Simply the best investment we ever made for our two boys. They attended this school for 3 years. The amazing developement in my children was astounding. The teachers care and love for each and every single child. They turn out wonderful, respectful and highly educated children. The MMS staff have become part of my family and will always be...we are hoping our 3rd child will be attending in the fall...

After spending months visiting local preschools, we are happy that we chose this one. My son entered his 2nd yr. here and has made strides that I didn't expect to see until later years. The academic programs are wonderful; they give children the opportunity to advance as far as they want to in areas that they are interested in and gently encourage other areas. He is adding/subtracting, sounding out words, and while he was once shy, they respectfully let him be himself and slowly he came out of his shell. The art program is amazingly clever - painting under tables to mimic painting the Sistine Chapel, etc. - very creative. Well balanced program. Lots of field trips. Parents need to bring in better snack choices (not reinforced) but that is our only complaint.

My daughter went for 3 years to MMS and my son will be entering his second year in the fall. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The education the children receive is very well-rounded, with exposure to so many subjects that other pre-schools and kindergartens do not teach. The one drawback I find is that the director seems a bit spread thin between MMS and MMA, and could use some administrative assistance.

I value the caring nature of all the teachers and staff there and I am confident my children are receiving a high quality education in academics, self-responsibility, and an awareness of the needs of others and the environment. I am very happy with the content of lessons presented too. My children love learning about continents, cultures, languages, dinosaurs, animals, phonics,( the list of studies goes on and on). The also love their weekly Spanish lessons. My children also enjoy the art and music programs as well as the gymnastic class available. A few words about another review... There are no counselors or clerks at this school, so I find it strange that someone would comment on people who never existed. The comments made also go against any Montessori philosophy, especially the philosophy created at Milford Montessori. Teachers always show a desire to help each child reach his/her potential academically and otherwise.

The environment is far from being rushed as it reflects true Montessori values that teach children how to care for all parts of their environment. The administrator and teachers demonstrate great care and respect for the school and toward each other; it is reflected in the children and how they treat each other. Anyone looking into this school (especially those who may judge it by this webpage) really should visit MMS. I have only good things to say about the experience my child and my family is having at MMS.

My daughter has been going to this school for a year and a half. During that time we have seen great improvement in her academics and also her physical and social skills. In the middle of last year she was struggling with writing and recognizing letters and numbers due to an occular motor delay. Three months later we saw great improvement all around. The best part of Milford Montessori is the teachers. They all care so much about the children and what they are doing - every child is treated as if they were their own child. The education is extremely well rounded with even preschoolers learning about nature, science and history. Our only problem so far has been a slight lack of organization on the part of the principal, but that is due to her dedicating most of her time to teaching. I highly recommend this school.

I'm not satisfied with the results I see in the education my child is recieving...but everything looks so good, I couldn't articulate it. Lot's of great programs, wonderful facilities, but with the exception of one caring counselor, a few teachers and clerks, it seems an indifferent place. Not much cameraderie. I question the quality of the adminisration/teacher relationship. Team spirit filters down. The atmosphere's so rushed, that it seems education becomes a casualty in this environment. As such, it might be excellent preparation for the real world; just not the world we're hoping for on behalf of our kids.

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.
