Testimonials

“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.”

 

“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.”

 

“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 

 

“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!”

“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.”

“My son was at MSR from the toddler program through the second year of primary. We moved to Atlanta, and his teachers at his new school ask how is he such a great reader to only be in kindergarten! I told them it was because of the awesome school he attended in Rome. His teachers give him first grade math and language work, and he is leaps and bounds ahead. We miss Montessori but know he had a great foundation there.”

 

“I began MSR in the toddler program, and I was in Ms. Kumar’s last Primary class. On my first day in her class, she discovered within three hours that I needed glasses, and it changed my life. As a +8 power in glasses, I desperately needed them. After the world wasn’t just a big shadow, I really began learning. Montessori made my childhood experiences fun, and I learned so much without even realizing it. There were some tears in Lower El as the work expectations increased, but I am so thankful my parents stuck it out and listened to Ms. Dolores and Ms. Diane that I could do the work. They believed in me when I didn’t even believe in myself, and I left Lower Elementary ready for the challenging program of Upper Elementary. That’s what we called the pinnacle where it all came together for some of the best days of my education so far. I’m still disappointed that there wasn’t an adolescent program for my group! I told Ms. Shemi to please begin the adolescent program again because she should offer the opportunity of a Montessori education for as many years as possible. When I graduated and went to Darlington, I really began to understand just how valuable my education had been–not just academically but because it taught me to be confident in my abilities and face the challenges of middle school and high school with the skills I needed. Now, I attend Belmont University where I am pursuing a Music Business degree. I am so grateful for my Montessori education, and my advice is to stay in the MSR bubble as long as you can! It’s a great place to learn!”

 

 

 

 

 

“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.”

“Best school in the world! My kids turned out pretty darn great and I credit MSR with most of it!”
