School Reviews

This school was just the best for my children. From toddler years to the end of 3rd grade -- all the years we could get -- they attended MSGL and loved going to school every day. The teachers addressed not only their academic needs but also social and emotional learning. Read up a little on Montessori method and then go observe some classrooms! We found a supportive community here for our whole family.
