We have three kids in this school and are very happy there. The new Valleybrook campus has an awesome "natural" playground and an environmentally friendly "green" roof, while the older Hillbrook campus has a beautiful large wooded playground. The school is run as a parent cooperative, so it is governed by the parent body; but day-to-day teaching and administration is by highly qualified staff. Parents are expected to volunteer a significant amount of time during school year, which ensures all families are actively involved in the school. Also, given the highly educated and committed families, the school benefits greatly from the time and talents of the parents.
Our two children attend MSNV Valleybrook. Not only is it a delightful setting, but the teachers are amazing. Montessori methods and curriculum are fully implemented. This is working for our children.
While the school is a bit expensive, I have found it to be price comparative amongst its competitors. My child has been attending here for 2 years now and we plan on keeping her there throughout her elementary years. The principal, office staff and teachers are the best quality any school could get. They are very attentive, listen to parents and childrens' needs, they have an open door policy and are very family oriented. My daughter at the age of 4 is writing and I attribute this to the quality of the teacher's. They are on top of the children needs and allow for different style learners to explore their potentials. We highly recommend this school and are planning on enrolling our second one as soon as he is age appropriate. The school has two campuses (one in Annandale Hillbrook and the Valleybrook campus which just open this past year).
