As a parent I carefully research everything that is going to be an influence on my child, and of course that includes finding the right Middle School. Even though the decision was ultimately going to come down to my son's preference, I wanted to make sure that he was given the opportunity to make his choice from among excellent options. When my son chose Princeton Montessori, we were sure that he was destined for rigorous academics that would challenge his intellect, pique his curiosity, and build his sense of community. We were not wrong. The Princeton Montessori faculty and staff have demonstrated that they are professionals who care deeply about each student. They understand the unique impact that a powerful, positive, uplifting education can have on the future of their students. But a school is more than just the teachers and staff. When the student body holds the qualities of community, empathy, shared responsibility, and respect equal to the goal of academic excellence, you know your child is in the right place. We are thrilled that we have become a part of the PMonts community!
