Both of my boys attend TMA. I am thankful for so many things about the school – it’s hard to list them all. First of all, I love the way Montessori fosters independence and embraces the individuality of the child, rather than trying to conform everyone to a single expectation and pace. Secondly, I love the fact that TMA is truly a global community – and that in addition to learning academic skills – my boys are learning patience, kindness, and respect of others, other cultures, and their environment. Thirdly, I love the physical environment of the school – the way the classrooms feel like a home, and the way the huge, shaded yard, and gardens act as an extension of their classroom. I am also thankful for the patience of the teachers, and the way the administration has worked closely with us to help our children thrive in the Montessori environment. I can only hope I will ever feel this way about the future schools of my children. My only regret is not finding it sooner.
