    "We have been very pleased with our experience at Old School Montessori. Our children attended OSM from 1st through 6th grades (our younger child is finishing 6th this year), and they have been excited to come to school every day. The teachers and staff provide a caring, supportive environment that allows students to learn at their own pace and promotes kindness and respect toward others. Our children have been challenged academically, learned to manage their time as they worked to complete assignments, and also developed great public speaking skills. Our children also loved programs such as Nature's Classroom, band, and Spanish. Our older child transitioned from OSM to middle school and high school without any problems, academically or socially. At the end of 8th grade, she was named the top academic student in her class of 380 students. She was asked to be the student speaker at the 8th grade graduation ceremony and spoke confidently to an audience of more than 1,000 people. We credit OSM and its dedicated teachers with fostering a love of learning in our children and helping them become more caring individuals. We highly recommend OSM to all families."

    "We could not be happier at this school. My child was attending another local montessori school for years and struggling. I had no idea things could be so much better. The teaching staff is excellent and tailors their style to the child's needs. The after school care is great and the optional enrichment programs are an added bonus. I would recommend this school to anyone."

    "It's been awhile since my girls attended OSM, but their teachers are still there. My kids attended from the age of three through kindergarten. They received an excellent education that gave them a great base of reasoning and responsibility. One is now in the honors program at the University of Illinois and the other is an honor roll student at WTHS. I truly believe that the three years they spent at OSM was a big part of their success. I'm not familiar with the current administration, but their excellent teachers are still there."

    "All three of my children attended this school for three years apiece, so we have attended for 8 years, with the same teacher the entire time. They all went through the primary program, from 3 - 6 years old. My daughters have thrived in the child-directed learning environment, and I love that each child learns at his or her own pace - no one is held back or left behind. This school provides the perfect blend of fun activities and academics, with singing, movement, crafts, and academics done with manipulatives that seem like games to the kids. The kindergarten aged kids receive Spanish weekly and group instruction in the afternoon on science topics. My daughters, when they transition to public school in first grade, have all been among the best readers in their classes and more advanced in math. OSM is not a high pressure environment, it is extremely nurturing. I love that practical life skills are a core part of the curriculum - the children prepare their own food, do the dishes after they snack, etc. The children flourish in this program to become confident kids who are encouraged to choose challenging work for themselves. They also have a lovely summer camp option."

    "As a parent of a child who has attended osm from age 3 to sixth grade, I highly recommend this school. They care about your child and the community. They have had fundraiser to help people in the community, as well as victims of the hurricanes, tsunami, march of dimes, and many other great causes. They have helped my child deal emotionally with a family illness and she has always had excellent grades. Over the years my child has had wonderful and caring teachers. It's been a wonderful experience."
