One of the most caring and involved environments we have ever had at an elementary level from the teachers to the parents. Coming from out of state, we were thrilled to find such a family friendly school with the academics in place to challenge our daughter. I highly recommend this school!

Loved the Montessori philosophy. Wonderful teachers, great environment, lots of extracurricular activities - art, piano, tumbling, etc. Very flexible administration.

This school has been extremely beneficial for my children. My kindergartner is already reading second grade level books. Montessori teaches a variety of subjects that are ignored in public schools. The teachers are outstanding and the teaching methodology applied is condusive to learning and retention.

This school is excellent. Children learn and understand by practicing what they are learning and reinforce their skill by helping other children learn. The school enrollment is very diverse, including several children from other countries. The children receive a liberal arts education that includes music and art in addition to science, math, reading, writing, social studies, environmentalism and geography. There is a high level of parental involvement. The staff is highly creative, intelligent and thoughtful. My children have excelled in this school.

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.
