I have two children at this school - - one in primary and one in elementary and I will tell you that it is a great relief for me that I was lucky to find and get into this school. I did a lot of research on Montessori programs and schools in Macomb area and on the web and I learned a lot from this experience. Lucky!! -- because this is the only school in metro Detroit area which is recognized by A.M.I.(Association Montessori Internationale) and Not A.M.S.(American Montessori Society) which some schools are associated with. There is a huge difference --- - and that is why I feel so lucky.

I have two children, one in the primary program and one in the toddler program. Both children are doing wonderfully and are excited for school everyday! I cannot believe how independent they have become since enrollment. The teachers are excellent observers and really know the needs of the children in their care. All of the staff and the Head of School have an unquestionable understanding of child development and have prepared the environment to meet the academic, physical, and social needs of the children in each classroom and outdoors. We will definetely keep our children here for Elementary because this is where our children so obviously feel at home.

Great montessori program. My child has been there for 4 years now and I plan to keep them there through elementary. Like other reivewer said, you must go do an observation at this school before you send your child to another program.

You must visit this school before you enroll anywhere else. I think this school ranks as one of the top Montessori schools in Michigan. They are very true to the Montessori philosophy.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
