Mrs. Paty is doing a wonderful job and the Barrera Family really appreciates her hard work. We know when it comes to feeding Isaiah baby food he can be inpatient. Thank you and the staff. You guys have a really nice program.

We want to thank Miss Claudia for everything she does for Eden. She really enjoys her class, and we have seen her grow intellectually during her time at King Arthur. She is constantly surprising us with new things she is learning, and we know it is because of everything she teach her. We appreciate how responsive Miss Claudia is when we request for her to focus more on key areas like alphabets or penmanship. Having a great teacher makes all the difference in a child s outlook on learning, and we are so happy that she has consistently been with her the entire time! Thank you again. We would also like to say thank you to Mrs. Biky for always having a friendly face and a kind word for Eden. We appreciate her willingness to provide updates on her progress and the various items that she has been working on. It is clear that she cares for the children and loves what she does. Keep up the good work!

It s really our pleasure to share a few words about our daughter Khyati's teachers and school management and King Arthur During the last three years we were very happy and comfortable sending our daughter to King Arthur and we were very much pleased with the management services and teachers; the way they are treating our daughter.

We would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate everything Mrs. Prya has done to help Saketh improve this year. Most importantly his math skills and writing skills have improved a lot after he started coming to Mrs. Prya s Kindergarten class. He definitely couldn't have done it without her support. We wholeheartedly appreciate her time, patience, continuous support and feel blessed to have her as his teacher. Thank-you very much for making a difference! Saketh is a better student because of her. Thank-you!

Ms. Patty is there every morning to greet Alana with a smile. She treats our daughter like her own and goes the extra mile to ensure Alana is happy. It is difficult raising a child, especially your first child, but knowing that Ms. Patty is taking care of Alana in our absence makes the work day pass with ease. Thank you for all you do Ms. Patty.

Mrs. Nissa is very passionate about kids and my daughter Shanaya loves her class. She seems to be very patient with the kids. We are grateful that she takes extra time and energy to help Shanaya. Thank you!

We want to thank Mrs. Areli so much for the time she invests in teaching. Her patience is undeniable and her kindness, so genuine. She does an awesome job with Ace, and we are so grateful to have her as his first teacher. In the short time that he has been in her class, he has learned so much and improved socially but most importantly, he has grown to really enjoy school. She is a remarkable teacher and has made a lasting impression on Ace s life.

I wanted to take time to recognize some of your teachers. Mrs. Nissa is doing a great job. I can tell Shelby enjoys her time with her. Shelby is getting smarter by the day!! She is also learning manners, which is greatly appreciated and one of the reasons I chose this school was because the kids were calm and there was a peaceful environment. Mrs. Andrea does a great job. I could tell Shelby really enjoyed her time with her. She is always so cheerful and welcoming! Mrs. Melinda is also equally as welcoming and Shelby loves her! The kids are always calm when we get there, or singing! Shelby comes home and shows us all she's learned and practices rolling up blankets after she is through playing. It's adorable. At first, it was very difficult for me to find a place I felt had the level of excellence and care that my aunt had for Shelby, but now, as we look for a new home, we find ourselves only looking at homes that will accommodate her school in our commute. Thank you KAMA! Candy Stewart

At one point, the school had strong leadership because they had a certified Montessori director very dedicated to Montessori pedagogy; however, the owner and new director are not Montessori certified and it is obvious. The teachers do a good job overall, but were limited in what they could actually do based on the turnover following the dismissal of the last director. Sadly, it felt more like daycare, rather than traditional Montessori. The original teachers (all Montessori certified) that taught our child are gone. At this time, we would not recommend to families seriously considering a Montessori education.

I would like to thank you and Shelby s teachers for making Shelby s transition from in-home care to school as easy as possible for us. I love that for the most part, she doesn t cry when we drop her off and sometimes doesn t want to leave after school. This is all new to us and the fact that she has adapted so quickly speaks volume of the great team. C. Stewart

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.
