I have had the pleasure of being a parent at this wonderful school. Every single teacher and assistant teacher has blessed my children with knowledge and love. I would highly recommend this school. If you are lucky enough try to get Mrs. Zafar. She teaches the infant classroom. I can't believe how much she cares about each and every baby. She is so patient, loving and helps them develop amongst all their milestones. My pediatrician always asked what I was doing because she was always impressed. Truly it was this teacher. She was my husbands favorite staff member over the years!! My mother in law didn't believe in schooling an infant until she met Mrs.Zafar. I also like special performances they bring to the school. It allows the children to have fun and enjoyable experiences in house. Recommended to the fullest!!

My husband and I struggled a lot to find a school that met all of our needs. Schoolhouse, not only met, but exceeded our expectations on so many levels. My daughter is entering her 1st grade year, we are blessed to have an affordable elementary, Montessori option. The web cameras allow us a transparent view of what goes on throughout the day. Both of my children are happy and engaged. The staff are amazing! Everyone from the office staff, to the teachers have been receptive to our suggestions and questions. They are all friendly and take the time to really get to know our children. I often get special notes and phone calls home informing me of the little accomplishes though out the week. The building is clean and inviting and the program is challenging, yet not overwhelming. We could not be happier!

My husband and I feel so blessed that our children attend SMA Canton. We have 2 children currently at this school. The fact that they both look forward to going to school each morning, love their teachers, and ask to participate in after school activities 3 days a week shows just how much our kids love this school. The educational standards are excellent. My kids come home every afternoon and are so excited to tell me about what they've learned! My husband and I find the program is very challenging but not overwhelming. The teachers are kind, supportive and very down-to-earth. It has been my experience that any problems that may come up with students are dealt with right away and in a supportive, non-judgmental manner. The entire staff genuinely cares about the kids, and we are grateful for them.

We tried the public schools, but were disappointed on many levels. Schoolhouse Montessori makes sure the students are comfortable with mainstream education like taking timed tests or exceeding core curriculum standards. The Montessori method allows kids to learn at their own pace with hands-on experiential learning so that they truly visualize and understand math and language fundamentals. They exceed in teaching personal responsibility, encouraging deeper comprehension and students'' ability to discuss materials, problem solving, and creative thinking, all within a respectful peaceful environment. I can see what my kids are doing any time of the day with web cams in every room. My kids are consistently busy working, engaged, challenged, and happy. There is new leadership in the past couple years and we appreciate their friendliness and a genuine interest in parent feedback. We visited and observed classes in a number of different schools and are very happy with this school.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
