My wife and I have our three children (a first, fourth and seventh grader) attending Maria Montessori School and we have nothing but good things to say about it. It's our fourth year in this school and we've found that all of their teachers have been great. Kids of different age ranges socialize with ...  Read more

We love this elementary school. The teacher:student ratio is amazing (7:1 in my daughters kindergarten class) and the teaching model is fantastic. Our daughter is happy to go to school every day and enjoys learning. We hope to stay at this school all the way through 8th grade. I just wish they had ...  Read more

My children have been attending Maria Montessori School for the past 8 years, and we love this school! My children have a passion for learning, enjoy going to school, and have made great friends. The oldest will graduate from the 8th grade this year, and we couldn't be happier with the middle school ...  Read more

Communication between the school and families is poor, inconsistent and often confusing. The administration is unprofessional and unskilled beyond the purely academic ...  Read more

I still regret that I ever sent my child to this school. The teacher's attitudes were hurtful, they want little soldiers not happy children. All they care about is how well your child can perform for them and don't want to do anything different from how a latchkey child can learn. The work was not ...  Read more

We are so happy with our overall experience with MMS. Our daughter started MMS at a young 3 year old and from the first day of school I have felt completely comfortable leaving her in this environment every day. We have been at the school for three years and have found the teachers to be nurturing, ...  Read more

MMS has far exceeded my expectations. It prepares children to be independent learners and critical thinkers. The cosmic curriculum gives them a deeper understanding of the world we live in. Besides the strong academic accomplishments the school also holds high standards in social behavior. Children ...  Read more

I was surprised to read the comments in the previous school review! My children have been in this school for 10 years, pre-school through 6th grade, and it has been amazing! Every classroom has an appropriate age range, a good teacher/child ratio, and provides individualized, hands-on learning. The ...  Read more
