This is by far a great montessori school. My daughter is two and I already feel like she is getting a real education. You can definitely tell the difference between a preschool and a daycare. The facility is also very nice and well kept. It reminds me of a little school house and you can beat the playground. I also love my daughter's teachers they are very warm and caring. It's like you are family to them. I would definitely recommend it! They also have great festivals and activities every year.
This is a school where children grow and flourish my kid were speaking Spanish by kindergarten , the teachers were nice and it was a really supportive environment. The kids form real bonds that they will keep forever, We still meet once a year with parents we met at this school Love you all .keep up he good work.
My daughter was at a private christian school before finding this school. I am so happy I made the move. My daughter wakes up every morning looking forward to going to school even on weekends. The staff is friendly and loving towards the children. My daughter already has already learned more things here in just a few weeks then she did in a couple of years at her old school. The facility is clean and organized. I am extremely happy for my child to be here. Thank you MBA staff for making this experience a memorable one for my daughter. I can see how school can be fun while learning. By the way, she is already trying to speak spanish at home.
Family and friends run this school. Their friends kids in school also. Some of the teachers not made for teachiing (cold and uncaring). Some administrative staff not good in those positions either which often happens when you give jobs to family and friends. You'll feel like your kid entered Oz when u drop them off cause there's a big mystery about what goes on behind the curtain. Communication is horrible about what goes on in your child's day. My child learned more Spanish watching Dora the Explorer. Beware that Montessori may not be the best option for all kids. Kids are given so much power of choice and for kids who have a propensity to make the wrong choices this environment causes havoc! "your child didn't eat cause they chose to play" or "your child didnt chose to use the bathroom before nap time so he wets himself everyday". Some kids just will not do well with that kind of freedom of choice! It took months to undo the damage caused by this school!
My daughter was extremely shy and the staff at MBA were very patient and understanding with her and the progress my daughter has made, not only socially but in her overall education has far surpassed my expectations.
The school just hosted a parent night yesterday, it was amazing. I could not believe all the lessons my daughter knew how to do and how precise she was. She is learning so much and I can really see her growth since she has been attending. Their staff is also amazing. I really feel that they care about my child and want nothing but the best for all their students. I look forward to many years to come at MBA. Sincerely, A very proud parent
They do not watch the children! I was working on the roof at a bussiness next door and the kids were throwing rocks at me! When I brought it to the attention of one of the adults they didny seem to care
My son went to Pre-k and my daughter who is four is attending right now. I love the environment and teaching methods. The teachers are very caring. I would recommend the school to everyone that is looking for a wellrounded bilingual school. Grazias.
