Fraser Wood students evolve into bright, articulate, and caring young adults, with amazing skills and characteristics to succeed in their studies, and in life.

Fraser Woods Montessori is a great school! My daughter has been here since she was 3 and she is now in Middle School. She has had an amazing experience both academically and socially. I really like the way the curriculum is set up, the way the teachers guide the students and I like the way classes ...  Read more

SCHOOL COVERS UP BULLYING ISSUES. The head of school refuses to address, or says it is being addressed, and nothing is done. My brother's child had to leave this school last year since she was so badly isolated and treated so poorly by the other students. The teachers turned a blind eye to it -- the ...  Read more

This school is the best! I'm so thankful I found it. My children would have been "fine" in the public schools. But having gone through eighth grade at Fraser Woods, they have developed a love of learning, confidence and a strong sense of self that has served them well in the Newtown high school and ...  Read more

The teachers at this school are amazing! I love that they came to me with great excitement to share a wonderful moment with my daughter. My daughter was ready to be pushed to the next level and they pushed - she is now soaring. It is not about grades and comparisons to others, it is about how my daughter ...  Read more

I ended up sending all three of my children to Fraser Woods -they all graduated from the middle school. It was the best choice I could have made. ...  Read more

My daughter continues to have a great experience at FWM. She started when she was 2 1/2 and has loved her many friends and teachers for the past 9 years. As a parent I LOVE the Montessori way of educating her. FWM has been respectful of her as an individual while teaching her to become an avid learner ...  Read more

Parents, Please read the negative reviews before investing in your child's education here. The teaching is "creative" and enriched by literature and art. What is sacrificed is rigor, consistency in education. Once my daughter left this school for public school, she praises her public school. She ...  Read more

My child graduated from Fraser Woods recently and is doing phenomenal in our local public high school. I can't be any more pleased with the transition that he had. He is enrolled in mostly all honors classes. Thank you Fraser Woods for the great foundation you set for him!

I have had two children attend FWM and now that my nephew and his wife are deciding on an independent school for my nieces, my mind came right back to FWM. As an educator, myself, I knew a Montessori education would be best for my children. The Montessori experience my children had was very unique and ...  Read more
