I have been there since primary and now I'm in 7th grade I love the school. It's a great system now in 7th grade there's small classes so there is a lot of interaction. Mr. Gerald is personally my favorite teacher he may seem scary at first but he is truly the nicest. Mr.gerald is my personal idol
We are about to complete our third year at MSSA and it just keeps getting better! Our second child will attend in the fall and I couldn't be more thrilled! I know that he will be placed in the perfect class for him. He will thrive just as our daughter has! The community is so welcoming and friendly. The staff has been wonderful to work with and our daughter's teacher has been incredible. It amazes me how well she "gets" not only my daughter, but every child in her class. It is truly an individualized learning environment. This is a unique school and we are so blessed to be a part of it.
MSSA has been the most remarkable and rewarding experience for our family. Every day our children are thrilled to go to school. Our children feel safe in their environment, surrounded by nature, respect, courtesy, and the encouragement to ask questions, explore new realms, and think outside of the box. Everywhere you look, there is a real sense of joy in the learning environment. MSSA is strong in so many ways, but I think its greatest strengths are the individualized educational plans for each student, the genuine love of learning fostered in each child, and the caring and compassionate environment of the school community. The children are taught at the very beginning to have respect for themselves, to respect others and to be courteous to everyone. Such an environment fosters creativity and allows children to explore all avenues without recrimination. We have been at MSSA for many years and choose to stay at MSSA because it is the best environment for our children to explore their curiosity, reach their full potential, and master subjects at their own pace. Our children have thrived at MSSA and are thrilled to go to school every day.
Our two very different children continue to exhibit the benefits of their many years at this excellent school. Dedicated, flexible and knowledgeble teachers and a unique campus combined with strong Montessori priniciples were certainly worth the tuition. The School allowed our kids to learn, not memorize material. Each child transitioned to different public schools without any bumps and received college scholarships which the School certainly played a part in. Many of our friends enrolled their kids, based in part on our enthusiasm for the School. Concerned parents with similar priorities have become long time friends. Years after leaving MSSA, we continue to support this unique local resource.
