We have found MSN to be a total game-changer in the education of our children. At the previous private school they attended, they were not challenged or allowed to learn at their own pace. The skillful Montessori teachers are able to respond to each child`s individual needs, respecting their differences, and making space for them to learn at their own pace. They cultivate engaged learners, who are active participants in their own education, even in elementary school. The extra curriculars are very good, and the community is warm and welcoming. We could not be happier!

MSN is an exceptional school for toddlers all the way through Middle School. Our family is so happy here and have experienced the program from Kindergarten through 6th grade so far. The opportunities for each of our children to grow and learn at their own pace has been a key aspect for our family. In our local public school, our kids were bored and underchallenged and unhappy. Now they look forward to school and learning and embrace the challenges presented to them in such creative ways. The school has an integrated social justice curriculum and is an inclusive and welcoming community. A Montessori education instills children with the skills to think for themselves, problem solve, make decisions and self lead. MSN facilitates all of this through it`s incredible teachers and staff. That`s why we are here. We couldn`t be happier with MSN.
