    "Our son has been loving his experience at Austin Montessori School!  We were a bit nervous sending him out of our home bubble during the pandemic, but also knew he was reaching the age where he needed the type of social environment and interactions that being at home couldn't provide.  He started this past spring in the Youngest Children's Community right when he turned 16 months old and has been learning and experiencing so many things like painting, learning how to dress himself, and toileting.  We are so thrilled with the guides and staff at AMS, who strive to create a safe and nurturing environment for all the children.  Enrolling him at AMS has been our best parenting decision so far!"

    "Our son started at the Youngest Children’s Community when he was 16 months old. Over the past 9 months, he has gained the skills of toileting, dressing himself, focusing on the activity he is engaged in, communicating his needs, and eating independently. He tries to help with a lot of household chores such as cutting fruits, cleaning windows, preparing the dinner table, making the bed, which shows that he is becoming more independent with each day.  He is also learning social skills of giving space to others, sharing, patiently waiting for his turn, and expressing compassion towards other people and animals. We are very grateful to the guides and staff at AMS, who provide the children with a safe and nurturing environment, which fosters the development of life skills, independence, and language."

    "After visiting the prominent Montessori’s in the greater Austin area, Austin Montessori School stood out bar none. From the exquisite classrooms to the transparent administration and intricately trained guides, it fulfills exactly what we hoped for in a school and more. It is the level of community and parent partnership that has kept us here year after year. We’re equipped to navigate through the development and milestones our child experiences as a partnership and support team. We couldn’t have asked for a better fit and exceptional all-around environment to be a part of."

    "Austin Montessori School was an easy choice for our family. We toured some of the best Montessori schools in Austin and the surrounding areas. Austin Montessori School continued to rise to the top amongst all the rest. We were certain our children would receive a true Montessori education that is authentic and models the pedagogical practices of Maria Montessori herself. We have two children, both who have attended Austin Montessori School. They have learned so much in such a short amount of time. Not only are the basic tenants of math, reading, writing, etc. taught, but it is achieved by taking a thorough dive into the understanding and theory of each subject. Thank you to all the guides and administrators of AMS for your dedication and passion towards the pursuit of an authentic Montessori experience."

    "In early 2020, we decided to relocate from the west coast. We hoped to find a highly regarded and AMI-recognized school that went through middle school. After months of searching, we decided on Austin Montessori School and moved our family to Austin. It was a leap of faith to move during a pandemic, but now a year later, we couldn’t be more pleased with our choice. We have three young daughters, all attending AMS, and we are continuously impressed with the curriculum, the guides’ dedication to the Montessori method, and the transparency and strong leadership of the staff. We look forward to being a part of the AMS community for many years to come."

    "We have so many wonderful things to say about Austin Montessori School. When our child says, "I am excited to go to school" (even on the weekend), it should sum it all up. He is excited to start the day at AMS, and at pick up, we get to hear from him about all the fun things that he got to do in detail. One example that strengthened our commitment to AMS was when our child was 19 months old. He started at the Youngest Children's Community, and the first day when he got home, he told us he did not want to wear a diaper and was ready to be toilet independent. Every child innately knows to be in the moment, but it takes someone with a lot of patience and training to notice it, nurture it and let them grow and flourish. When we see our child sing, dance, and enjoy the moment, we attribute it to his guides at AMS, who have nurtured him very carefully, listening to all his physical, social, and emotional needs. Seeing him blossom over the last 2+ years, we are confident and very thankful to AMS that his foundation to being a good human has been laid."

    "Austin Montessori School is home to our four children. It’s hard to put into words the special place AMS has been for our family. Just walking or driving around the campus, you know this is a community where every member of the staff is there not only for the child but perhaps more importantly because they want to be. We have watched ourselves change as parents in many ways, thanks to the lessons we’ve learned from AMS. The connection to our kids is on a different level where we can offer them ways to find solutions to many of life’s dilemmas on their own. We have four incredibly different children, and all of them are met where they are at, challenged socially and academically. In this time of uncertainty, the one thing we are certain of is our kids, and our family is where we belong."

    "We love the Montessori methodology since it’s an education pursuing self-motivated growth for children. So, we decided to send our girls to Montessori school even though there are limited resources in China. We moved from China to Austin in 2016 when our girls turned five years old and 2.5 years old. Before our big move, we did lots of research about Montessori schools in the USA and Austin. Austin Montessori School turned out to be our first choice because of its history, reputation, curriculum till middle school, and it is an AMI recognized school. We feel so lucky that we got the spots for our two girls, and we have stayed here for five years already! We can see our daughters blossoming with guidance on how to be better human beings for this world: peaceful, thankful, self-motivated, and confident girls who are eager for each school day. More than that, the AMS community provided tons of learning opportunities for parenting, which is so helpful for us. There is never too much to learn, and we love to grow all together."

    "We have sent our four children to AMS for over 8 years.  AMS has been much more than just a school to us, it is a partnership with the administration and staff to help us guide our children to be critical thinking, kind, caring, self-motivated, and problem-solving humans.   The school is not only instrumental in the growth of our children in all aspects from academics to social relationships but also helped to make us better parents.  Being a part of this community has helped us to form our family culture, be better listeners and communicators. This is where our children continue to want to be and where we want to continue to be a part of the community for the school, staff, and other families.  AMS is much more than a school, it is a community."

    "We have been part of the AMS community for 5 years. It has been wonderful seeing our girls’ passion for learning grow in this environment. We see how they empathize and have compassion for other people, how they want to help in our community and at home, and their development of independent thinking while learning to be part of a team. They are challenged at school and are responsible for planning and following through with their work. Academically, there are no limits to what they can learn because of their grade, if they are ready to advance they can. The guides and staff are passionate about what they do and we have enjoyed working with them. Most importantly, our kids are happy and excited to go to school."

    "We chose Austin Montessori School for both of our children, not only the school has provided an environment for our children to explore their individualities. But equally, as important, we as their parents have also been able to rediscover ourselves as adults through the Montessori parenting support provided by the school and the school parent community, allowing us to grow with our children together!"

    "We couldn't be happier with our decision to send our children to Austin Montessori School. Every decision made by the school is done with great intention, resulting in excellence in every way. Our children love going to school, and often miss it on weekends and holidays. Their brains are constantly challenged in fun and engaging ways while the nurturing community provides an excellent environment to grow emotionally as humans. We are especially grateful for the care and thoughtfulness that went into planning during a pandemic, providing our children with a wonderful and safe in-person learning environment."
