School Reviews

The school is what every parent wants for their child. The building and grounds are lovely. The staff is upbeat and kind. The classrooms are full of light and space. With emphasis on community, nature and nurture, my children have thrived in such a setting. I had children who became anxious and sad at public schools. Montessori has revived their spirit. Patient guiding in the classroom, hour outside recess every day, gardening, cooking, community, this school sets the example what all schools should aim for.
