  • We have been at mapletree for 5 years and are thrilled with this school. It is clean,organized and the cirriculum follows your child and their ability, unlike traditional schools, where the child follows the cirriculum(which is geared to the average student.) If your 7 year old is ready to learn division...then your child is taught it! What a concept! Small class size allows for plenty of 1 on 1 and tailored education. I'm most impressed with the daily lessons/practices that stress kindness,compasson, and community effort in the classrooms. Plenty of community service projects and tons of extras like:yoga, music,nature education, spanish,drama, violin,etc make this school a wonderful choice for your child.

  • I recently visited Maple Tree Montessori Academy. I was impressed with how well organized the school was. I met with the pre-school teachers, and also observed the Elementary classrooms, for my older child. The staff were kind to us, as well as the children they were working with.
    They followed the Montessori philosophy completely throughout the classrooms. I am confident this will be a great place for my children to attend this upcoming fall.
