My children loved the Academy for Children. The teachers are excellent. My children learned to work independently and to find joy in learning. I highly recommend the school. Sharon Boeshans

Excellent teachers, excellent support staff and very excellent support staff. It's a Montessori school that practices and apply the teachings consistenty. My children are excited to go and think of it like their second home.

I attended this school a while back and even though I was there as a 2-5 year old, I remember it as one of the best schools I have ever been to. I learned many useful subjects such as French, and I credit this school as to why I read at a much higher level than my peers. The Academy is definitely worth it.

This school cannot be matched in the FM area. Dropping my children off each day is like taking them to their second home as the Academy is part of our family.

Outstanding daycare and school in the Montessori tradition. My son has thrived in this environment. The staff is excellent. You could not find a better environment for your child.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
