    "I'm completely dumbfounded as to why anyone would write a negative review of this school. I went to this school from pre-school to 8th grade, and now a student in high school, I attend one of the top boarding high schools in the country and am in all honors classes. This school taught me to love learning, and the teachers there helped me thrive. I'm now leaps and bounds ahead of other students my age because of the teachings of this school. The teachers are absolutely wonderful and I've always respected them and seen them as mentors. As for the people saying their students were behind or weren't payed attention to, that confuses me as well. Every student that has gone to TMS and I'm in contact with now are all thriving and doing incredibly well in their new schools. And the teachers are always certain that every student is on the right track, and if not, pay special attention to them to make sure they do understand the material presented to them. This school helped shape me into the person I am today, and I'll forever be grateful. I would recommend this school to anyone, knowing it would help their child thrive and come into their own. ~former student"

    "My children love the preschool program and the teachers are wonderful! However while dropping my child off, I saw the head of school screaming at her staff members in front of the parents and the children. I found this to be completely unprofessional. I dont however enjoy having my children apart of an environment where the teachers fear the directors. That is not the way a school should be run."

    "Our son has been a student from preschool through elementary. It's a great fit for him. The program is highly kid driven. My son loves learning and it picking up things at his own pace. We're every happy with the teachers and leadership."

    "Our daughter started at Montessori School when she was 18 months old. When she started in the two-year old class we found that the staff and teacher were very unfair and completely ignorant of child development. Every time we brought up concerns, we were treated very poorly and the director of the school refused to meet with us. At one point, we were given medical advice from one of the staff members, which our pediatrician later stated was very poor and unsafe advice. And, they absolutely would not help us potty train our daughter. We were told that if she had an accident at school she would be put back in a diaper. Every day that I picked up my daughter I was told negative comments, and rushed out the door. The classrooms are completely bare of any imaginative toys (dolls, dress-up clothes, play-dough, etc.). I never saw a painting or any sort of art work, there is no music or dance classes, and no foreign languages for the younger kids. As an educated parent, and school psychologist with many years of early childhood experience, I absolutely DO NOT recommend this school."

    "What a wonderful place for children! I have found this school to be a loving and enriching place for our children and family. They really care about the entire family. My toddler has flourished at this school. We love and trust the faculty and staff. We have found them to be well trained and they have done extensive research on child development (consulting with doctors, therapists, and more). It is a true Montessori school. We feel so lucky to be a part of the Montessori family. Go on a school tour and do an observations...don't trust these reviews...see for yourself!"
