Me and my wife were looking around for a good school for my daughter (3year 6 mths) in May 2019, when we realized that the traditional pre-school was not the best for her.My daughter has a speech delay, is very shy and nervous, and does not mingle with other peers (or at least takes her own time to mingle). She started speech-therapy April 2019, and the therapist also suggested Montessori schooling as the likely best option. After lots of research, my wife narrowed down to Castle Montessori. My daughter started attending Castle from Aug 2019. We did mention all these issues on the application and to the Director (Connie Wells) and teachers.Within weeks, the difference the school was making to my daughter was apparent. She started reading words, talking/singing a lot at home, and making friends at school. She loves running into class. Her teacher has discovered how my daughter learns best, and is developing a learning plan based on her needs. My daughter respects her teachers. She was potty trained in 2 weeks, just as her teacher said she would. The school is very near to our house, has very a clean facility, several amenities, good teachers and staff, is very good about communicating notices, and is very competitively priced.We are extremely happy with our choice of Castle for our daughter, and no doubt will be sending our son here too in a couple of years. We would strongly recommend everyone to take a good look and try it.Dawn Leia Ventre & Rahul N. Pupala Ph.D.

As first-time parents, my wife and I were nervous putting our daughter in someone else`s care. That`s my little girl. But she LOVES going to Castle Montessori and reaches for her teachers when we drop her off. The education and activities they do for the kids is great! Plus, she`s started sleeping better at night. Worth it.

I had my daughter for three years at Castle Montessori before going to kindergarten, and she was not only ready, but able to excel! It is indeed a great school!

We presently have our youngest child attending this school. The experience we had with the younger one was so outstanding, we had to enroll the youngest one in the same school. They really do care about the children, infrastructure is impeccable (probably the best in the area) and the Head of School is ever warm with good listening ears and would do anything to help.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
