Love, love, love the school!! The teachers are technical equipped but more important have true passion for their work, their love for the students and tailoring the curriculum to the child's ability so that they are successful. With each success - they are confident, self independent and grow with ability and mind to conquer the next challenge. Teachers guide not challenges the child's intellect but it focuses on social interaction, manners and respect oneself and their surroundings (environment and others). The school was an excellent fit for us!

The passion of these teachers is amazing!! My daughter had just thrived at this school. After getting asked to leave a previous kindergarten program due to "emotional immaturity" I was not sure what direction to turn. The Montessori "whole child" philosophy was a fantastic fit for her, as they taught emotional and social interaction, personal responsibility and accountability, and independent decision making. My daughter's favorite are the cooking and art lessons, and the ability to "be a leader." This school overall is a definite "10"

I absolutely LOVE Arris Montessori Academy conveniently located off Loudoun County Parkway. I''ve have had 3 of my children benefit immensely by attending that has not only impacted academically, but with basic social manners, self confidence and coming together as a family. They have parent education nights which help me understand the classroom, material, and an appreciation for Montessori learning. They have an exceptional staff, love for child and passion for teaching. It's a gem!

Arris Montessori Academy is an excellent school. Our daughter started in the elementary program in first grade last year. She is soaring academically and is benefitting from the small clasroom size. Mrs. Opiola is a great teacher and cares deeply about each of the children in her class. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who thinks their child would thrive in a Montessori environment. This is an amazing school!

My little one started in this school when she was 32 months. Since then, she has been thriving in this environment. This school is a Good fit when it comes to academics, extracurricular activities and nurturing environment. She loves her teachers, her peers and most importantly, has had a steadily rising curve, in most areas of learning. As parents we have always found the teachers to be truly caring, dedicated, and passionate towards their jobs. We believe that the caring environment at school is helping her build her confidence and self-esteem. Every morning she heads to school with such enthusiasm and confidence, as if she knows, she is going to have a great day at school. We are grateful to all the teachers for providing such an enriching and fulfilling environment for my little one. As a parent it is very satisfying to know that even at school, my daughter is amongst those who care about her almost as much as I do. Great school, Great Teachers and awesome staff!!!

Our Son started at Arris last year and he is soaring academically. The teachers are so caring and know their students so well. I am so impressed how closely they monitor his progress and continue to challenge him to reach new heights socially and academically. The ratios are also amazing. His class has a 1 to 6 ration. We will keep him at Arris until he is to old for the program. This is an amazing school.
