    Monte Sano has been a life-saver for us as a family. I was recently home-schooling our boys and suddenly had to transition them back into public school. We were worried at first how that would pan out but because Monte Sano has such wonderful and understanding teachers they did just fine. They have done a great job of helping them transition and making them feel right at home. We really could not have asked for a better school. The teachers and staff are strict on a lot of things but work very hard to keep it as safe but still welcoming to parents as possible. We love this school!

    Monte Sano school is over 100 years old complete with high ceilings and polished wooden floors kept immaculate by dedicated staff. The remodeled school has modern classrooms and cafeteria that blends in beautifully with 20th century architecture. The teachers are proud of their school and their students and strive to improve educational excellence in spite of recent cuts by the governor and local board. They remain steadfast to their profession.

    We love Monte Sano. Two of our children have attended this school. The classes are small and the teachers are very caring. The school itself is historic and recently rennovated. We wish our kids still went there!
