Danville Montessori has been the most influential part of my education. This school has a community like no other and is such a peaceful learning environment. It creates prepared and independent students who LOVE learning.
DMS is everything school should be. My two grandchildren have progressed so far beyond what one could reasonably expect in public schools that there is simply no comparison. Plus, they love it! Costs are very reasonable for a truly superior educational experience.
If you want to see your children literally blossom, boy or girl, you must join the Danville Montessori classrooms. My 8 year old boy and 6 year old girl know such indepth and relevant teachings. The school connects them to the outdoors fluently within the curriculum. They have been taught multicultural literacy, Yoga, Spanish, art and community connections. Both of my students read above their grade level, which most students do at the school. There is no other choice.
Endorse Danville Montessori School. Endorsements should be a few sentences in length. Please include any comments on:
