I have always heard great things about Montessori school so we decided to put our oldest son when he was 3. He absolutely loved it and would tell me how much he loves school! Even on his days off, he said he wanted to be at school! I was so impressed. I did well at school but never loved it the way he does. I am so impressed with how a Montessori education has really instilled in him the love of learning! In fact, when it was time to consider putting him in school at Beavercreek Schools, I decided to sit in on the classroom at the school where he would be the following year. Although the teacher was great, he was so far ahead of what they were teaching a year later, that I didn't think it would be a good fit as he would get too bored and probably not love school anymore like he did. Then I sat in on the Montessori room he would be in the following year. I saw how some kids were working while they sat on the floor, some on desks, some with the teachers., independently and in groups. It actually brought tears to my eyes. I wished I had gone to a school like that. I thought this is like homeschooling but without having to do it yourself! It's personalized, individual instruction in a group setting with an amazing student - teacher ratio. My son is now still here in the 3rd grade and my daughter is in pre-K here too. They both still love their school and truly love learning. I am so happy we chose to bring them here.
