Read what some of our alumni families are saying about their experience at Columbus Montessori.

The school and the entire Columbus Montessori community have a special place in my heart for what they have provided to my children and so many others: a firm foundation which has empowered them to be all they can be! Columbus Montessori with the study habits she learned at Columbus Montessori, she has continued to excel. She went on to do very well in her ninth grade IEP classes and ended the year with high honors, a great accomplishment. We are grateful to Columbus Montessori and feel that the institution played a huge part in her continued success.

We left the Center with a very happy, excited, confident adolescent who was, and is, ready for the world and all of its challenges. Our family life has settled down and we couldn’t be happier. We couldn’t have done without the wonderful staff at Columbus Montessori.

“Alexis’s educational experience before Columbus Montessori was desolate. She had little self-esteem and was failing in school. Everyone was trying to help Alexis but our home was in chaos. At the end of every evening, we would all be frustrated as it took hours to help her get her homework done.

Alexis came to Columbus Montessori in sixth grade with learning challenges and special needs. In this new environment, Alexis felt that everyone was helpful and caring and felt like part of another family. It took her a while to understand how Columbus Montessori gave the children individual time to work on projects and homework and that the students were in the driver seat, in charge of their learning. Once she caught on, her progress increased rapidly. It was phenomenal! The testing kept showing that she was excelling in leaps and bounds. In that time period, she improved more on standardized testing than any child they have ever had.

I believe Columbus Montessori gave Alexis a great foundation for her future. The school helped her through those three years and she graduated from the eighth grade as a very positive, confident, happy adolescent full of self worth and confidence. If the Center had a high school, Alexis would still be there!

She has done very well adjusting to a local public high school, and with the study habits she learned at Columbus Montessori, she has continued to excel. She went on to do very well in her ninth grade IEP classes and ended the year with high honors, a great accomplishment. We are grateful to Columbus Montessori and feel that the institution played a huge part in her continued success.

This is a wonderful school! My daughter came here inthe summer of 2004, attended Kindergarten and is now attending elementary summer camp.  At CMEC, the teachers worked with my daughter to channel her spirit into challenging educational and creative works. She has improved her self-control and conflict management skills and has learned to work more independently. I’m pleased with the math, reading and writing skills she has developed. She has learned about science, the arts and other cultures. The Montessori method emphasizes respect for self, others and the environment and I’m very impressed with the way CMEC ensures this philosophy is present in everything they do. If the Montessori method is right for your child, this school is the best in the class!”

We send our daughter to CMEC, and we are impressed daily by the quality of care and intellectual stimulation the teachers provide. CMEC has taught us a lot about our daughter’s immense capacity for independence and her level of sophistication. It’s also taught us a lot about how important self-respect and social skills are to any educational program.” – Anonymous

My son has been attending CMEC for about 2 years now. This is a great school. The school really focuses on self respect, respect for others, and being a leader. I love the fact that anytime during the day I can visit the school and have lunch, or snack and feel welcomed. I love the teachers, staff, security of the school, and playground. When I send my son off to school every morning I have peace of mind that he is learning, and having fun in a safe and comfortable environment.”

“Top notch all the way. My child is thriving both emotionally and intellectually. The teachers provide him the tools and direction, but he discovers and learns along the way. He has been empowered to learn at his pace, rather than being held back or pushed to move ahead. All of this, in a diverse ‘real world’ environment. Thank you CMEC. ”
