GMA has been the best decision we've made for our kids. Our oldest started at age 2 and is currently in her 3rd year in Elementary. Our son is also there, age 3. Our daughter reads at a 5th grade level and she's not even 8 years old. They both LOVE school. It is apparent each and every day that they are learning and their minds are growing. What they do there is tremendous! I wish every child had the opportunity to learn and be nurtured like the kids at GMA. What a world that would be!!

Our oldest started at Global when she was three. She's 8 now and in the Elementary program. Our youngest just started this fall. We are so pleased with the school. The Montessori philosophy of education means that our girls are learning how to be learners - to acquire & synthesize information, not just memorizing facts. The teachers are great. Our daughters are excited about learning & loves school. The parent community is also great. We love Global!

As my daughter puts it, "I think it's great!" We have only been in the Elementary program, but there are also programs for the younger kids. Simply put, we love the school. Our kid is learning so much, and I'm impressed by how well she understands. She's not just repeating facts or memorizing terms. She understands the context, and she can apply what she knows. Ms Brandy is wonderful; the kids love her. The school is growing. We have a lower elementary (grades 1-3) right now, and plans are progressing for an upper elementary (grades 4-6) next year. This is a great time to join this school!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
