I was reluctant to put my children in private school and even more reluctant to put them in a Montessori school because of bad experiences I''ve had in the past. My husband had his heart set on it, though, so I agreed to give it a year. The social and academic changes in my children were unmistakable. Four years later, we''ve started our fourth child at this school and wouldn't want them to go anywhere else!

Serving students for 35 years, Eton School offers a unique and developmentally appropriate education. Montessori meets the needs and challenges all students including gifted children because it follows the child allowing for the child's education grow in depth and width rather than just adding busy work. The smaller classes at all levels allows the teachers time to get to know, teach, observe, and evaluate all children as individuals rather than as a number in a class or grade book. All students completing 8th grade at Eton School have been accepted into the school of their choice after graduation.
