School Reviews

5  4/7/2017
Tall Oaks is a great school! I know my children are in the best learning environment with small class sizes, and a strong curriculum to provide them with a love of learning. The teachers are certified in Montessori education and are passionate about what they do, every day. The personalized lessons offered for each of my children's current interests ensure that they are always challenged where they are at. Now that we have experience in the Elementary program as well, we have an even greater appreciation for the deep love for the process of discovery, hands-on practicing and self-regulated learning that was introduced starting at 1.5 years old. They all love it here, what more can be said?
