“I’m not sure where to begin – or, end, for that matter…the words “thank you” and “appreciation” cannot even begin to express the gratitude that I feel towards you regarding your role not just in John’s education at Midwest but also in the shaping of him as a person.  I am in awe of your ability to instill a sense of respect in John not just for his teachers and other students but for himself as well.  Your passion for teaching is reflected in John’s enthusiasm for learning:  You are going to be an incredibly hard act to follow.  As I can’t imagine a person I would feel more comfortable entrusting with the precious task of guiding him through his early education.  Thank you so very much.”


With love,
Susan and Jim Nelson

I am so glad we made the decision to join MMDS when we came over in 2010 and even happier that we decided to fulfill Max’s dream of being a kindergartner at Midwest.  The experience has been invaluable to both him and us, as parents, and we only have great things to say about the school and the incredible staff you have.”

All the best,
Linda and Mark

051“This is just a small token of our gratitude for the role that you have played in Brian’s three years at Midwest Montessori.  As our first introduction to the school, I credit you with conveying the values and qualities of the environment in such a way that we had absolute confidence in our decision to send Brian to Midwest.  That, and your infinite support over the past three years have made the time spent at this school a wonderful experience in education.  Thank you so very much.”

With love,
Pat, Jose and Brian

Butterfly Release 2012 089“I have had 2 children attend this school for 3 years through Kindergarten and I have two currently in the program as 3 yr olds who will continue through their Kindergarten year as well and I cannot say enough about this fantastic school. It is a true Montessori approach with wonderfully compassionate, patient and professional instructors. The support staff is the truly amazing and makes you feel as though the school is an extension of your own family. They have a “no fund-raising” policy which prevents the feeling of obligation you get at many other private schools (even at the pre-school level). My children love attending school at Midwest and my older two have expressed a desire to go back and visit regularly. The school has prepared my 1 st graders well for their public grade school experience and they were above average in their math and reading skills upon finishing their Kindergarten year at Midwest. I feel so fortunate to have my children enrolled at Midwest Montessori Children’s House and look forward to the next few years as a parent at this truly magnificent school.”
