Wonderful, nurturing environment, true to the Montessori philosophy, where a child can develop with awareness of the world, in a respectful and pleasant setting.

We are moving to Long Grove just to have our daughters in this school. The teaching quality is spectacular, at a very high intellectual level but yet appropriate for each child. The focus on the environment, global social issues, and a holistic approach to life has been outstanding. One school visit will show how engaged and involved the children are in their own learning. All the staff demonstrate the utmost respect and care for each individual child. There are not many extracurricular activities offered (although art, music, and Spanish are part of the curriculum), but the rest of the school experience more than makes up for that. We'd highly recommend the school to any parents looking for a rich Montessori environment for their children.

My children have attended the Monetssori School of Long Grove since they were 12 months old, beginning with the Parent-Infant Class. MSLG offers parents a unique pre-school experience where children are allowed to be self-reliant and self-disciplined. They are able to choose work they are interested in learning and develop a true love for school. The teachers are all incredibly generous to the children. They are the best there is today. My child is excelling in many areas of study. It is a great place to start your child's education.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
