The best thing about Abintra is the individualized approach to the child. It seems SO natural & logical to meet the student at their current strengths & abilities and cultivate from there (not cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all)... The entire faculty treats students with respect & dignity, and the children are learning by example how to treat all those they encounter. They foster creativity, self-awareness, and teach HOW to think not just WHAT to think. In one school year, our daughter seems more confident, articulate, and thoughtful. We know with Abintra's foundation we are laying the best groundwork for our daughter & her future endeavors. We are THRILLED with the culture & community at Abintra, and feel SO LUCKY to have our child in their delicate care.

We have been beyond happy with Abintra Montessori School. Our family first learned of the school when we were researching preschools for our oldest child. The Montessori approach seemed like a good fit overall, so we started visiting the local schools that are noted as Montessori. Wow, there is such a difference between schools. Abintra felt like home, in the class room the guides are amazing with the children, the campus is orderly and well run as well as beautiful. Our child attended a play interview and left asking when he could return. It's been the perfect fit for us as a family and we are looking forward to many years as an Abintra family.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
