    "This is my sons second year in this school. I have seen so many positive changes in him since leaving the public school system. He has become a motivated self starter with a better attitude towards school and his responsibilities. The smaller class sizes are an added benefit. I only wish I had found this school sooner. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a positive change for your child."

    "Wider Horizons School incorporates Montessori learning into the lower grades and moves into College Preparatory in junior high then Dual Enrollment in high school. WHS helps today's students learn to work more quickly, more accurately and to focus on the activity at hand. Students have the opportunity to read classic literature on every grade level. No student is required to read a book that his/her parents may not like. The result of the education at WHS is our graduates are successful in the college of their choice."

    "I am still owed money from the directors of this school. I unenrolled my children based upon the finding of a book in his classroom that I had been told would not be there and the access to this literature was misrepresented to me when i contacted your school months prior. I had expressed that I had unerolled my child for that exact teaching at another montessori and was told it would certainly not be at Wider. Upon finding the book on the day before school Mr Maggio concurred it is a damaging book for anyone to read. I was told that they do not know what books are in the shelves because they are donated. How then when I contacted the school prior would it be possible for them to tell me this book was not at this school. Also moreover how concerning for the secretary to know children have read it there. Due to this I do not feel as though I can trust this school based on what they tell me. I have yet to receive a refund of the money I have paid even though my children never attend a day of classes."

    "I really do love this school! This is my daughter's 2nd year at Wider Horizons. She just turned 5 and she will be starting Kindergarten this year. Last year, in preschool, she learned her addition and subtraction tables and began working on her multiplication tables. She is an excellent speller already and has begun reading. Personally, I like that the kids are able to work at their own pace. It helps to keep their attention and doesn't allow them to become bored or disenchanted with their work. The school is relatively small and close knit. Dr. and Mrs. Maglio know each and every student that attend their school and their scholastic progress. The teaching staff is excellent and fosters the idea that they are a community within the community. I always see the older children helping the younger ones in the classroom and on the playground and I've never heard of a case of bullying here. Even at her young age, my daughter tells me about the new kids that started and how she and other students are helping them to learn the ropes. I hope to keep my daughter in school at Wider Horizons throughout her academic career."

    "My 3 year old son has been attending this school since Fall 2012. He has impressed us time and time again with the skills developed at this school. From making his own counting board with chalk on our driveway to show us how he can do math work, to singing traditional and patriotic songs for our whole family! He has started to read, he can write his name, and knows most sight words at the age of 3. A great method of independent learning is implemented in this school which allowed our son to progress at maximum potential. He is very proud of his work and we are too! Beginning Fall 2013, all three of our school-age children are going to attend. We are looking forward for this year's work and progress at Wider Horizons!"
