School Reviews

As a former employee I am happily biased, but I want to tell you how much I love this school and its staff! It is highly exceptional to find a school with a director who is AMI-Montessori trained to work with not one, but three (!) age groups of children: toddler (18 months to 3 years), primary (3-6), and elementary (6-12). This means that the school culture is infused with a deep understanding of children and this research-supported way of guiding their development. I am forever grateful for the things I learned from head of school, Sarah Fondriest, when I was a new teacher. I am grateful for the colleagues who were experts in their craft, but also kind, engaged, nurturing, and hardworking people. And I am grateful for the children and their families who made the school an engaging and dynamic place to learn and grow. It was a pleasure to work with the children who passed through my class and to be part of this wonderful school! :)
