This school is the heart and essence of Montessori. My daughter has been part of this amazing community for the last 7 years and my son just started in early childhood. For my 4th grader, Her love of learning, confidence in the world, and her respect of self, others and the environment around her are only a few of the amazing gifts she has received. She is still in love with learning and challenging her self daily. For my son, he is loving his class, his teachers and making new friends. He is quickly learning how to be part of a community and his love of learning is growing. He is well cared for and the teachers continuously watch out his well being. The teachers are connected, tuned in and always watching out for the best interest of each student. From day one I have felt nothing but gratitude and appreciation for what the school, staff and leadership provide. Academically she is excelling, and their approach of educating the "whole child" has allowed her access to a well rounded education. The school is also working to build a thriving parent community including a Parent Advocacy Group, out of school meet ups and parents night out. I feel a true sense of community being built and friendships being formed. Overall, I know this is a learning campus that exceeds the qualifications of their American Montessori Society accreditation status.

Whole Earth Montessori school offers the exclusivity of a smaller school, along with a respect for nature and excellence in education. Weekly music and art, regular outdoor activities and occasional field trips are part of their planned school year. While sustaining an excellent Montessori curriculum, talented teachers go above and beyond in dedication to their students and skill, helping each student become the best each individual can be! This is the healthiest school I have ever experienced!
