The Grand Forks area is so fortunate to have such an exemplary Montessori school, and I am thrilled that my daughter is receiving such wonderful care and such an amazing academic foundation at GFMA. The staff are organized, kind, patient, committed to the Montessori method, and clearly care deeply about the work that they do and the kids that they work with. It has been a joy to watch my daughter thrive in, and as a result of, an environment that fosters her independence, teaches respect and responsibility, and enables her to be exposed to such a diverse set of materials and learning experiences. As a preschooler she has learned about and been exposed to everything from foundational math, reading and writing skills, to practical life skills, foreign language, music, yoga, and sign language. Equally as important as how pleased I have been with our experience at GFMA, is how happy my daughter is. She thoroughly enjoys going to school, her peers, and her instructors and is excited to go every morning!

My child loves going to school each day. She is excited to see her teachers and is excited to learn. She loves learning sign language and is excited to show me the new signs she has learned. I love seeing her grow and learn both academically as well as socially. The teachers have a great approach and show genuine interest in each child's development. The teachers do a great job communicating concerns as well as accomplishments. I would like to see more opportunities for parents to be involved in activities.

Is it possible to feel so much at home even when you are at work? Because at Grand Forks Montessori Academy, I do! This school is everything I have been looking for as a teacher. Being the areas first Montessori school, I was thrilled to be hired as the Elementary teacher. Montessori is a positive, individualized learning environment where children can grow academically, mentally, physically, and emotionally. I am proud to be a part of the academic success at this school, and hope you consider enrolling your student in our school today!

I've had my kids enrolled for several years now, and I am pleased with the new changes and growth. I also love the incorporation of the music lessons, sign language and foreign language programs. My children learn something new every day and come home willing to share what they've been learning with enthusiasm. The teachers have a heart and genuinely care for the children - as they always have. As another reviewer notes, parent involvement has lagged in the past, but with the new technology and ownership, I'm seeing a big push to engage parents more. Now it's time for me to do my part!

This is a wonderful program where my family has been for sixeen years! They have reliability, consistancy, and best of all the Montessori approach. The staff at the school is always willing to visit with parents about any detail of the childrens day. Bravo little Scholar Ship!

Overall I would say that this is a wonderful program for children in Grand Forks, if not the best for young minds to grow and learn how to think on their own. The teachers are a wonderful balance of strict and heart, which add to a very stable environment the little butterflies to emerge. My only complain would be to get the parents a little more involved and to do some sort of extracurricular activities by working with other programs in the area such as gymnastics and swimming lessons.
