I worked in the primary Montessori education classrooms as a lead teacher for 30yrs, seven of them at PHMA. I would still be there, except I retired and moved out of state this past summer. My experience at PHMA was a positive one. I can easily say that I looked forward to going to work each morning! The friendly staff and sense of community between staff and family members created a warm and relaxed atmosphere. I always felt comfortable enough tobring any challenges or ask for advice to Ms. Christine Varkas, the head of school or her assitant Ms. Carol Mercier. I could count on being heard and getting the support I needed from their expertise and knowledge of Montessori principles. This knowledge along with a love and respect for the child culminated in us making the right choices to serve the children best. PHMA is committed to excellence in education ...nurturing the whole child, body, mind and spirit. .

PHMA is a stable school in the community that always puts children first before anything else. The head of school is an educator of 40 years who knows her stuff. The administration and the lead teachers are all educators, which is one of the reasons that PHMA puts education and child development FIRST!
