Questionable teaching with unstable leadership. We were very unhappy with this school. Moved to public schools for more stability.

WE LOVE THIS SCHOOL!! My twin girls started at Longwood Montessori when they were four and did Pre-K & K grades there. We immediately fell in love with the teachers & their blend of caring and teaching. Each child is taken as a wholistic individual; Learning is approached in this way, within a loose framework of direction. My girls learned not only social principals of sharing & playing with others, but thorough basics of reading, writing, spelling & some math. When they left they were doing K to 1st grade level work, enthusiatically & happily! We didn't realize exactly HOW wonderful this school & its teachers was until we moved away this fall, & tried finding another like it, thinking all Montessoris similar in nature. They are not. I Longwood Montessori to be an oOUTSTANDING example of what teaching should be: Fun, Enlightening, & Intructive! THANK YOU, LMS!
