My twins (4 years) are schooling in Primanti Montessori school for 2 years. They are studying in kindergarten and are very sharp minded. Their general knowledge and vocabulary are excellent. Sometimes I wonder how 4 years old kids can absorb so well. I am very happy and proud to get my children studying in Primanti Montessori school. In each class, their teachers were different but they all are very humble, caring and gentle. They treat kids with great dedication and patience. I highly recommend this school to each parent in California if they want their children to grow with high standard education.

Both of my sons have been enrolled at Primanti Montessori Shool since they were 2 years old. There's so much to say about the great Teachers and staff, but the best thing any parent can do is visit the school and compare. You will see the difference yourself.

My son has been a student at Primanti since November 2011. He has been in the toddler and Primary rooms and I have nothing but great things to say about his experiences. My son has blossomed under the care of his teachers, first Ms. Sharma and now my Ms. V and Ms. Diaz. He is learning addition, writing skills, geography I am amazed on how much he has been able to absorb. His vocabulary is that of a much older child and he has a confidence and self awareness that is remarkable. These teachers really seem to love what they are doing, which shows in the care, kindness and patience that they give to these kids. My son is an only child and can be difficult to direct but they keep him motivated and on task. I appreciate all that they have done and will have him in this school for the coming years.

My older daughter started at Primary here when she was almost 4. Her progress was tremendous. She started reading and writing in about 6 months after. Teachers are loving, experience, and attentive. If I were still living in the neighborhood, for sure I would have kept both of my kids for a long time.
