Our son has been at Newton Montessori for 3 years now - our daughter just started this fall - and it is fantastic! As a teacher myself (at a public school), I am constantly impressed by the dedication of the staff and the quality of my kids' experience here. Academics are top notch, but without the constant pressure of many "high performing" public schools in this area. The Montessori approach is amazing for the little ones (our daughter is 2), but also truly benefits kids all the way through elementary. Newton Montessori gives our son incredible support, while also encouraging individual responsibility and accountability. The kids here are doing academic work that is WAY above grade level compared with any of the "high performing" public school districts (our son is in 2nd grade and doing multiplication with products into the ten-million place.) Also, the leadership at this school is solid. We have friends in suburban school districts where principles seem to cycle through schools at an alarming rate! At Newton Montessori, the administration and leadership is consistent and always has the kids' best interests at heart. The parent community is amazingly diverse, welcoming, and inclusive. We've found the other parents here to be down-to-earth, friendly, and great to hang out with. This is truly an amazing school!
