    I love the culture and climate at our school which is also one of the best schools in the city with some of the best teachers and extremely engaged families.

    This is an incredible school with dedicated Montessori teachers. The families are wonderful and the community works together to really get things done. The only issue I have is the principal. I believe in Montessori education. That's why I chose to become a part of this community. Although the principal has a background in teaching Montessori I believe his is taking the school in a very traditional direction. We want our children to be well-rounded I don't see the principal supporting that.

    This school is a great enviroment. We have so many caring volenteers and staff that help with everything. We have a few special needs kids and they do great at this school. There is always help for them and tutoring for anyone. There are many gifted students at mam and the teachers are amazing. They take care of the students and are always there for the well being of everyone. They sometimes feel more like friends than teachers because you feel like you can talk about alot of things with them. The teachers here work so hard and we students learn alot. Homework is reasonable not to little not to much. We work hard here and it feels like one big family. We get to socalize with friends while working and have alot of freedom well earned. Thought there is alot of challenging work we are well prepared for it all! Though this school has a lot there are some things I would like to see more of. I would like more options for lunches and mabye more of a variety of programs. (Such as sports music acting art etc etc) Over all I love this school and have been it my whole life!

    I have two children at Maryland Avenue Montessori school. I am also a former staff member. It has been a great environment for my children. I would recommend parents visit and see if this school is a great fit for your family too.

    I have 2 children at Maryland and they are thriving. The teachers are top notch and the principal is great. There are lots of chances to be involved in the school and lots of parents and community members can be found working with children or working in or around the school and grounds. This is a school full of love. The children can be children here and have a happy healthy school experience.

    I love this school! It has been a great place for my son and my daughter starts there in the fall. Superior teaching staff and educational model.

    Maryland Ave. is a wonderful school. I am a teacher there and unfortunately this will be my last year here because of the ending of the traditional teaching program. Teaching at Maryland Ave has been such a wonderful experience for me that it has motivated me to seek montessori educational training so that I can come back to this school and teach here again.

    The school is located on the East side of the city near the University and several hospitals. It is a beautiful location and accessible. We are pleased with and excited by the academic progress of our son since beginning Maryland Avenue's Montessori program (fall of 2004). The classrooms are warm and inviting and every experience I have had with any staff member has been wonderful. My husband and I really vacillated on sending our son to an MPS school- now we are struggling with what to do if we decide to move out of the district boundaries. We highly recommend Maryland Avenue and have nothing but exceptional views of this school!

    We were hesitant at first about sending our children to MPS but we are thrilled with Maryland Avenue Montessori. The teachers are highly educated and respected by parents and students. Our daughter is flourishing!

    I couldn't be happier with the education and care my children are getting in the Montessori program at Maryland Avenue. In addition the school is clean well organized and calm. The children are polite and considerate. My daughter loves the after school program.

    I have two children in the Montessori program. I am delighted with the program. The staff is terrific and instill a true love of learning in their pupils. The parents are becoming a cohesive helpful body supporting the school and the staff. Milwaukee is fortunate to have this program within MPS. I would encourage any parent considering a Montessori education to look closely at Maryland Ave. You will find a warm welcoming and strong academic program.

    If you want a family admosphere for your child this is a great place to send him/her. My children are well known with the teachers and staff there; this is another home for them. I'm also impressed with the academics my children are learning which pulls up their self esteem and self worth. I highly recommend this school for any child.
