    "This is our 3rd year at NNMS and we couldn't be happier with our choice of school or our daughter's progress. Montessori is the epitome of differentiated instruction and NNMS are pros at it. My daughter has thrived in this environment because the teachers are so well-trained to recognize strengths AND weaknesses. We can't say enough positive things about the mixed-aged classes and the benefits of mentor/mentee relationships we see forged everyday. In addition, the administration, faculty, and staff really strive to communicate and involve parents. We love NNMS's commitment to diversity. The parent community is extremely active and engaged. We certainly have high expectations from the school and believe they provide an excellent alternative education method from a traditional setting. That said, some parents still need hard numbers to be convinced. Our daughter reads at least 2-3 levels above her grade and her most recent test scores were 99/reading and 97/math. This might make her a success on paper, but the true testament is that she LOVES her school. Learning at NNMS is joy -- for all of us."

    "This school has no formal curriculum. There is no focus on academics at all. If you want your child to learn more about how to get along with others and less about reading fundamentals and mathematics than this is the school for you. The parent community is nice provided you adhere to a very liberal view point and don't complain about the lack of academics. They think they're preparing kids here for life. Okay sure, but how about preparing them for high school?! Stay away from this school unless you plan to transfer mid-year, a common occurrence here."

    "With 9 years in and 6 to go before our youngest finishes, we continue to be amazed and impressed at what a wonder place NNM is. We feel truly privileged to be able to give this experience to our children."

    "Most people love montessori for little kids, but now that my children are in middle school, I can assure you that montessori is even better as children grow into adolescence. Unlike stories I've heard from friends with children at other schools, my children literally RUN into the school when I drop them off in the morning. My children are age 9 and up and they LOVE school. What more could I ask for? Looking ahead, I recently saw the list of high schools where our students have been accepted over the past few years and it was impressive -- mostly selective enrollment and top-tier schools. We are very grateful to be a part of this supportive, soulful community."

    "My family was a part of NNMS for over 12 years. It has been & continues to be the best experience we could have had as a family pursuing a unique academic experience. I have observed that when parents do NOT partner with the school, but seek to impose thier own academic understanding to this proven Montessori approach, they tend to be disappointed. I have never felt that my children were compelled to compete, except with themselves. The one brilliant gift that NNMS gave my chlldren was thier own unique sense of curiosity and nutured in them a sincere desire to learn. My husband and I put ourselves into the hands of the gifted and caring individuals, the teachers, directors, office and maintenance staff. We always felt in true partnership with NNMS and our children have grown into thinkers and doers, still eager to learn and teach! Bravo!!"
