  • When I first moved to Springfield I enrolled my child in the local public school. After being dismayed by numerous negative and frustrating experiences with administration-driven issues, Nightingale Montessori provided a beacon of hope. My eldest enrolled there 8 years ago and, through development of her academic, cognitive and social skills, has shown me year after year that this was a great decision. I have since also enrolled my second child and my youngest will soon join his siblings in what I consider to be not only the best educational option in this area, but a model that should be replicated throughout our national system.
    As much as I have seen my own children benefit, I have watched their fellow students continually gain in self-confidence and ability as they learned to identify and pursue their own interests, motivated by sincere desire to learn and accomplish rather than merely comply with arbitrary and externally-mandated work. Acknowledging and building on this desire is key to this school's methods; faculty do not force children to work in lockstep, holding them back in certain areas and prodding them on in others to maintain some sort of industrialized rate of production. Rather, each child pursues an individualized work plan, racing forward in work in which they excel and taking a more measured pace on work requiring it.
    I have not seen a school either more successful with its students or with a more logically- and scientifically-developed methodology. This is a fantastic school.
