My son entered the Yellow Classroom last October after a school switch. He has been welcomed with open arms by his amazing teachers. He loves the other students in his class, and every day he tells me all about the work he did. He's always joyful when I pick him up and eager to go to school in the morning. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, the school director is knowledgable and kind, and the Montessori Method is truly followed here. We are so excited to have found MSOL for our son. He is thriving here.
