This is a traditional Montessori school for kids from preschool through middle school. Our son has been here since he was 2 and has been thriving. He would be in 1st grade in a traditional private school and in 2nd grade in an NYC public school. Yet, he's finishing up 3rd grade math, science and reading, which we attribute to the efforts of the teachers and principal. The school emphasizes independence and community, in true Montessori spirit. The kids take frequent field trips near and far - no parents allowed - and learn more than one could imagine. This isn't a fancy Manhattan place, but if you value the fundamentals and effort from teachers and kids (think homework almost every day), this is the place for yours.
