Our 4 year old daughter is taking Pre-K in Montessori and we are very satisfied with her progress.

We are on our second son attending pre-school here and we've had a great experience. As others have noted, Miss Hazel does a wonderful job of planning and administering, and she is unfailingly upbeat and pleasant, even when she has good reason not to be. Miss Chi has been the teacher for both our sons and she has been great. We've yet to have the parent-teacher conference for son #3 this year, but the one we had for son #2 (son #1 attended a different pre-school) a few years ago I thought at the time was the most thorough and thoughtful parent-teacher conference we'd had for either of our sons. Too, Ms. Chi has always been available for on-the-spot discussion of my sons' progress. The classroom assistants are good too: patient and solicitous with the children. And there are a lot of them, so you can be sure your little one is getting plenty of attention. There have been a variety of fun activities and field trips to augment the regular school program. I've been recommending this school to parents for a few years now, and I hope my (and the other) positive reviews here can bring it to the attention of a wider audience.

My daughter loves this school. Ms Hazel is very organized and proficient. Pre-school teachers are very warm and loving, at the same time they are working with kids. This school has one of the best extracurricular activities planned. Ms Kunche (Grade 1-2) is one of the best teachers I have known. She worked with my son and he still remembers her after 12 years!!

My kid has been going to Milpitas Montessori from pre-K to 2nd grade. Needless to say, we like the school very much. The teachers are great and the school environment is very cordial and warm. The principal Ms. Hazel is a good administrator and plans things well. All the main teachers are very good. For kids staying after school, the help given for doing homework could be improved. They do good activities though. I am happy with this school.

I really like this school for my son. The Teachers are very nice and patient with the kids. The director is warm and friendly. My son went to a 1 week trial period before we enrolled him. He loved it. We didn't have to deal with separation anxiety.

Milpitas Montessori is a very excellent school. My daughter was there from preschool to Kindergarten. And now my son is in the Kindergarten, he was also there from preschool. You can trust the school and teachers. All the teachers are very loving and kind. They are very experienced and they care about the children. The School staffs are very professional and helpful. The curriculum is very good. They have good facilities and I especially like their big tree shaded playground.I am very happy that I found this one.

Montessori schools have a proven method of teaching to expand your child's interests. Aside from low pupil to teacher ratios, I was glad to that Milpitas Montessori caters to children second grade and under; I feel that this makes the environment safer for my child.

This school is great. I knew as soon as I visited. The other schools we visited felt like the staff was there to babysit. Not here. My son absolutely adores Ms. Chi and Ms. Venny. They are so kind and friendly. They even heat my sons lunch for him every day! Ms Hazel, the director is so organized and detail oriented. She is in constant communication with the parents. We're so glad we found Milpitas Montessori!

I absolutely vouch for the extremely helpful teachers and administrators of this school. My daughter has been going there for 3 years now and is in kindergarten. In between we did make a switch as we moved into a new location, but in no time had to come back to Milpitas Montessori for the tremendous support and quality of education my daughter gets here. We drive 17 miles from home and 6 miles from work to take our daughter here now. Things I love other than the quality of education; - they warm up kids lunch, teachers really bond 1:1 with the child, extra curricular classes, art work, discipline and the respectful families that associate with this school. My daughter does not seem to get bored and I hear her bragging about her teachers all the time. She comes home with something new and exciting to tell us every day. Milpitas Montessori gives that peace of mind that most parents look for in a school. I know my daughter is in good hands and in a few months my son will be ready to join the pre-school class too.

Excellent school with wonderful staff. My son is attending preschool here and he loves it. We're so amazed with his progress. The teachers and staff are very attentive and there are so many different projects to choose from, so that the kids stay interested and motivated to learn. We looked at many different Montessori schools in the area before selecting this one and are so happy with it. The director Hazel is awesome.

My son has been going to Milpitas Montessori School since he was 3 1/2 years school. We absolutely love the way they treat the kids with care and affection. Their teaching methods have been exemplary. There is one-on-one attention to every student. Besides the academics, I see tremendous improvement in my son's social skills.

We are extremely satisfied with Milpitas Montessori. The staff is the best: highly experienced, motivated, energetic and attentive. We enrolled both our daughters with MM (starting at pre-K), and we were more than happy with the results. We are very focused on both our daughter's growth and development (academically & socially), and we found MM to be an ideal place where they can learn, explore and engage in a positive manner with peers and staff. The staff is very caring, and they go the extra mile to ensure all kids are provided the attention and guidance to be well-mannered, well-educated kids. We highly recommend Milpitas Montessori to all parents, especially starting at the pre-K level.

My son has been going to Milpitas montessori for 3 years now (since Pre-K). He absolutely loves it and as a parent I am very happy with the learning. This school is not as expensive as other name brands, but the teaching staff, curriculum, and quality of materials used is at par. My son loved Ms Chi, Mrs Moorman and loves Mrs Kunche. Mrs Kunche is very strict with kids and I think it helps with discipline with boys. On the downside, I wish this school had some musical or sports activities. I think kids need music and sports as well in addition to studies at this age.

It is an excellent school. My kid has studied here for 2 years.. preschool and KG. She has learnt speaking in english well, we are Indians with Hindi spoken at home. Her Maths and reading have developed very well. She can independently work on things, these are skills totally developed in the school. She loves the school and misses it at home too :)

Larry Page and Sergey Brin [founders of Google, Inc.] said their success did not come from Stanford but from Montessori. I am now a believer of that statement. What is unique with Milpitas Montessori School is that they combine strong academics in a nurturing environment. Indeed, I truly think children should be encouraged to improve their cognitive capacities in an environment that encourages personal growth. I highly recommend Milpitas Montessori school. Of course she was pushed to perform in Maths, English, Science but she also learnt practical life, philosophy and surely a good art of living too. My older child still tells me how her teachers were nice and how she could confide her ideas about the world. Even my other daughter [who attended pre-school] speaks fondly of her teachers as they had a short but profound impact on her. I was very sad this school was not offering a 3rd Grade, otherwise my child would have continued with Milpitas Montessori School, along with her younger sister.

I have two girls, both went to Milpitas Montessori from preschool (3) to second grade. To us, the important parts are 1. We trust the school and the teachers -> teachers are kind, caring, experienced. School staffs/policies are flexible and reasonable. 2. Sufficient focus on academics -> to us, schools like Challengers for kids at this age group do more harms than goods. This school is about 1 year ahead of the public school, Regardless, the important thing is they let the kids learn at their own paces and ways, not just trying to cram down as much as possible. 3. Nice environment -> good facilities and play grounds.

My two kids both attended Milpitas Montessory School. We are very satisfied with our experience: teachers are very attentive, kids have great opportunity to learn/play and develop social skills. I have no hesitation recommending this schoold and would keep my kids there beyond 2nd grade if that option was available.

This is an excellent school for your child. All the teachers are very loving and kind. Additionally, the academics are superb. My child was reading Cat in the Hat books in Pre-school and moved on Curious George by kindergarden. The school teaching style with an open classroom set up encourages teamwork. The curriculum is clever and motivates the children to want to learn and be excited about learning. The owners are kind and compassionate. Too bad they only go through 2nd Grade.

My daughter has gone preschool here since she was 3 years old. She is now attending there for kindergarden. She is really enjoying the school. The teachers are wonderful and kind. They teach kids individually according to their own pace. Small class size. I am extremely satisfy with my decision to have my daughter attending this private school.

The teaching staff and standard of education is exceptional at Milpitas Montessori. As an Asian parent this is very important to me. However, as a working parent, it is as important that my children are cared for and kept safe. On my younger son s first day of preschool, nap time had not gone well. I found out later that a teacher had rocked him to sleep. Then there are the little extras. My children always take a home lunch, but there have been many a day, when the teachers have given them an extra piece of fruit, a salad or milk, just because they asked! If you are looking for a reasonably priced, private school with well supervised before and after school care options, a blended Montessori approach at the higher grade levels and a small class size, you should explore what the Milpitas Montessori School has to offer.

My son has been going to Milpitas Montessori since he was 2 years 8 months old, he's now almost 4 years old. He had gone from not wanting to go to school at the beginning, to asking to go to school even on the weekends.:-) The teachers are caring and are serious about teaching. I see great developemnts in my son's logical and creative thinking. I definitely recommend this school.'

My second-grade child is and has been at this school since she was in the preschool. My family moved out of town last year and I debated moving her to another school. But I decided to keep her there and drive the extra distance because of the wonderful teachers and staff. Since she was in preschool, the teachers have always taken special care of her (e.g., consoling her when she cried each morning in preschool). They are also very accomodating, (e.g., offering my child a school lunch if she didn't seem to like the home lunch I made for her). These 'special touches' were not the things I looked for when I was looking for a school, but its these touches that made me decide to stay. It's worth every mile.

I wouldn't recommend this school for younger kids (2-4 yrs old). Too many older kids are mixed with younger kids in the after school daycare hours, and younger kids get hurt easily.

Most of the teachers in this school bring their own kids in. Needless to say, they focus on their own kids most of the time. That is the reason why I pulled my kids out.

My child has been attending the school for almost a year. Nice school overall - I like the respectful approach towards children, letting children set their own pace in learning and individual attention. The fact that school assigns homework is not in accordance with Montessori principles though. Too much push for other paid activities - several picture days a year, lots of classes that we have to pay extra for, etc., Also a personal pet peeve of mine - reciting the Pledge of Allegiance by kids. I believe small kids don;t really understand the meaning behind it and say it 'blindly' which is, in my opinion is kinda disrespectful to the idea.
