School Reviews

I highly recommend this school! Both of my children started going to Park View Montessori III when they were 18 months old. They've aged out now, and I feel like we're leaving family. Park View's greatest strength is its incredible teaching staff. The lead teachers have many years, if not decades, of experience teaching young children in a Montessori environment. Despite being highly educated and trained, the teachers exhibit endless humility, patience, and care. They truly love every child that comes into their classroom and they see each child as unique, even though they've had so many students over the years. My children learned practical life skills, how to read at a young age, and many other skills and attitudes that are from this school. I'm so grateful for the role that this school played in our family's life!
