Through this approach, each child masters essential personal, social, and academic skills.

If you are seeking a small classroom with a classic Montessori approach, this is a good fit for you. Facilities are modest, but teachers are excellent. Science and math are particularly well taught. Two field trips per academic year.Aftercare is adequate. only suggestion would be that the school might add some activities to its Aftercare program. All in all, an excellent school and recommend it highly.

This school is fantastic! Our daughter attended Early Primary and Primary here, and then went to public school for kindergarten. We were so unimpressed with the public school system, we sent her back for elementary school this year. We feel good knowing that she's in a challenging, caring environment, where she's not a number, and where the teachers truly care about her. All the teachers are great - every single one of them. I highly recommend this school.
