    As a former middle school and high school teacher myself, I knew that traditional school would not be a fit for my family--I know that many other parents feel the same way but do not know what would be a better option---please consider Montessori and do the research.

    I looked everywhere to find a school for my son, and THANK GOODNESS I found this beautiful Montessori school and I happily drive 30 mins each way to ensure that my son (now 5 years old) will have the best possible experience and ed

    I was very clear that my son is autistic and went into details of what he can and cannot do, I was urged to proceed with enrollment as they have experience with autistic children. After paying $100 registration I was told they don’t have the space and aren’t able to accommodate him. I made it slide, I called just now to check availability for my 2yr old, and asked if i could use the previous registration and was told no, they literally tried to do the same thing, No confirmation if there is spac – show

    Our daughter attended the school year 21—22, the lower elementary teacher was disorganized and didn't seem to have control of the class. The administration and owner responses its the children lol. I laugh because parents blaming children for a teacher lack of organization and standard is wrong. There is an observation period before you enter the school, shouldn't the teacher and the director know if any children will be a problem. It's not one but multiple children the Director/owner had a nega – show

    As also shared by another reviewer, I had a very similar issue. Note: This was my son's first experience in school and away from us.

    We wanted to enroll him in the Toddler classroom. The school management, even knowing that the class was full already, made us going through all the enrollment process. Everything went well in the 4 visits, but they only told us after the last visit that the class was full. All that time was useless.

    A couple weeks after that we received an email from the head of

    Had an awful experience at this school. I will share in more detail, but also need to get it out there. They tried to mentally diagnose my child. We spent so much money on specialists having him evaluated and of course he is fine. Currently thriving in his new school. Please only go to this school if your child fits in their box. Any child that is smart, creative and independent thinker will not do well here.

    Our daughter started SFMA this year and she loves it! We are so grateful to have found this incredible school.

    My son started at South Florida Montessori Academy when he was three and is currently in his eighth year at this incredible school. To this day he gets up in the morning excited to learn. I have friends and family that send their kids to other local schools and can say with confidence that none rival SFMA. The school does not just borrow the Montessori name but is an AMI school that is operated to the highest standards. Martyna, the teachers and staff always exhibit professionalism but most impo – show

    My son attends the primary classroom. He is doing remarkable. His teachers are amazing. Montessori education is designed to focus on the whole child. “Children are exposed to lessons, activities and materials that build upon their skill set—they progress in their development as an individual.” The school is clean and pleasingly aesthetic.
    My son loves school and he is happy. That is very important for our family. The director of the school is very passionate. She is very immersed in her knowled

    My daughter has been attending since the beginning of the year, but in comparison to the VPK she attended last school year, this is such a fresh and positive change. I love the interest all the staff take on getting to know each individual student, the way that they teach and encourage change and learning, and the way that I have seen my daughter grow as an individual. Honestly hands down the best school experience so far. Would definitely recommend 10/10.

    This school is great. Been there for 6 years now and have my 3 kids. The classrooms have a low headcount so your kids pretty much receive a one on one private education. The kids are learning at their pace and their knowledge is actually above (1 to 3 levels) their public peers. You can really sign up your kids with your eyes closed.

    Great environment with highly trained teachers that implement true Montessori philosophy. Beautiful classrooms that are clean, organized, inviting and cozy!

    This school is amazing. My son absolutely loved the teachers and work he was doing. This school is AMI accredited and follow very very closely to original teachings of Maria Montessori. I was researching the best school for my son and this school kept coming up on top, we toured the school and we were sold. And it’s the best decision we made. Definitely recommend this school.

    My daughter started attending South Florida Montessori Academy when she was two years old, she is now 6 and I cannot be happier with her development throughout her attendance. My daughter is naturally very sensitive and shy but when she first started Ms. Norma made sure she felt welcomed and held her hand (literally) until she felt confident enough to interact on her own with her peers. I saw her bloom from being very shy to being very open and communicative. She then went on to elementary and – show

    Every child is assessed individually, therefore he receives an individualized curriculum to be able to advance successfully in all subject areas. The hands on learning experience brings the child to learn in a fun and concrete way. I recommend this school to anyone looking for a learning environment that considers not only a very advanced curriculum in academics, but also a place that offers the necessary skills for the child to become independent and flourish both socially and emotionally.

    SFMA is an absolute gem! We had tried 3 different schools for our kiddos when we moved to South Florida and were very concerned by the quality of the environment and education provided in each (let alone of those that we had just visited and run away from)… until we found the one!

    SFMA is the best decision we made for our children! Martyna, the director, the teachers, and the assistants are all outstanding. The care is individualized, the education approach and the materials are top-notch, an

    We LOVE this school. My kids enjoy their time at school and actually love going. The staff, from the administration to the classroom are all amazing and kind people who are truly invested in your child. They've been there for a long time, which I think is a sign of a quality place. This isn't one of those places where your child has a different teacher throughout the year!

    This school is truly a gem in South Florida and a true Montessori school. There's definitely a focus on quality vs quantity

    I had the school tour las month. Martyna was very knowledgeable and showed me the value of having my kid in an environment with great education and so close to my home. My son is enrolled now and can’t wait for him to start.

    The main treasure of the SFMA is it’s teachers. They are caring, supportive, respectful and are highly engaged with “their” kids. This pre-school was the first one for our son, moreover he started it without knowing a word in English. And it all has went so smoothly as it was possible because of the teachers’ and founders’ professionalism. There was the great combination of academic and personality progress. Our son was very happy in the SFMA where he has found so many friends and we miss it a l – show
