Aster Montessori has been a wonderful place for our son. He has been attending for almost two and a half years! Currently he is doing his kindergarten learning here and loves his "pull out kindergarten" class. We have been very happy with the teachers, staff, and classroom environment! What we love is that the teachers are kind and encourage the children to be kind to one another. What my son loves is the school work, recess, and friends!

I have been working with Aster Montessori for few years and I am impressed with the quality of care school gives to children. Director has very high expectation from staff and it shows off in everything teachers do. School has impressive and attentive staff. The curriculum is based on whole child development and covers social and emotional support along with excellent academic development. My own child went thorough this school and thrived in every way!!

My daughter went to Aster for three years. I am very pleased with her development socially, emotionally and academically. Now at her kinder year in another school, I''ve been told that she is reading at the next grade level. Ms. Aparna is a very kind, patient and sensitive teacher with the kids. The entire staff Ms Maria, Ms Yuri and Ms Mariko are very good teachers as well. I am very happy with the foundation that this school has given my daughter for her all round development.

I have been more than impressed by Aster Montessori and the teachers. My daughter has attended Aster for two years and thrived, both socially and academically. I appreciate the small class size, student to teacher ratio and the diverse activities they are introduced to. I would highly recommend this school to others.

What is a lab school? It's a K-12 school or school with some variation of those grades which is operated by a university or college.
