Both my children went to The Foundations Montessori. They excel in public schools because of the efforts of the teachers at The Foundations. They are confident and blended easily into the public school system. The staff at The Foundations was always helpful and well versed with The Montessori methods and philosophy. I would highly recommend this school.
