School Reviews

Maria Montessori's philosophy of "following the child's lead" and Andover the School of Montessori's approach to education and their ability to guide my child's development by providing developmentally appropriate, individualized curriculum and support, stood out among all of our child's education options. I have seen my child grow and blossom in an environment that promotes and practices peacefulness, respect, mindfulness and compassion in a community that practices collaboration with peers and innovative thinking, as well as peaceful communication and respect for others. I am satisfied with our family's experience and believe that enrolling at the Andover School of Montessori was the right choice for our family in our ever-evolving and dynamic world. At the Andover School of Montessori, I feel that my child is safe and happy, and that my child's education is in the hands of dedicated professionals who truly care about my child and her well-being.
