognitive skills which lead him to do very well in NNAT test. These all are possible because of American Montessori.

To all the teachers at American Montessori,Thank you so much for teaching, training, caring for my daughters. American Montessori was the first line of education for the rest of their lives and they will forever benefit from all that you have done for them. They loved coming to your school. One of my daughters had a hard time adjusting to preschool but you made it so easy and comfortable for her. Now she loves going to Kindergarten. All of the staff was great but special thanks to MS.Kelly for helping my daughter get through pre-Kindergarten. MS.Zuleka was an excellent teacher. You have all given my daughters such a great start in life. Thank you for giving my daughters a great start for successful life. Ratha

American Montessori was a great experience for us, our children learned so much from Miss Sandy and Miss Zulekha. They were definitely grade levels ahead when they went to public school. It is great to see a school that cares so much for the children and provides them with so many opportunities to succeed. Definitely recommend this school to anyone looking to give their children tools for success.

This is a wonderful school to send your children to. They do a great job of preparing your child for the next steps in life. My daughter was reading at 2nd grade level when she was in the kindergarten program here.

This hub page lists over three dozen articles dealing with issues in high school such as academics and discipline.
Seemingly never-ending school shootings prompted me to find out whether private schools were safer than public schools. Some answers and opinions on the matter here.
