Northville Montessori Center 5

Northville Montessori Center is the second Montessori school our family has been blessed to attend. The school leaders are very much in touch with the needs of each child on every level. We spent a few years in the public school system and had to return to Montessori as the environment, curriculum rigor and life skills development were severely lacking. The power of the Montessori Method to draw out a child's desire to learn is unmatched. The small school environment is also beneficial in our modern world. There is a community at NMC that supports each other and I attribute that to the way in which Ms. Lynn and Mr. Keith lead with heart. Our family recommends that you visit NMC and learn more about Montessori.

Thank you to Mr. Keith for your leadership and skill in the classroom. Thank you to Ms. Lynn for the vision to create this school so many years ago. Thank you for your persistence and the benefit to society you have both (along with all your staff) have provided and continue to develop.

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

The upper elementary teacher has been very effective at building and sustaining our child's interest in every subject-to me that is a difficult task.

Amount of homework: Just right

NMC encourages families to spend time together so they limit the homework to not hinder this opportunity from taking place on a daily basis.

While "grit" has become a buzz word the need to develop life skills of persistence and a love of learning are critical to success.

Respect is at the core of everything from honesty to how others are treated at NMC and how each child is encouraged to approach their work.

I had two children attend NMC and found the teachers at this school to be some of the finest in the area. They instilled a solid foundation for their higher education; teaching them to be responsible, respectful and giving them a desire to work to the best of their abilities! Every day my children attended this school I felt blessed! These educators genuinely care about their students and their advancements in learning what they need to continue throughout life.

This school has a decent program for younger children but it isn't a good idea to go there for upper elementary or middle school. It does not lay a proper foundation for later. I learned nothing except for history and science when I went there 5 years ago. The programs is very unstructured and it will harm your child if he/she stays for too long
