My daughter came to TMA from a public school which was the only school she attended until the transfer. I just couldn't allow her to fall through the cracks because she was barely able to do the work by herself. Her anxiety was escalating and her love of learning was evaporating right before my eyes. I had to do something. I tried to speak with her teacher and principal. The teacher just said speak with the principal if there is an issue. I did his response was to put the blame on my child. That was the last straw! I did lots of research and scheduled to check out TMA along with a couple other private schools in the area. I was blown away on my tour. She started and not only did they help her get back on track with her core skills but she is able to read a book by herself and have critical thinking, time management with confidence in every step. She not only knows it's what she needs to get done, but has the desire to do it. TMA has changed her life for the better and it is absolutely 100 percent the best choice I could make for her future. Thank you to all the amazing staff and TMA community.

I have 3 kids currently at TMA and they love their teachers and friends. It's an ideal environment because it's both academically challenging and warm and nurturing. My kids learn a ton and are constantly challenged but they don't have to deal with the stress of testing and piles of homework at other "good" schools.

Our child has grown into a confident, independent person who is respectful and compassionate. Montessori fosters independence while balancing it with community spirit. Kids learn to manage their time as well as work in teams. Montessori is a diverse environment that fosters critical thinking and social awareness. Kids are taught to respect themselves and the community at large.

We have been part of this wonderful school for over 10 years. One of our kids has already graduated and currently excelling in high school. The other is still at the school and also doing extremely well. Both children are also socially well-adjusted. We credit the individualized education and nurturing environment at the TMA for their successes. Truly, we love this school, its teachers, and the wonderful administration.

We have a son who graduated from TMA and two daughters enrolled in the elementary program. Our children have thrived here. My son has scored highly on academic tests for high school and will be in the honors program- he is well-prepared. There are two teachers in every room, a challenging curriculum individually tailored to each child, and children work at their own pace. The community is composed of excellent, dedicated teachers (some have been here over twenty years,) and involved families- there are many fun events where we can gather and get to know each other. International Festival highlights our diverse community and is one of the best events of the year. The school has an award winning design, including a full gymnasium with stage. My kids have loved being part of the sports programs. We highly recommend TMA.

We have a four year old in the preschool and a 2 year old in the toddler program. Our experience has been exceptional. The children absolutely love going to school, they enjoy their teachers, the work they do and they are very proud of what they learn. We find the facilities to be very clean and child friendly, in every aspect, down to the small size toilets in their preschool building. Their teachers are all friendly, respectful and experienced. There is a real sense of community within the school, and families are given many opportunities to be involved with the school. We highly recommend this school and are proud to be a part of the TMA family!
