The Montessori American School is the best investment you will ever make for your child. The children learn in a loving, nurturing environment led by an amazing director and dedicated teachers that enable them to learn in a stress free environment. In addition to to the Montessori materials there are extra classes that can help your child develop. There are yoga, Spanish, music and my personal favorite, art. My daughter was exposed to artwork starting from the cave paintings all the way through the impressionists. Imagine going to an art museum and your child knowing about the artist, their works and their style. My daughter was a student at this wonderful school for 31/2 years. Now in first grade she is thriving academically far exceeding the standards for an entering first grader. Her teacher gave her the tools to succeed and the self confidence to be an inquisitive learner. If they had a first grade she would still be there!! I recommend this school to any parent who is looking for an exceptional place for their child to be challenged, nurtured and overall be a happy child. Thank you Montessori American!!!! Fall 2011

The teaching is second to none! Teachers are caring and committed to their students. This is truly a Montessori school and follows the principles and theories very closely. My only 'complaint' is that there are not many opportunities for parents to get to know each other and participate in school activities (no holiday performances, etc). However, the growth I've seen in my son's learning and development makes it well worth it!

A great learning environment for my kindergartener! Because of the direction my daughter received from her teachers, she is now an advanced learner. The spanish program is wonderful as well.
