Simply amazing. My daughter started out in preschool and we thought she'd go somewhere else after kindergarten. But she excelled so much and did so well and loved school so much that there was no way we could move her to a rigid program somewhere else. She was too advanced and loves KMS. Why mess with success and happy? She continues to excel in the "upper level" (grades 1 through 6) and she continues to love school. Being able to move at her own pace and get ahead has really helped her. As she says "I love learning...and Ms. MaryAnn (teacher) makes learning fun." Hands on learning and not sitting in a desk sure can work out in a school setting (non-traditional, but I am now a believer). We could not be happier and have been nothing but amazed at what a few great teacher and people at KMS can accomplish. It is well worth the investment and a great return on the tuition. If you can afford it, you should consider KMS, especially if you have a motivated child. It is less than most private schools charge. And I didn't even mention the free piano lessons that are offered for each upper level student. Amazing to hear so many of them play.

One of my daugthers graduated last school year of 2006-2007, and went on to public school to become #1 out of 300 of her 7th grade peers. Her best friend, whom is in another school due to boundry lines, was ALSO first in her class of 7th graders. Both qualified for 8th grade Pre-Algebra, and this year are in Algebra, both still getting straight A's. My youngest daughter has dyslexia, but with the small class sizes, she's never had to wait for help. Every child needs to feel that learning is it's own reward, and enjoy learning for the sake of learning. Every time I read about this school or that school adjusting it's curriculum, I laugh. 'Hands on learning' was invented by Maria Montessori, over 100 years ago! www.kenoshaMontessoriSchool.com Thank you.

It's early in the year so far for writing a review, but so far I must say that I am extremely impressed with this school. The staff is excellent and my child is thriving in ways he did not last year. I clearly attribute this to the staff and they way the respond to my child in such a positive and encouraging way. I highly recommend this school. Their preschool and kindergarten is great too. The methods of learning are great too. The teach the interconnectedness of everything, they learn about cooking, art, music, spanish, gym amongst the basics.
