    This school hits all the right notes but everything depends on who is the teacher in your child's "community". There seems to be some inconsistency in teacher quality and adhering to Montessori methodology. Growing pains? Overall though it is a good place for my kid.

    Fantastic teachers supportive administration and engaged parents make this a wonderful school. My children have thrived at LAMB and my oldest was well prepared both socially and academically for middle school.

    I can't say enough about this wonderful school. As a new parent in the Pre-school program I have been amazed at the outpouring of support LAMB families provide to one another. It's early in the school year yet however in just a few weeks we've met so many enthused and active parents teachers who love what they do and a culture that is nurturing and ideal for learning. We're very lucky to be hear and look forward to a phenomenal year.
