My son went there for the summer program since I wanted him to practice spanish during his school break. He liked it so much that we enrolled him for the academic year. I am amazed about how much he learns weekly, and how his personality and behavior have evolved. He loves going to school, he was already bilingual, but both his english and spanish skills keep growing. I hear him read, count, sing in both languages. As far as teachers and staff, amazingly friendly and aware of the kids needs. I am enrolling my toddler girl soon since they opened a program for 18 months +. The education that the kids receive is worth every penny that the tuition costs. I see it as an investment on kids education in a multilingual world.

This wonderful school is so unique! The teachers truly care about each child and believe in the work they are doing. The compassion and love the teachers put into each childs individual learning shines through these children, you can see this in each of them when you observe and listen to the classroom. The teachers are not only teaching reading, writing, and math, they teach peace, cultural awarness, compassion, problem solving, and how to be a well rounded individual. The experience the teachers have with Montessori education is impressive and they continue to educate themselves as well as their staff and families. I can't say enough about how happy I am I found this school. Montessori and bilingual together, I couldn't ask for a better education for my child.

My 5-year-old son attends here and I am amazed at how quickly he is learning Spanish. His accent is excellent and he loves to read books in Spanish now. He is also excelling rapidly in math, reading and science, and is excited to go to school each day. The teachers are naturals at what they do and the Montessori environment has been wonderful for his confidence, social skills and self-discipline. We are so grateful to have found this school early on, and we look forward to being part of Casa del Ni o as it grows through 6th grade.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
