My children have attended MANJ from the todder program, through the primary program, and on to the elementary program. The guides (teachers) are engaged and passionate. My children are self-drected and excited about learning - everything from cooking to math to spelling to animal care and gardening (one of the perks of the school being located on a farm!). The music & drama program are awesome as well. Finally, I've found peaceful conflict resolution and nonviolent communication to be emphasized here; which is so beneficial for children - and carries over to behavior at home. Highly recommended - GO FOR A TOUR! When you see the classrooms & grounds you'll understand why my kids are excited at the end of Summer break to come back to school!

Do your research! We were sadly, disappointed by a couple of teachers but also the work, or lack of. We are big fans of the Montessori method however, we didn't find all the "teachers" or "directresses" knew it well enough to create a productive and educational experience. Lots of parents were disappointed, large groups have left over the years.

My children attended this school from the time they were toddlers all the way through elementary, and it has been the best experience. The school does ask for close collaboration with the parents so that the child has consistency between home and school. During our many years of attendance, I have never seen a child (or family) fail, if there was agreement between the school and the parents. I have seen some parents who send their child to this school but then counteract everything which was done or taught by their actions at home. If you are looking for a place where your child is accepted for who they are, challenged to reach their highest potential, become truly caring human beings and be prepared for life, this place is certainly it. I would suggest to come see for yourself and also speak to parents, who's children have successfully finished the program.

While some parents swear by this school, I'd advise 'buyer-beware' based on my preschool child's unhappy experience. The major drawback to this school is the mental and intellectual inflexibility of its director and at least some of its teachers. If the child does not respond well to Montessori methods, their response is that the child has a speech, hearing, or learning disability - rather than that there is something about the educational experience that needs to be changed. Don't just listen to the theory; go see it in action. How many of the children look happy? Is there joy? Do the teachers seem to enjoy the children? After observing, then make your decision.

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.
