    "We spent 3.5 years at this school, and have since moved. We have moved to a much larger metropolitan area and cannot find a school to compare. While there were some rough years with a terrible director and one bad teacher (who are both gone), the teachers are fantastic and committed to the students. The natures classroom trip beginning around age 6-7 is absolutely amazing. We miss this school a lot. Such a great environment."

    "I am a former teacher and founder of an accredited school - so a very tough customer. I actually had tears of joy when I first visited here for my toddler. A calm toddler classroom? It was in my school and it is here which you don't see often. She had been in 2 "schools" previously which turned out to be daycare at best. I say this as a teacher, my child has been an incredibly fast learner and aware of everything from the beginning. Not even 3, she is reading and doing activities many 5 yr. olds can't do. She has WONDERFUL teachers and LOVES going to school. The school is very community oriented. I won't move from the area until my daughter graduates from here (if she so chooses)."

    "I am updating a previous review of mine. I disagree with someone's negative post and do not think this is a 1 star school - that is an overreaction. I believe it is well worth the investment. We have been part of the MSLF community for 5+ years now. When my son was 4 and doing addition and subtraction with ease and doing multiplication, division when he was 5. My children have great manners and self esteem because of their education here. Participation and donations were down after a new school director came on board. She has since left and there has been a great weight lifted off the school for everyone involved. The teachers are experienced and committed and make it worthwhile. I have toured other Montessori Schools around the country and this school is exceptional."

    "My daughter is 4 years old and has been at MOTL since she was 16 months and I have the highest praise for the school and the teachers. Our daugther's teacher and her assistant are creative and challenge the kids to be their best. They have several interactive events that involve the parents. They definately foster a love for learning and the setting is beautiful."

    "My son has attended MSLF since he was two years. I knew the day I toured the school that MSLF provided the learning environment I wanted him to experience growing up. Ten years later, he attends the Adolescent Program. As his grandmother says, his face lights up when he talks about his school. His teachers have inspired in him the 'love of learning' to which the school is committed."
