My son went to LFMS many years ago when it went through 3rd grade. He was fortunate enough to have the same teacher all 3 years, When he transfered out he was placed a year ahead in another distinguished privated school in the area. That had never happened at that school before. He went on to the "GATE" and other accelerated programs, as did many of his LFMS classmates. To this day, my son swears that his academic success lies in his foundations at LFMS.

My two daughters attended LFMS for three years. The skills they learned at this young age have more then prepared them to start 1st grade. Both have tested at the 2nd grade level fo reading and writting. The teachers are caring and really work with each child to help them learn. While this is a montessori school, the class is structured and the kids are empowered to excel. The program includes a great summer program with activities, spring concerts and art shows.

My son went here for preschool and is now in a k-1st class. I love it, he loves it, and he's learning so much. Cooking, computer lab, dance, woodshop, sign language, and of course reading and math! Very $ but feel so comfortable with him here.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
