Lakes Area Montessori has the most hardworking and resourceful staff who guide their students to excel in the world. As an alumnus, I strongly believe that my education would not have been the same without receiving one from Lakes Area Montessori, which has contributed significantly to my success in my higher education. I would recommend Lakes Area Montessori to any parent who seeks a firm academic foundation for their child in a caring, welcoming, and self-paced environment.

LAMC has an amazing staff who always look out for their students and want them to reach their full potential. I truly believe a lot of the lessons and principles taught at LAMC translated into my academic success throughout my years of upper education. I would highly recommend LAMC to anyone who is looking for a challenging yet nurturing environment.

Lakes has amazing staff who are very professional, friendly, and caring. My child loved going to school everyday and learned so much. The class environment is calming, yet productive and children are seen working and learning every day. We love being part of the Lakes Area Montessori Family.
