    "Our child has been at Montessori Private Academy since 2007 & will be an 8th grader in the fall. He has been receiving an excellent academic education and continues to love learning, due to the hard work and dedication of the staff. The students learn responsibility, respect for others, and other skills needed in society. It is well-rounded learning. The middle school teacher has kept the students excited about learning by tapping into their creativity and imagination, sometimes combining arts with science, literature, or history. They become comfortable with public speaking by presenting their work to classmates and other classes, using PowerPoint or other software. They work hard, using and perfecting time management skills learned early on in their education to complete assignments. The new administrator has a strong Montessori background, with fresh ideas and good organizational skills. We find him to be a great asset to the school. By developing a strong sense of self, social skills, and receiving excellent guidance and academics, we feel that students are well prepared for what lies ahead in high school and beyond."

    "Both of my children have been going to MPA for over 7 years now, and we feel that we have made the best investment in our children's future that we can by sending them here. We are so happy to have our kids come home each day from school and still be excited about what they have learned or accomplished. They are challenged academically but have been taught the skills and problem solving needed to meet and exceed these challenges. They have wonderful, caring, and patient teachers who truly want nothing but the best for them. Our children will continue their education here through the highest possible grade."

    "I would not recommend this school. The quality of education has declined with the new administrator and the tuition has increased. It use to be a good, safe, enjoyable place for our kids but that is changing."

    "We have two children at MPA. They both started when they were two and are now five and eight. We are reminded by them each day during the summer how much they enjoy the learning experiences, the staff and the environment. They can t wait to go back in the Fall. We didn t know anything about a Montessori education when we were looking for schools, but are now big believers. Our children have benefited greatly from the multi-age classrooms and the opportunities to learn at their own pace. They love being able to focus on one topic or project for an extended period until they have mastered it. It s great preparation for the real world . The testing we ve done outside of school shows them to be well ahead of their peers in more traditional schools. Their staff has gotten stronger each year. The new principal has taken time to meet with us and we are big fans of his approach to communication with us. Parents looking for a safe, friendly, learning environment with great staff and a beautiful campus should consider this school."
