My family is starting its 5th year at MdTL and the school has become family. Each of the teachers that my children have had has been so incredibly versed in Montessori's principles and they truly create the most beautiful prepared environment for the children to grow in. We love that our kids are confident, unafraid to dig deep for answers, and have strong connections to wonderful leaders. We plan to keep both kids here through the 6th grade.

My family is in our 8th year at this school and we can not say enough great things about MdTL. The teachers, staff and administration have definitely made a positive impact on our children. My children take the social grace and courtesy with them where ever they go. I am frequently approached at restaurants and complemented on their behavior. I also love that my kids are not afraid to ask questions. Montessori has definitely sparked the inquisitive part of them. They are frequently the first to raise their hands when on a tour. My children truly love to learn.
