My daughter has done the whole model, she started at 3 and is now in kindergarten. She loves it and learns so much. She started reading by 4.5 and has an amazing amount of knowledge. She loves school! Ms. Silo is the BEST BEST BEST teacher! I am so lucky we got her, she is just perfect and has a great teaching style.

I could not have been more impressed with the education my daughter received at MMS when she was 4 - 5 yrs old. She began reading in her own at 5 and now at 6 is reading childrens chapter books with little to no difficulty. She is now in first grade in another school district and is at the top of her class. Most importantly, she loves to learn. I attribute her success to MMS and their philosophy of instilling the 'love of learning' to the children which carries through even after they leave. Kudos to Ms Pearson and the staff at MMS !

Awesome school in many respects. Head of schools has a drive to promote the best educational experience she can for the children. The teachers are enthusiastic and constantly working to promote an environment that is both nurturing, respectful to all , and a curriculum that is exciting and instills a drive to learn more. The school was very well established as a preK and K, and now with their first year lower elementary program ongoing, it feels like the sky is the limit with what the kids are learning in the lower elementary program. None of that boiler plate, dry, and spoon fed learning here. The teachers are excited, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and the kids respond to that are put their best efforts into learning all they can. My child and her classmates adore their teacher and are very interested in learning everything she has to teach them.

The perfect fit for my daughter, she loves it and I love it. The teachers and staff are great. Well worth the money to give our daughter the right start in her 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.
