My daughter attended TTMS from age 3 through sixth grade. She experienced the full academic benefit of a stellar Montessori education (a rock-solid foundation in reading, writing, composition, mathematics, history, science, art, music, geography, social studies, etc.). But her experience was so much more than the 'three Rs'. The mixed-age, collaborative class communities and incredible teachers have supported her and her classmates' growth into compassionate, responsible, empathetic, empowered, self-directed children whose love of learning, creative problem-solving, intellectual inquisitiveness, caring, and ability to think outside the box is seemingly boundless. It has been a joy to see my child transition to the larger social sphere and expanding academic aspects of middle school with relative ease: she is confident in her abilities, has stretched herself with greater responsibilities and leadership roles, and has faced challenges secure in the knowledge that she has the intellectual and emotional tools to meet them.
