I have been so impressed with Adobe Montessori School. My son is 3 years old and is completing his second year. I am amazed at how he has developed intellectually as well as socially in this short time. He loves going to school and comes home telling me all that he has learned, his newest being the name of all 50 states! His communication skills have improved as well as his ability to perform tasks independently. The teachers are wonderful and always willing to answer any questions I have regarding his progress. I highly recommend Adobe Montessori School!

Everything but teaching. Mychild is going there for 3 years. I have mixed reviews about the school. Teacher and staff is loving. But there is no teaching of either Math or reading or writing, not even 10 mins per week. They do not even teach student on what he or she is good at. My daughter likes to color and she brings in ton of coloring pages at home, all full of scribbles. Teacher never showed how to color properly. Students are left to do whatever they want. I am not happy with this school at all.

I am extremely thankful I found Adobe Montessori! My daughter has blossomed from being extremely shy and clingy to a confident and independent little girl. My daughter's teacher has been amazing and has nurtured and guided my daughter for the past two years.

Both of my sons attend Adobe Montessori. I have seen them learn and grow from the caring but challenging environment. This school is the best kept secret in AZ.

We love this school, my first son began reading at age of 5. My second son began writing his name, and spelling it at age 3. THe staff is wonderful, solid professional women who truly love their job! I highly recommend Adobe!

My child just started at Adobe. She went right into the program excited and wants to go every day. The transition from her previous school was smooth and the staff has been very kind and supportive of the family. I am finding they believe we are in partnership and this is very refreshing. I am so thankful to have found Adobe Montessori.

My child has been attending Adobe for 2 years now. He is very independent, curious, and loves learning new things. The teachers have been very patient with him, answering all his questions, and re-directing his focus, as needed, in a positive, loving manner. The school has parent education nights, and the one on positive discipline was awesome! Our child gets a consistent routine, but knows he is safe to explore as much as he likes. We really love this school!

I wasn't sure how my child would do in a montessori environment and after 2 years there I'm still not sure what to think. My child isn't taking a lot of initiative and in a self-directed program like Montessori it depends on their desire to learn. I do love the staff as others have mentioned but I am concerned that the high teacher/student ratios prevents my child from getting enough attention and direction that they need. I'm also concerned that my child doesn't like going to school and argues with me about it most mornings.

My son has had probelms in the past of 'getting lost in the suffle'. He needs to have a focus or he's all over the place doesn't settle down easily and he's been removed from two school. Me, as his mother knows he's a good kid and he deserves more than those schools were giving him. I researched Montessori's, then went to Adobe and fell in love! I love patients and love they give their students it's amazing, anyone thinking about this school...go meet with them and then sign up fast because the spots go very quickly. My son's improvement is mind blowing to me, with the school working with us and us working with them it's changed my son's future...isn't that what evey parent wants!

My son started going to Adobe Montessori at the age of 3. I like their way of teaching where they learn things by doing it. I was amazed that before he was 4 he started reading simple words. He is 4 now and can do some addition too. I like the teachers who are doing great work. Learning is done in an easy and fun way. Best part is that my son loves his school.

I am very happy with the school.since its a montessori he is free to move around in class and explore his area of interest.The teachers are great and so is the staff.There are lots of daily activities and he enjoys going to school.If you are looking for a very strong academic school you might not feel satisfied but being a montessori it does not force a kid to learn to read or write immediately.The parents are also involved fully in their kids activities and overall its a very safe and loving environment.

My son has been in Adobe's preschool program for two years and it has been a great experience for him. He's learning so much and he has a great time. The teachers and staff are wonderful. I truly believe in the Montessori philosophy. I highly recommend this preschool as a loving, nurturing place for your children.
