    "We love The Village School, a true Montessori environment that focuses on educating the whole child & developing a lifetime love of learning. Montessori is well known for preschool; however, the K-8 programs are amazing as well. In K-8th Grade there are personalized work plans so each child is challenged & learns to take responsibility for their own learning. The 7th&8th Graders develop personalized study skills & use a 2 week planner to help prioritize/plan their workload. Self-motivation, critical thinking, multi-tasking, prioritization, public speaking, conflict resolution - these are critical life skills that are part and parcel of the environment at the school. They DO NOT stress testing which helps nurture a true love of learning for the sake of learning itself. Our children's education dovetails with our parenting decisions/ family philosophy. The parent community is wonderful, welcoming & active, a collection of like minded people who have actively sought out this ideal Montessori environment. We feel so lucky to have this option available to us."

    "We looked all over the place at many schools before we settled on the Village School and we have been extremely happy ever since. They practice true Montessori education and take it all the way from Pre-K to 8th grade. Many parents start here thinking it will just be for pre-school and the kids do so well that they stay through 8th grade. We just watched the sixth graders give speeches to a packed auditorium on their "Expert Project" for the year. These kids had more confidence speaking at a podium than many adults I know! And the school is also expanding now with a big new building addition and also existing building renovations. The parent community is great as well. Very down to earth and supportive. I could not recommend this school more highly!"

    "The Village school is an amazing well rounded education!! I have seen my boys become independent students who are very confident in their own abilities. In all the years they have attended the school they have never expressed on any day that they don't wish to attend. They have developed such a love of learning, they are curious, interested in research and have the ability to think outside the box! The teachers are amazing and really know the children. It is a school where the teachers really want to be there. Their passion for teaching and the joy they get when helping a child is so obvious. These are teachers that don't just teach to the test! The children from toddlers through to the middle school are one big happy community that works together giving the children an educational foundation for a life time. I highly recommend this school to those who really care if their child is going to get a whole child education!"

    "Teachers and the director are very nice and knowledgeable. The school is well equipped with all the necessary montessori materials with a very nice environment (bright sunny classrooms/gym/music..). it has a very nice teacher to student ratio. However, in the primary level (preschool class for 3-6) I don't think the teachers keep track of student progress that well. I found my kid spent most of his time in doing practical life rather than language or math. As a working mom, I found it stressful not to participate enough at the school. Even though the school has before and after school care (new since 2009), it is quite expensive to put my kid there for my working hours. If I could be wealthy enough to stay home and keep track on my kid's progress as well as participate more at school, I would let my kid stay until 8th grade."

    "The Village School is exceptional on so many levels. I feel as though I am giving my children a gift by providing this education to them. The Teachers are sincerely interested in the success of each child and the children are encouraged to be creative and independent while there is still an emphasis on academics, ethics, and social responsibility. The self-confidence demonstrated by the middle school children enforces my confidence in the choice we have made for our childrens education. I highly recommend The Village School!"
