    "My children attend Anchorage Montessori School's elementary program. It is the only elementary school I have ever experienced that offers a completely customized curriculum for each student. The staff truly live the Montessori motto to meet the child where they are at and develop them into lifelong learners. The classrooms are multi-age which encourages student leadership and lessens the stress of a new teacher every year. The curriculum is focused on global and cultural awareness and tolerance and respect for all people. There are several non-native English speakers in the class which adds to the diversity. You simply could not find a more ideal setting for your child to recognize their strengths and flourish in a supportive and nurturing environment. It is a gem."

    "My four year old son has been attending AMS since June of 2014. We have decided to enroll him in the program after he simply outgrew the traditional childcare development center's methods. He was restless, bored and miserable while being dropped off in the morning. Everything has changed since he started at AMS. He loves his teachers, he takes pride in the "work" he does, and it never ceases to amaze me how much he learns every day. The good habits established by a quality Montessori education translate into every aspect of his life - whether putting his toys away, assisting us in dinner preparation or simply being able to pick up a book, a puzzle or an activity book, find an appropriate place, and purposefully occupy himself. I really appreciate getting a verbal feedback from his teachers, as well as a weekly classroom-specific newsletter depicting and describing all the wonderful activities that the children have partook of. The happiness of my child is the final confirmation that we have made the right choice."

    "Anchorage Montessori School has been serving the families of Anchorage since 1977. This program houses children from 19 months to 12 years old and uses the time tested Montessori methodology. As an educator for over 35 years I find this approach very effective for reaching a child's potential and letting it blossom in a natural manner. By and large there are not many reviews of this program listed in Great Schools. That is unfortunate because the one or two negative commentaries overshadow the general satisfaction the clientele maintains. I invite anyone to visit this school to see and feel the positive, professional, and child centered approach to learning and living."

    "I have had two children attend AMS and am very happy with their development and with the school. It is a very welcoming environment and both of my children have taken to it. Both of my children started as toddlers. I looked at other schools in Anchorage and felt that AMS had the most to offer. From what I can tell there seems to be very low staff turnover. I would encourage others to visit the school and take a tour. As a side note: when our daughter first started attending this fall at 3 years old, her teacher offered to come to our house after work for a short visit. It was a very nice thing to do and helped to make our daughter more comfortable in class."

    "We've had our children in AMS since they were toddlers. They are both now in the elementary program and are thriving. I am amazed every day at how much they are learning. We attempted public school with one of our kids, but that didn't last long as he wasn't being challenged at all. We transferred him back to AMS and haven't looked back since. At AMS the students are taught to be self-motivated and learn by self-direction and leadership. By learning at an individual rate, this allows children on both ends of the learning spectrum to not only succeed, but to excel. The teachers, administrative staff and executive director are all dedicated and passionate about the Montessori philosophy and in making sure that each student gets the very best education. I have been so pleased with AMS and how it is instilling the love learning in my children, with not only the core subjects, but also music, art and language. This will last a lifetime for them."
