    "We have been part of this school community since 2006. Both of my children began attending the school at the age of 2.5 and my eldest is now in 5th grade. Both of my children love school, and are eager to get to school each day. The school is accredited by the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools. Each head teacher in grades Toddler through 5th grade is an American Montessori Association certified teacher for their grade level. Because of that and a Head of School that was trained by one of Maria Montessori's original students, the research-based teaching method has a strong foundation at this school. The classroom environments are well-kept and full of beautiful, interesting and highest quality authentic Montessori materials. I am especially impressed with the language and mathematics materials--learning complicated multiplication is interesting, fun and completely logical. My children have an understanding of the basic principles of mathematics that is an unshakeable foundation. I look forward to next year, when my eldest begins in the middle school!"

    "My child was in this school from kindergarten through 6th grade. When he went to public school for 7th grade, we found that he was behind in every way with the exception of math. His writing, reading, organizational skills, time management skills and music knowledge were all behind his public school peers. It was a very expensive lesson."

    "Understand who your child is before you decide to place him/her in FWM. For preschool, if your child is not a "self-starter/cookie cutter child", they will get lost in this maze of "figure it out yourself". There is rampant bullying, even at a young age and teachers usually choose not to see this but rather focus on the child who is "loud". It is a very polarizing environment and the head of the school has no idea what business she is in. Enrollment is way down and there is a reason for it. There are many other great education choices in Newtown. My child after only one month out of the FWM environment and in another preschool is blossoming and make huge strides with more confidence, skills sets and is genuinely happy and learning."

    "Fraser Wood students evolve into bright, articulate, and caring young adults, with amazing skills and characteristics to succeed in their studies, and in life. My own kids and their friends love to go to FWM. The teachers meet each kid where they are academically and emotionally, and help them move forward at their own pace. It is incredible to see the multi-age classroom in action. They also provide a non-competitive environment in classes, sports and throughout the school. This allows the students to work together in a supportive and cooperative way, to develop intrinsic motivation to excel, and to build skills to get along in the world when they move on."

    "Fraser Woods Montessori is a great school! My daughter has been here since she was 3 and she is now in Middle School. She has had an amazing experience both academically and socially. I really like the way the curriculum is set up, the way the teachers guide the students and I like the way classes are set up as I think the students are more productive than in a traditional setting. If you've never seen a Montessori classroom you'll be amazed. I think they let you do classroom observations so go check it out. All the kids are busy working on their own. This way of learning teaches them to really follow directions and work independently. I saw another post about bullying and I was surprised as we've never experienced it or seen it here. Being respectful of each other has always been encouraged in my daughter's classes, in fact that is why we chose FWM over any other school. Wish they had a High School!!"
