My daughter attended AIMS for three years. She loved it! The school has great teachers and a learning methods that excel in all areas. She has a strong understanding of math and spelling. I believe this is due to the spesific teachings of the Monetssori way. She is a fantastic student and eager to learn. I believe this is due to her experience at the Amelia Island Montessori School.

When we had our first tour I was amazed at how quiet the classrooms are. These children are learning and asking questions. My daughter started and this is her first year. She was struggling in public school. Now she is excited to go to school. She comes home and does her homework without any problems. The teachers are wonderful. My daughter has an caring interest in her fellow classmates. Everyone at her school wants these children to succeed. I am very satisfied with our decision to enroll our daughter.

As a parent of two children at AIMS and after one full year of education there, I can say this school is by far the best school I have had the pleasure of having my children attend. The teachers are amazing, the classrooms are warm and inviting, and the knowledge and life skills the children obtain is priceless. I will be sending my children here as long as possible. The Montessori method has proven to be a successful way to help my children become independent thinkers with a deep caring for others and the world around them. As a bonus, the other parents are involved and supportive as well.

This school is unlike any other in the area. Students learn to truly love learning, how to think, reason, and resolve conflicts. There is a great, supportive family atmosphere. I didn't know much about the Montessori method before I enrolled my son, but I am amazed at how well the students progress and how much they love coming to school. By the way, they also do great on standardized tests!

It's a great method of learning, small and intimate with individual attention. There is great oppertunity for students to move ahead at their own pace

This school produces amazingly well-prepared, confident, mature and well-mannered students. It's an impressive program. Renee Crane, the new Head of School, is providing great leadership for the teachers and staff.

This is an encellent program. Many children are preforming above standard. P.E. twice a week, music, art, spanish and french. Children are allowed to excell at ther own pace. Allowing a student to move ahead even if another student requires a little more time on a subject. This school did have some growing pains but have resolved them and are moving ahead. Over all, this is the best school for a child to grow and have a joy of learning.

This is an excellent program; however the school definetly has its problems. The problems lie with some of the teachers and the overall structure of the school and its board. I beleive it is a over priced program for the level of instruction (or encouragement to move on). There is a new director now; this opens room for improvement. Again, it is over priced for the level of instruction!

This is an amazing school. The Montessori program allows children to learn at their own pace and ability with care and guidence to motivate each student on an individual basis. Children learn from concrete materials throughout the program. This particular school offers music, art, foreign language, and physical education every week! Majority of the children are performing above grade level and are exposed to geography, science, math, language, reading and also life skills, such as, manners, good eating habits, cleaning up after oneself and the list goes on. Montessori focuses on guiding children to become self motivated and self directed children giving them the tools they need to be independant, intelligent and hard-working individuals.
