Testimonials

“Montessori School of Rome has been such a blessing to our family! Owen has been at MSOR for two years. When I was offered a new job in Floyd County last year, my first thought was “Who will take care of my son?” Several of my friends children went to MSOR, but my husband and I were very worried about the change. On our first visit we were welcomed with smiles and reassured that Owen would be taken care of. We could not ask for a better educational experience for our son! We love and appreciate our MSOR family!”

“We love the Montessori way of learning.  Our son has been attending for two years now, and he loves his teacher and his school.  We love the way that the individual child’s interests are cultivated and each child learns self discipline and respect for others.”

“I attended Montessori from Primary to Upper Elementary fifth year. I have found that the skills I acquired at MSR have been extremely beneficial to me throughout high school. One of my favorite memories was working through any issues with fellow classmates on the peace rug. Now that I’m older, I realize how valuable the curriculum is at MSR. From an early age, the classroom is divided between subjects such as math, language, and practical life tasks. I am so thankful for my time at Montessori, and I will carry the memories with me forever.”

“I can tell you that MSOR prepared Nick incredibly well for a rigorous middle school and high school curriculum.  I expected a hard landing when he moved from the small world of Montessori to a larger, more traditionally structured school, but things went smoothly on every level.  The academic foundation, work habits and social skills that he got from Montessori continue to serve him well in the classroom and beyond.”  Katherine Powell, mother of MSR graduate 

 

“Having graduated from Montessori, I am aware nearly every school day of a keen desire to return to a Montessori-type environment.  I had some of the greatest teachers I will ever have while at MSR.  I was wonderfully prepared for my middle and high school careers.  It is impossible for me to fully put into words the quality and the well-rounded nature of the education I received from Montessori.”

 

“Montessori is the root of my education.  I learned things much differently than students in traditional classes.  The teacher/student interaction has helped spur my success.  I learned math facts, geography, and many other things using manipulatives.  I learned how to step up and not be too shy in front of crowds, and I learned how to voice my opinion without being concerned about others’ opinions of me.  This has helped me succeed both in the classroom, and beyond, and for this I am grateful.”

Growing up at the Montessori School of Rome shaped me into the person that I am today. At MSOR I learned the value and power of knowledge; I now love to learn, and I yearn for answers. This has set me apart from many of my peers in high school and has contributed very much to my academic success. I also learned from a very young age how to be an independent student, and this has been invaluable in my high school experience. Additionally, growing up in such a diverse environment gave me a realistic view of the world and all of the different kinds of people and cultures that fill it; this helps me to work well with all kinds of people. I am forever grateful to have been blessed with a Montessori education.

“We cannot thank the Montessori School enough for teaching our kids and advancing their knowledge base. Both of our kids learned how to read and write and got a lot of exposure to Science and Geography, which they would not have gotten anywhere else. Ms. Angie, Ms. Ana Maria, Ms. Ginny, and Ms. Pam are all amazing teachers and we will remember them always. We deeply appreciate all their love, compassion, and commitment to our kids.”

 

“I will always remember getting to pick the sun on my birthday and doing the birthday walk! I also remember the peace rug and working out difficulties with my classmates. This approach helped me to problem solve and build relationships. I bonded with my classmates in such a unique environment that has led to friendships which have lasted through the years. Doing the golden chain in the lobby was one of my favorite memories!”

“The commitment of the teachers as they guide our children toward the path of a love of learning, and an environment devoted to diversity, curiosity, and creativity are just a few reasons we love this school. To watch our daughters delight in a discovery over something they have learned, or take pride in an accomplishment and then to take that confidence and use it to help other students in nurturing, encouraging ways is simply beautiful to observe as a parent. Our girls are growing into thoughtful, creative, caring citizens of the world, and we are grateful to Montessori School of Rome for fostering an environment for that to happen.”
