“There’s no better environment for a young impressionable mind than the Montessori School of Rome. The self-guided discipline the students receive here serve them for a lifetime. My children have benefited greatly from their Montessori foundations, and when I work with these students, I benefit as well. I’m amazed by their curiosity, wonder and appetite for learning new things.
The Montessori teachings are for every child to lay the foundation of learning. In a society of dependent thinkers, the method creates independent thinkers which is invaluable to society.”
Jennifer Hillegas Mother of current primary student
“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.”
Mary Beth Cauthen Mother of two Montessori graduates
“Best school in the world! My kids turned out pretty darn great and I credit MSR with most of it!”
Evelyn Schlitz Evelyn Schlitz, 4th year Upper Elementary student
I love school. I love school so much because of my teachers. My teachers were very kind, friendly, careful, fun and even more things. I go to MSR (Montessori School of Rome) which is the best and I think will always be the best school I will ever go to. When I was told I was going to move, I was excited but very sad that I had to move schools. Montessori School of Rome is my second home. Even when it gets hard, I love it. I like how we can be on our own level, and we have responsibility. At our school, we are taught how to be when we grow up.
The best teachers I had were in this school. I love our principal. She is funny, and she likes us. Some of my best friends are here. Our teachers guide us through and give us lessons when we need them. No only is this place my home, it’s the place I love to be. My favorite place there is the library. I love the librarian, Ms. Carol. She lets me come a lot. I also just love being around her.
So I would love to stay at this school. Thank you, Ms. Shemi for making a small place something big.
Suzannah Peek Former MSR student
“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.”
Bridget Ivey Montessori Graduate
“I enjoyed being able to work at my own pace without feeling pressured. After I graduated from MSR and went to middle school, I was surprised at how far ahead I was in my studies. Also, I noticed my work ethic was strong, and my thinking patterns were more independent than some of my classmates. Recently, I was admitted to the McWhorter School of Pharmacy, and I know that my foundations will help me during the difficult journey ahead!”
Nancy Singh Mother of two
“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.”
Shay Ray Mother of MSR graduates and grandmother of current student
“One of the best decisions I ever made in my life was sending Braylen to the Montessori School of Rome. Such a blessing to have him taught and loved by such wonderful people. “
“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
Anna Loyd 2009 Graduate
“The friendships and memories I made during my nine years at Montessori will last a lifetime. I will always cherish the hands on experience and amazing atmosphere Montessori offered; there’s no place like it! Being able to say I have had the same best friend for fifteen years through Montessori is quite remarkable. I can’t thank the incredible teachers enough for pushing me to excel and doing my best. Attending Montessori was a wonderful experience that I will always appreciate.”
