My experience with BMS started when I worked for a year as a teacher's assistant in the 6-9 (1st-3rd) classroom before returning to graduate school. The wonderful outcomes I saw there persuaded me to put my son on the waitlist for the preschool just two weeks after he was born and now as he is finishing his second semester at BMS we are seeing so much fruit from the teachers' patient and consistent approaches. One thing I would point out is that BMS stands out even among Montessori programs. Beyond the native virtues of the Montessori method (which is truly the way to go especially for young children) BMS has strong music instruction and Spanish starting at age 3--taught in a way appropriate to the children's absorbent minds (not as a "foreign language" but through small-group immersion experiences like stories games and songs). BMS is also more "academic" than some Montessori schools; in the 6-9 classroom children do independent research science weekly literature circles and math. I saw them rapidly progress in mathematics. I saw such a range of personalities thrive and there is no better environment for cultivating native curiosity self-direction and self-control.
