I cannot give enough positive feedback for MCHY. This school has made such a positive impact in both my children's lives, both academically and in their character. I have never met a group of teachers more committed to working with students to help them succeed, no matter what the challenge. The individualized education of each student is like no other school I have ever seen.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this school! They provide truly personalized education for our son that takes into account his strengths and weaknesses, as well as his special interests. Independence, love of learning, respect, and community values are incorporated into every day at Montessori. We had never even heard of Montessori schools prior to our son reaching school age (he is now 11), but we knew that a traditional classroom education was not going to work well for him (extremely bright, but ADHD and mild autism). I'm so thankful that we found this school - it provides everything that our son needs to thrive and grow as a person. He loves going to school each morning and was overjoyed to hear that he will be able to continue there longer as they expand their current program to include older students.
