    My 3 1/2 year old has been at the school for about a year now and we've been very pleased. After having a terrible time with a small home Montessori school this place was a delight. My son loves it we've had no issues at drop-off (which we struggled with at his previous school). He's learned great social skills and self-discipline. Both of these are as important to future success as topical learning which we have no complaints with that either there. When he wasn't wanting to sit at circle time at first they were patient and loving with him. We appreciate the healthy hot lunch option and the sugar-free environment. We and he also love the extra-curricular activities that are offered for kids who stay at afternoon care. We'd rather do other things on the weekends with him then cart him to soccer. After my previous experience I thought child care and difficulty solving issues naturally went hand in hand but at NWMS my experience has been very different.

    Student to teacher ratio good. Approx. 1 to 8 for pre K and K. Elementary ratio for grades 1-6 approx. 1 to 12. Very diverse group of children with good classroom emphasis on cultural differences around the world. Lots of individual instruction with fundamentals of reading writing and math at the pre-K and K levels in a true Montessori environment (Teachers and aides are there to help guide the student and the students are free to move to various activities as their attention dictates). Many of the K level children read write and do math above 1st grade level! Affordable extended 'before and after' school care is available. Extracurricular activities such as ballet cooking art tumbling are available for additional fees that are based on month to month participation. High regards for quality of instruction and supervision provided by the school.
