It is a privilege to work at Sun Grove Montessori School where the focus is on each individual. I feel fortunate to work in a school that values life long learning and emphasizes independence, leadership and academic skills. We hear again and again how well prepared our graduates are for the various environments they enter. A Montessori education is preparation for life and I would encourage anyone to tour and find out more about our school.
Sun Grove Montessori School is a great preparation for life. My daughter attended through 8th grade and has made an excellent transition to High School. She was a little nervous going into a much larger environment, but she was very well prepared. Her father and I see her thriving socially, emotionally and academically in her new environment and we feel that her years at Sun Grove Montessori School were a great preparation for this transition and her continuing journey into adult life.
My son's school is phenomenal. They are the epitome of the Montessori philosophy in every way. To top it all of it is a smaller school that allows the benefit of continuing the principles through eighth grade. They also communicate everything you possibly need to know about your child on a regular basis. I am so glad I have found this Montesorri home for my son. I am not disappointed and you won't be either.
Send your kids here!! I recommend it without reservation!! Both of my children have attended SunGrove since they were 4 months old. My daughter is currently in upper elementary, my son attends another private elementary school. He was very well prepared for his transition to a 'traditional' classroom and thrives in school.
We love love love SunGrove! I have two kids there for the past 7 years! We love that our kids love going to school everyday! Their outside classrooms and practical skills learning is among our favorites, gardening, cleaning, cooking, healthy eating guidelines, fantastic staff( more like a family feel), empowering/independent/ critical thinking, teaching style are just a few more reasons we love SunGrove!
I had three of my children attend Sun Grove. At first they were thriving and being well prepared for the world beyond Sun Grove. Recently, they are changes taking place that I do not feel prepare our children for what they need to be successful. For a public school education, their standards are adequate. For a private school education, their standards are unacceptable and not worth the cost.
What a joy! an incredible learning environment second to none ! fantastic support system.. Teachers who pour their hearts and souls into their work.. You must pay a visit !.. observe the Primary and Elementary children at work .. observe ..You will be in awe !! You will wish you had gone there too ! and I have heard that same from so many parents. This school has given our daughter such a solid educational foundation , and believe me every day it shows . You will not be disappointed . Our daughter attended from the Primary through to the Elementary . To see her develop into an independent thinker , there is simply much too much to say, you must see for yourself ! ..This is such an amazing school and brilliiant learning environment . from lower elementary and now they have a Middle School . what could be better !! Absolutely a gem ! The best education that my daughter could have had and we wish we were still there , are so truly grateful to have been a part of it and miss it so much ! Experience the joy , spend a few mins to observe them !
The Montessori Method is awesome. Sun Grove is certainly a glistening jewel in the Montessori crown! Our son was there for eight years and am thankful for that experience in our lives.
I wish I could attend Sungrove! My daughter gets the care and attention she deserves, plus the structure, discipline and tools she needs to blossom into independence. I have learned a lot from the school as well, and it has deepend my relationship with my daughter.
I've had my daugher (7) and my son (4) in SunGrove Montessori, since the time they were 2.5 and 6 months old respectively. There are so many great things about SGMS: The methodology (one on one teaching, according to Montessori methods),; wonderful teachers who treat the children almost as if they were their own, yet with strong discipline; very healthy lunch policy; and others. However, the most amazing thing, is the environment, in which children work on their own, without making noise, while the teacher gives lessons to the other children, on a one on one basis. In SGMS, truly, no child is left behind. The one on one methodology assures that every child fulfills at a minimum, the standard curriculum, which means that by end of First Grade, every child will be 1) reading proficiently, 2) writing in cursive, and 3) doing complex additions. Highly recommend it.
We should have known this was not a good school when they spoke poorly of other children on our first visit. They are very judgmental and they do not engage children. Every time we picked up our child the children were not learning, they were all just wondering . The people who work there do not seem particularly bright and they are very unpleasant while taking the children out of the car. Overall, not a loving caring environment. The also charge an arm and a leg and then do fundraisers every month to bleed you for more.
My children have been attending this school since they were 3 and it is by far the best school! They are now in Middle School ! This school not only has excellent academics but also teaches how to function in the real world! You will not be disappointed by sending your children here at any age!
This is the best school that I have ever visited. The Montessori approach is very conducive to independent learning and love of school.
Sungrove is for a certain type of learner. Children that do not learn independently should not attend. My son has gone there for many years and we have to put him in another school because he doesn't have the built in want to learn jean! Some kids need to be pushed to learn and this is not the school to push to do ANYTHING!
Both our sons have been attending Sun Grove for over 4 years and continue to excel both academically and emotionally. We owe it all to the amazing teachers and staff at Sun Grove.
My son attends Sungrove and he BEGS to go to school on the weekends! He enjoys learning and that's the most important thing to us....education. My husband and I really love the school, not only because they foster independant learning, but because they do so in a caring, natural way. The school also makes a point to include families in every event they have. We wanted to send our son to a Montessori school and this one is the BEST! I say that, because the school goes up to Middle school 'grades', we were amazed by the work that was being generated by the older students, and how peaceful it feels to be there. The alternatives in our area did not have the option of continuing Montessori past the ages of 6 or 7 and we wanted to continue persuing a Montessori approach. We love Sungrove WORTH EVERY PENNY-AGREED!
An absolutelyy amazing school! caring teachers ..A total 'family environment where parents, teachers and students ,thrive in easy comfortable constant communication. Total open door policy . The administrator is the best. You and your children will be very happy here. They will blossom into responsible kids always wanting to strive for more, in such a nuturing way. I cannot say enough wonderful things. My husband and i cried after having to transfer due to jobs,, so did they ..,,We will miss them so much..Our daughter misses them still....You will be lucky to have your kids attend this school. Worth every penny !
