    "We have completed our first year at Near North Montessori and are totally pleased. The children at this school are learning to be dynamic, innovative, adaptable and well -educated thinkers that CARE about themselves, others and the environment. The curriculum fosters independence, responsibility, accountability and compassion through the "work" children complete daily, and their interactions with one another. The style of education truly prepares these children to enter into the global community as resilient, positive individuals. The administrative team is approachable and attentive to any issues that may arise during the year. Our daughter has grown in ways the we could never have imagined one year ago; and Near North has had a big part in supporting our efforts at home to continue to encourage her journey to flourish to her true potential and blossom into a confident, generous and kind human being. Thank you Near North for an awesome year, and we are already excited about next fall."

    "We've been at this school for 11 years. My daughter started at two and graduated last year. We have had a perfect experience the entire time. My kids are happy, engaged and have acquired a very broad knowledge base. My daughter got into her first choice of high school."

    "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."
