Auburn Montessori is a phenomenal school! From the moment you step foot on campus, you become aware that this is like no other school in town. The grounds are clean with inviting flowers, there is an outside picnic area covered in vines where the children have lunch, and their playground is spectacular. As you walk in the classrooms, you will be amazed at the organization and tidiness of everything. All of the teachers truly love their profession and it shows. They are all so amazing with the children and you know that they are in great hands while you are away. The curriculum is out of this world. I am amazed on a daily basis by the things that my children tell me that they've learned or things that I see them come home with. This is definitely a preschool and not a daycare. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the school. When I decided to put my daughter in preschool I checked out every one in town. Nothing was even close to comparable. From the grounds, to the staff, and the curriculum, my expectations have been far surpassed. I'm sure that if you come check them out you will be as impressed as I was and still am.

I have two children currently enrolled in the preschool programs here. Both children started in the Prep class with Teacher Donna and then moved on to the Children's House program with Teacher Mary. I cannot recommend these two teachers in particular and this school highly enough. The staff are so dedicated, and the Montessori education is such a perfect fit for my children. I never worry about the safety of my children when they are in school. The parent involvement this year is great. This is definitely a school worth looking into when you are looking for preschool programs. (I have heard good things about the elementary programs but have not experienced them yet myself.)

ADMS is a tremendous school with amazing staff - many whom attended the school as kids, and have taught at this school for years- a rich culture, and a great parent community. Both of my sons (ages 5 & 7) attend here, and the 29-year school history is evident. They have a great after-school program as well, many classroom animals, and a wealth of excellent enrichment activities. My older son is a bit of a daydreamer, and thanks to the individual attention each child at ADMS gets, we are effectively impacting this where as at another school, it may be overlooked. Can't say enough good things about this school. Final and most important vote is that my kids love going to school. Can't beat that!

I think this is one of the best options for gifted students who are working above grade level.

My daughter loves her school. She started at 2 and is now 3 1/2. Loves her teachers and has excelled in her education at an early age.

ADMS is a wonderful montessori school. My children love going to school every day, and have amazed me with the wealth of knowledge they've gained while attending. The atmosphere is so inviting and the small community feel is very refreshing.

This school has a very nice community quality amongst the children. They really seem to enjoy the teachers and the atmosphere at the school. The before and after school extended program is excellent -- my kids beg me to stay every day!

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.
