We are very happy with this school and highly recommend it to everyone, as we have done to friends and acquaintances with small children.
Our daughter finished Pre-K last year with Mrs. Averil as her teacher. We are of the belief that values should be taught at home and reinforced at school. Mrs. Averil was a true partner in doing this. She has over 25 years of teaching experience within the Montessori system. She is a teacher in the real sense of the word and has a passion for her calling.
The result is visible in our child's development. Our family and friends were astonished how far our 5 year old had progressed in reading, writing, math, the number of educational songs she knew, reciting the 50 states, planets, oceans and every president in sequence etc. etc
We will always be thankful to the school and specifically to Mrs. Averil. These early years is where a foundation is built, on which continuos learning can be built.
Proud parents of Timea!
This a a great school. Everyone is very warm and friendly. I always feel weocome at the school. Ms. Rosi always welcomes me when I go to the school. Many of the teachers and principal are always friendly I only had a problem with the speech lady and went to talk to Ms Jean. She listened to my concerns, and she took care of my concern. Her door is always open. I'm not sure why but there is now a new speech lady this year. I'm happy. My daughter is very happy at the school adnd always excited to go to school.
It is our 7th year in school with 2 kids there. Excellent! Our oldest boy got 5 on facts every year from 3erd grade. We open the doors to lot of kids from differents schools last year and they were so behind in comparation with our children but with hard work of our teachers, staff and also the old students who help the new ones they get really better. So proud of MAEE . We maybe are not grade A but what our children learn there don't have price. Compassion, team work, respect, hard work, value, safetly. Never will take my kids out from there. And to the person saying we don't have PE or fine art, you never being there for sure .
This school is overcrowded and chaotic. There is no fine arts or P.E. Not a lot of learning going on. If your child is in this school you should ask to spend the day with your son or daughter auditing the class situation. I do not recommend this school.
This is a gem in my neighborhood. I am not a big fan of overcrowded public schools because not only do teachers tend to group teach (not focusing on the individual and distinct learning needs and styles of the students), there is too much security issues involved. With MAEE, my son's progress is evident and I am at peace knowing that my son is in a safe environment. I will be enrolling my daughter there in fall and I am looking forward to years of fruitful partnership with MAEE teachers and administrators. Thank you very much, especially to Ms. Averil, Ms. Lucy, Ms. Christie, Ms. Dorothy, Ms. Rosi.
