A Montessori education should be the standard teaching method throughout the country. Its student idividualized approach and tactile/visual learning style is second to none. And Park Road Montessori makes this method even more notable with its awesome teachers and staff that consistently go the extra mile to ensure sudents have what they need to learn and parents are inspired to stay involved. And our PTO is awesome too. I call it the Park Road Parent Machine!

I like many things about Park Road Montessori. I love how involved the parents are. They are very dedicated. The principal is never in her office. She walks around the school visible for the parents to see. My son knows who his principal is. The ladies at the front dest are the most caring and helpful secretaries that I have ever meet, they go out of their way for a lot of things. The school has a beautiful showcase of art work out side the classroom doors. I can go on and on. But these are a few things why I like Park Road so much.

Each kid learns at his/her own pace. Teachers understand each child's capabilities and limitations, and work with the child to enhance the first and to overcome the second. That teaching strategy builds the child's self esteem, promotes his/her creativity and his/her love for learning. The parent's involvement and the administrator's support are also pivotal for the success of this great school.

The students at Park Road are exposed to opportunities that other children in traditional public schools are not able to experience. Being a Montessori school, combined with our wonderful and dedicated teachers, the children naturally excel as they are taught in a manner that is motivating and captivating.

Park Road Montessori has given my son an excitement about learning. As a second grader he is learning things that I did not learn until a much later age. The school is very diversified and reflects our society. The teachers really care about each student. The administration strives to do what is best for the students and the faculty. If it were a private school people would pay top dollar to have their children attend. I highly recommend Park Road Montessori to any parent that has a young child ready to enter school.

Park Road Montessori is a wonderful school that brings out the best in each and every child. This is my daughter's third year there and I am truly amazed at what she has learned. The creativity that is encouraged in the classroom helps the students learn how to learn. Not because they have to but because they want to. I could not ask for a better school.

There is just an excitement and passion when you walk the halls of Park Road Montessori. The faculty, staff, students & parents just believe in and love this place. The teachers are amazing, creative and are given permission to really soar with their students in their own unique ways. My son started @ Park Rd. a 4 years old (had just turned 4) for Pre-K and was reading within a few months. Unreal. I love the whole ethos of the school...caring for the earth and each other and being responsible citizens. Can't say enough postive things!

I love that Park Road is a Montessori school. The curriculum, campus and even extracurricular activities are all designed to educate the whole child...to create a well rounded and responsible child. The fact that the teachers are with the children for 2-3 years truly allows them to get to know a child and nurture them. The school is everything I could want for my child's educational foundation!

I have 2 children who attend this montessori school. Each child learns at his or her own pace and children are encouraged to help eachother. I can not stress how important it is to research montessori philosophies before sending your child to a school that uses this approach. It is an extremely effective non-traditional way of teaching that has been proven to work. I knew this was an exceptional school when my 4 year old is doing multiplication in a peaceful environment next to a child who is learning his numbers.
