Our daughter is a student at the Montessori Peace School and we can’t begin to express how pleased we are with MPS. So many schools claim excellence. The Montessori Peace School IS excellent. Every aspect of its program is designed to promote the intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth of the children in a loving, fun- filled and beautiful environment. Miss Sangeet and Mrs. Cheng are outstanding teachers. Each child in their classroom receives the individual attention they require to reach their full academic potential. The school’s rich Montessori curriculum incorporates art, music, nature and cultural studies as well as language arts, mathematics, science and practical life.

As important as academics for us, however, is MPS’s attention to the development of the whole child. Respect, courtesy, tolerance and peacefulness are taught in the classroom and demonstrated daily by the teachers. The constant exposure to these values has had a profound and positive impact on our daughter’s character. She has learned self –awareness and self-control through Yoga instruction. She has also learned the value of nurturing her body and health through healthy eating – at MPS the foods provided for children’s snacks are organic, and chosen for nutritional benefit as well as the children’s enjoyment.

For families seeking an outstanding Montessori Program for their Pre-school and Kindergarten aged children, we can’t think of a better recommendation than MPS. However, the best recommendation comes not from us, but from our daughter. She is excited and happy to go to school every day.

This school is wonderful! The two lead teachers Ms. Sangeet and Mrs. Cheng are the perfect combination and are dedicated with all of their hearts to the children. The classroom is a nurturing environment and with the addition of yoga, music, gardening and peace education the learning space is truly unique. Montessori Peace School has nurtured our children’s growth with consciousness and compassion and since our girls have attended this school they have grown more expressive and seem completely happy and comfortable in their environment.

Our children have blossomed in Miss Sangeet ‘s and Mrs. Cheng’s classroom. Whether it is a new book to read to us, news of their class’s garden or recent experiment, a story to tell about one of the many historical figures they studied, or new song or yoga pose they learned during circle time, they are always eager to share what they are learning each day! Miss Sangeet and Mrs. Cheng are seasoned Montessorians who integrate a unique peace curriculum that teaches compassion, community, peace making and peace keeping life skills.

In addition to the close adherence to the Montessori method, there are several reasons we are so fond the Montessori Peace School: good parent-teacher communication, a community feel amongst the families and staff, a professional yet loving approach that addresses the needs of the whole child-cognitive, social, emotional and physical. We have known Miss Sangeet for over 4 years and were thrilled when she announced the opening or her own school with Mrs Cheng. We would highly recommend, without reservation, the Montessori Peace School.

Ms. Sangeet has taught our oldest son for all three years of his Primary Montessori program, and we could not be more pleased with the education he has received. He has thrived in the small, orderly classes and has benefited from so much individual attention. Our second son has been with Ms. Sangeet for the past two years and will be continuing his third year in her class. Our third son will now be joining the class as a first year and we look forward to seeing him flourish in her classroom environment. Ms. Sangeet is true to the spirit and letter of Maria Montessori’s approach. We are confident that you will be as impressed with Montessori Peace School as we have been.

My three year old daughter had been at another Montessori school . Recently we transitioned her to Montessori Peace School and she LOVES it. I had checked out so many schools in the area when I was thinking of moving her … and when I found MPS – I just knew it was perfect. Immediately – my ‘hard to warm up’ child was comfortable there…and she has been happy as a clam ever since.

The school family is so wonderful. From the first day – parents of the other children made an effort to make us (my husband, my daughter and me) feel welcome – by going out of their way to stop and talk – email, etc. It is such a fabulous community.

And the empowerment they give the children is so wonderful. In just 2 months, I have noticed so much development in my daughter. Miss Sangeet and Mrs. Cheng are the most wonderful educators — I just can’t say enough good things.
