Because of moving cities, we had our two daughters at 4 different preschools. Montessori Family School was BY FAR the best, really an amazing and special place. The teachers are incredible, smart, compassionate, energetic people. They pour themselves into the children and the classrooms. The afterschool program was just as good as the day class. Our daughter came out of two years there a full year and a half ahead in academics (I know, it's just kinder and first, but still!) and creative, curious, and confident. For our family, this school was expensive, but truly truly worth every penny.

Montessori Family School is an amazing place. The teachers are kind and caring and the community is so much like a big family.

My 3 year old son is in the Redwood class and we love his teachers. They are so patience and kind with him, and he isn't the easiest child to deal with! I've also noticed that he has started to learn a lot. I was amazed when he came home the other day and showed me the African and North American content on the map!

Our child attended upper elementary and middle school at MFS. UE teachers were generally good and caring, but one was particularly insensitive to kids. Middle school was a disaster due to complete lack of structured learning and an unwillingness to recognize that self-directed learning does not work for all kids. Three kids, including ours, were left struggling to catch up virtually on their own. It was an extremely stressful experience for our child and for us parents alike. We left mid-year.
