This school is excellent in every way. We don't want to move away from the area for fear that we won't find another school that can educate our son as well as Montessori Private Academy of Rockford.

The review posted February 14, 2013. If the school administration posts reviews, read this again as there are four (4) obvious errors. Am sure the person meant staff & not stuffs; "been there since ''his 3yrs old''"; in 1st grade know vs. now & "and for sure we will be back." Hopefully this well meaning parent is not helping with assignment sent home.
