I love Hunter Mill Montessori School. I am so happy my daughter is making progress in her school. This school is very well organized and always opened to parents. Kids are very focused and serious when they work or play. Most of all, teachers are kind and gentle. we can feel their affection for kids. It's a great school. I

We 'shopped' around to find a right kind of Montessori school. After a month is when we came to know about this school and met Mrs.Cook. I had lots of questions when we started but the first week itself was a big relief. Our son loved the school - he wanted to be there even on a weekend (no exaggeration) This gave us a big relief. Coming to learning, its just been a few months but the amount of knowledge and confidence he has gained is something which is amazing. Lovely teachers and anytime you walk in you will see happy little faces. That says it all!

HMMS is a wonderful school. The teachers are all wonderful and enthusiastic about each child. The guidance they have given my son has been amazing. The opportunities for children here are endless.

We sent our son to Hunter Mill for three years and it was a fantastic experience. Everyone there is just wonderful. They are all very warm and really care for the children. We've been to other schools where the staff was cold to the children and parents. It was our son's home away from home. We saw him progress dramatically year after year. We are big believers in the Montessori method and our son is by far more prepared to go in to elementary school because of his experience at Hunter Mill.

Sending our children to Hunter Mill was one of the best decisions we've made. The environment is warm and nurturing, and there is a real sense of community among the families. The Montessori program is top-notch, and our kids continually surprise and amaze us with what they've learned and, more importantly, with the attitude of self-confidence, respect for others, and love of learning new things that has been cultivated in them by the Montessori methodology and the way it is lovingly implemented by their teachers. For a school of only about 40 students, there is an incredible amount of diversity, and it is celebrated by the children and their teachers. We thank Hunter Mill for giving our children a wonderful start to their school years. My only regret is that it ends at kindergarten - I wish my kids could stay until high school!

I worked at this school as an assistant and teacher in training. I am now a mother and teacher in California. I wish my daughter was attending Hunter Mill. I have unfortunately not found a school for my daughter to be near the standard of Hunter Mill. As a former employee, I know the 'behind the scenes' duties and standards and they are exemplary. Hunter Mill individualizes lessons to each childs needs and abilities. They are flawless in providing a safe and enriching environment. The teachers are accessible and flexible. I am proud to have been a part of their community and regret our move for one reason only - I feel our daughter has missed a great early childhood opportunity in Northern Virginia. Hunter Mill stands out !

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
