    Our Family wants to share our Thank You to Our Child's K-2nd grade teacher Miss Lalitha! There are not enough words to describe our gratitude and thanks for all you have done for our 9 year old.Thank you for Believing in our son. and not letting him slip through the cracks in "the system". Thank you for Nurturing his knowledge and not giving up on him as so many teachers have. You are a Gem! You have given our child the tools and the foundation for an amazing future. For those reading this tribute who are not familiar with this school they have new owners. We have been there for a year and a half and came on board when the prior owners owned it and took enrollment for kids up to 2nd grade or I guess age 8 or nine. Luckily and fortunately we got in Just in time one and a half years ago. The licensing is changing as of sometime in June 2014 and this means the highest grade and age will be Kinder and 6 years old. The staff is Amazing! We wish the new owners nothing but the Best. We will miss Everyone! Thank you to all who made our family feel at home and gave our child a great education.

    I am a fairly new parent at West Hills Montessori but felt compelled to write a review. My son is 3 1/2 and loves school. He is engaged and learning everyday. The teachers are wonderful open and knowledgable. The director is very hands on and always available. The owners of the school are involved and often present. They know the children by name and develop sound relationships with them. I am a teacher and that is the only reason I did not give WHM 5 stars; that would mean flawless perfect and I have never seen a school as such. I am very happy with the organization nurturing and teaching my son is receiving. If you are looking for an engaging and enriching place for your child to begin their school experience come visit.

    When my husband and I were looking for a school for our son 4 years ago we looked at close to ten schools in the area and finally decided to place him at the school currently named West Hills Montessori. We loved that we had found a school where our son would learn to learn. We have been impressed with his academic and developmental progress. The teachers are caring and knowledgeable. Since then our daughter attended that school from age 2 and we are planning to start our third child at 18 months. The school changed ownership over a year ago and I can honestly say that the new owners (Jeff and JoAnne) are constantly looking to better the school and care about the children. My daughter has been learning French from Jeff and would never leave the school without giving JoAnne a hug. I have been happy with the teachers and the skills imparted to my children during their stay at West Hills Montessori.

    Over the past 6 years I have sent my 2 children to West Hills Montessori. Both have thrived here gaining more than enough academic skills and knowledge to prepare them for elementary school (my oldest is now in a magnet and has been doing great!) The teachers at this school have been wonderful! They helped develop and support both my children s academic and social confidence. My kids always attended the summer program too. They loved the fun activities geared towards learning (i.e. mad science laboratory) and the water play days. The school also puts on seasonal shows that the students perform in which has been such a highlight for me as a parent! The owners Jeff and JoAnne have put an incredible amount of time and effort into making many improvements around the school. They both are very involved and really care about each and every student. I would recommend to any parent that they check out West Hills Montessori. Over the years my children have been so happy at this school. We will be sad when it is time to move on!

    My daughter is going to this school since she was 2.5 years old and that time school was under different management. We have seen the wonderful changes done my new management over the last few years. We love the curriculum summer programs and all other activities done throughout the year. Staff is wonderful and we will miss everyone as my daughter is joining 1st grade in magnet school.
