Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
The kids look out for each other. Great community! Bullies would not be tolerated by the other kids or the school, but the more important thing is that the school creates confident kids and confident kids are much less likely to bully others.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Three kids. Three different types of learners. All have had an amazing experience.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Same people who created the school run the school. They are phenomenal.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
I've met many of the graduates from the school and am always impressed.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
They are incredible, caring people. And they let the kids direct their own learning, which gives the kids the opportunity to learn in a way that is effective for them. We love the teachers.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Very little homework. It's an elementary school. I don't believe young kids should be sent home with much homework.

Like adults, children learn when they are interested in what they are learning. And the only way to be sure that they are interested in what they are learning is to give them some choice over how and when they learn new things. This is how the Montessori School of Syracuse (MSS) works, and does it ever work! Our two oldest sons graduated from the MSS three and five years ago and our youngest son will graduate next year. The school administrators and the teachers are all fantastic. The supportive atmosphere they have provided from the school's foundation has led to the creation of a beautiful community of teachers, parents, graduates, and students. We will be forever grateful for the education and community MSS provides.

I could never say enough about how wonderful MSS has been for our boys. We actually tried our oldest in the local public kindergarten at the beginning of this past school year and switched him back to MSS after a week. Both our boys are confident, kind self-directed learners and for that we give so much credit to the Montessori school Of Syracuse and the amazing people who dedicate so much of themselves to our children.




- a
Our daughter has become a solid public speaker, and advocate for herself in her new classrooms (she graduated from MSS last year). We attribute these skills to her experience with the staff, curriculum, and extracurricular activities over her three years with MSS. Her ability to be a strong advocate for her own needs has been remarked on by her teachers, as she's comfortable approaching them for help, works well on group assignments, and adds to classroom discussions regularly.

December 19th, 2014. This was the last day of the first semester of our daughter s first of many years of peaceful, meaningful and educational journey. Montessori School of Syracuse (MSS)- staff, students, families and friends came together for a Peace Celebration. The Peace Celebration included families from diverse cultures and backgrounds representing several religious traditions. These families were gracious enough to share with those of us present, how this time of year was celebrated according to their culture. In addition, children sang about peace along with several Christmas favorites in different languages. Our daughter s grandmother, who was visiting from Puerto Rico along with her aunt, had the opportunity to enjoy this celebration and experience the environment of peace, harmony and acceptance that MSS provides for their students every day. Our family was so impressed with the discipline, organization, logistics, love and care of all the MSS put into this school. We feel very proud and privileged to be part of such rich community!
