This school is wonderful. They teach that everyone is unique and learns their own way. So no one is labeled as different. They allow children to advance at their ace so that those who are advanced can wok on work appropriate for their abilities.

About this school

At Central Montessori Academy education is not about lecture, drill, or rote memorization. Education at Central Montessori Academy, while rigorous, is more about providing each child with the experience to learn in a way that works for the unique individual they are. The children then live what they learn making the lessons become a part of who they are, instead of something to be forgotten after the test has been given. As our school continues to grow, we are looking for families who share our values and beliefs about what an education can be. Our goal in admissions is to find the best possible match between student, family and school.
