School Reviews

My son and daughter have both been attending McKenzie Montessori since September 2011. We absolutely adore the school and wouldn't even dream of sending our kiddos anywhere else. The teachers are both consistent in their expectations and very kind. My kiddos are learning so much and also having a great time. My son has in the past had some behavior issues at our previous school but has had no problems here. The teachers have been able to really work with him on an individual level and he is just thriving there.
