MHMS is the best investment to make in your child's education. We relocated here from Alabama and needed to find a montessori school rather quickly. From the moment we stepped foot in the door and met with Stephen Putnam, the director we were sold. Stephen, Caren, and the whole teaching staff have a genuine interest in every child which is very refreshing. Academics is strong,the tuition is very reasonable in comparision to many other schools, and the staff is very accommodating to your individual needs. They have truly been a huge blessing to our family and I would highly recommend their school to anyone.

MHMS is amazing. The individual attention to each child's learning style combine with such an over all respectful approach is what we love most about the school. Each child is seen as an important contributor to the class room. The academic programs are true to the Montessori method, allowing each child to tap their greatest potential.

Meeting House is a very unique school. They take the best of Montessori, and add to that, fundamentally sound values, a good academic program and fantastic all around development. Their administrators and teachers really know what they are doing and day after day our daughter gives us pleasant surprises with something new she learnt - academic or non-academic. Their attention to detail and a very caring atmosphere is just a frosting on the cake. Overall, it is an extremely well thought out program that flows with your child. Their principal, Stephen Putnam really has a very lofty goal - that of providing a fantastic montessori education at a tuition thats affordable to the middle class. Overall A+ for a fantastic education and environment for a very reasonable tuition.

In our never-ending search for the perfedct fit for our child, we became intested in the Montessori approach to education. It is the perfect learning envorinment for children pre-school up to high school. Studetns are learning at their own pace and given materials and opportunities to explore beyond the scope of a traditional classroom setting. Our family is extremely pleased to have found the envorinment most condusive to what learning should be. We are also part of a community of parents who are involved and participaitng in their childrens educational experiences. We highly reccomend the Montessori education given here.

A truly wonderful school, and Braintree's best kept secret! Professional, caring staff and involved parents gives this school a true sense of community. It says a lot that most families who send one child, send them all! This was our first experience with Montessori, and it has been 100% positive.

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.
