School Reviews

Both of my children attended Woodpark Montessori. They were shy,quiet children. The staff was patient and kind and they soon gained confidence. They learned to write and read, do math problems, and locate many different countries. They learned to get along with others and to always do their best. My son is now in 6th grade and has straight A's. My daughter is in 2nd grade and is already reading above the required level. They are open minded and respect differences. The staff at Woodpark is amazing and truly care about children, their well-being, and their education.
