School Reviews

My child has been here for 3 years, and it has been a great learning environment. This is a traditional Montessori learning environment, that encourages kids to develop a lifelong love of learning. The classroom is quiet and calm, giving kids the best environment to learn I have come across as a parent. No overcrowding, lots of playtime, and help kids begin navigating friendships and conflicts successfully. Having opted for the private Kindergarten, we hate to leave and wish they would add more grade levels.
