My son had been attending DM since October 2016 and we are more than pleased with all the goals he had reached. He used to attend a public preschool where he played all day long, now, in just 7 months he began reading and his math skills improved. He's interested in how to create a family garden to grow up our veggies taking as a model the garden they had been growing at DM. When you walk into the classrooms you are captivated for works that help the children to deal with life skills as cooking, polishing, sewing buttons, or even how to mop and swept. All the teachers and assistants know all the children and help them know how important they are, they really create an atmosphere of loving and caring. All the children learn, and are willing always, to help other friends. There's no words to thank enough Ms. Deepali, Ms. Maria and Ms. Tina, they are wonderful not just as teachers. They learn the nature of each children, as unique, to maximize their development, departing from integrity, compassion and respect. I personally had seen Ms. Paula on the lovely and polite way she treats each one of the students, and their parents, at the school and I couldn't be more amazed, you can really feel the school like home. DM is awesome! Thanks, thanks, many thanks, it is the best place if you want your child to be successful not just as a student, but as a person.

The teachers are just amazing. They have an incredible common sense in how to guide the children to be not just learners, but good people.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree

There's no homework, just as the most developed and effective school systems in the world, The "homework" is done at school, so the children can come to the house and be real and active members of the family.

The first time I toured DM I fell in love with the place. The school wonderful accreditation, great teachers but the place just felt like the right for our children to go to. Fast forward one year and we could not be happier! We love, love, love Paula and her hands on approach and the teachers. They truly understand children and how to instil a love of learning. Love Dynamite Montessori and the staff.

My children continues to thrive in Dynamite Montessori School. They started in primary and are now in elementary. They have become motivated self-directed learners and are constantly pursuing an interest (knowledge or skill) on their own, just because. This is more evident with my oldest who is about to complete his 2nd three- year cycle at DMS. My other child is at the beginning of his 2nd cycle and is blossoming the way my oldest did. They love their teachers and knows all the other teachers and staff. I know they feel safe and respected. Ms Aparna/Ms. Thania’s classroom is not homework, worksheets and tests driven (still, my oldest did really well on his recent Cog AT and Stanford Tests). There are plenty of hands-on materials, researches, projects and public presentations. Students are trained to solve problems and resolve conflicts. Diversity and acceptance are promoted with the multi-cultural holiday celebrations. Spanish immersion is whole day. Plenty of specials: pets/animals, student gardens, recorder/piano/dance, tennis/soccer/archery, technology class, cooking lessons, arts/crafts, hiking, field trips, science fair, etc. Did I mention free unstructured playtime is provided & highly encouraged? I highly recommend Dynamite Montessori School if you are looking for a whole-child school. If your child is about to graduate in Kindergarten, do look into the elementary program. My oldest insisted in joining elementary back when he was in K and we are glad we listened. Warning: your little autodidacts may become very busy even after school, not exactly with homework but with their own pursuits.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree

The students are not bombarded with homework assignments. They are encouraged to complete their school work during school hours as much as possible (even math drills and spelling practice). Research trips are also done during school hours. There's of room for other activities after school, especially free play.
