Phoenix is a 15 on a scale of one to ten! Our family loves the bonds created between student and teacher in each grade. PMA has a warm, loving, caring environment well suited to the independent learner as well as the student who learns in non-traditional ways. Students are treasured as individuals and parents are welcome. PMA truly embraces the Montessori philosophy of educating mind, body and spirit.
