My 4-year-old goes here. Very good school. They focus a lot of things that will encourage students to focus on whatever they are doing. The teachers are all nice. Given that my son still manages to be scared of the main teacher, that means they are still firm with how they treat the kids. I consider this a very good thing. They encourage the students to learn at their own rate. Due to moves, this is the third school my son has been to, and the one I like the most. We plan to move soon and hope we do not move too far from the school so he can finish his preschooling here.

Both my children attend Arlington Montessori School and I can only say wonderful things about it. The teachers are great, very warm and kind. I love the fact that they actually get to know the children REALLY well, they talk to them, they pay attention to what they say and they treat them with kindness and love. At an early age, they learn how to take care of some of their needs, to be self sufficient. The curriculum is also very impressive and the children enjoy and thrive working in the environment that the school has. Everything is simple, everything is very well organized, everything has its own designated space, and this rubs off on the children and they learn to be neat, organized and focused. I am very happy we chose this school, and I definitely recommend this school to any parent.

We had our older son with the school for 4 years and younger son with them for over 1 year (we moved to a different town after that). The teachers are very caring and take each kid to their hearts. Academic curriculums strictly follow Montessori way, which encourages kids to learn and stimulates their curiosity on the nature. My kids came out way ahead in math and reading. The program also focuses on basic etiquette, self-discipline and character building.Above all, the teachers are caring, loving and attentive to all kids. We feel as part of a family, and even now my kids still love to go back to re-visit their friends and teachers there.
