I am beyond pleased with Elijah’s academic progress since attending Nona Park Montessori School. Elijah started school with NPMS in 3rd grade. He could not read even close to grade level. Due to his autism, he struggled in every academic subject and needed assistance with everything. I am in tears just thinking about the progress he has made over the years with your school. Not only has his reading reached grade level, but he is also independently working on school work, completing tasks and making requests to learn about new things. I am overjoyed by the progress he has made and cannot wait to see the continued success he will have going forward through 8th grade. I am more than grateful that he has had the opportunity to be educated through NPMS. My words can never be enough to express my gratitude and appreciation for what you all have done for my son.

To Mrs. Shariq and Mrs. O'Neal,
Thank you for all the hard work and time you have taken to continue to teach our kids. Alexa has been enjoying her zoom class, it has helped keep a sense of normalcy in our routine. I know learning a new way of teaching in such short notice isn't easy and with that comes a lot of trial and errors, thank you for taking this change gracefully. Alexa was fortunate to have both of you, along with Ms. Jimenez as her teacher. I know that Alexa is prepared and ready to take on the next chapter of her academic education because of Montessori and the foundation that you have helped create. I thank you for all you have done.

Connor's nanny is an elementary teacher and she is absolutely blown away by how well he knows his ABC's and numbers, how verbal he is, and his genuine interest in learning. In all honesty, it is a true testament to how wonderful all the teachers at NPMS are!! We are so amazed at how well Connor is doing, even with the distance learning. Thank you so much!!

I want to express my deepest gratitude for what you've done for my daughter since the beginning of the school year. She came to your school excited, but cautious after a traumatic 5th grade experience in public school. Needless to say, that's heartbreaking for any parent.
In Mrs Simon's class, she has slowly regained her confidence and trust in other kids. It has been a safe and nurturing environment. She never complains about the academics. She is blossoming all around.
These past couple of weeks, she has brought home multiple drawings. They're incredible!! What's remarkable is that she's enjoying using pencils. Prior to starting school this year, we knew her pencil grip was unusual, but no teacher had ever said or done anything about it. But she HATED writing and drawing because it HURT. I don't know exactly what Mrs. Simons did, but obviously Juliana’s hand doesn't hurt any more - to the extent that she has found a creative outlet that wouldn't have been available to her, otherwise.
She smiles more. She's healing beautifully from her previous experience. School is a place she ENJOYS. Wow. Just wow. You have my deepest and forever gratitude.
