“Although my husband grew up in a Montessori environment, International Montessori Schools was my first experience with the Montessori teaching style and culture. It has been amazing to see our son develop independence and empathy in such a safe and nurturing environment. From his first week in the Toddler class, the staff have engaged intentionally with our family to meet our needs and encourage our son’s development. Now that he is in the Primary class, we’re experiencing growth through mentoring as older students are modeling behavior and learning alongside our son. It’s a joy to see him looking up to older students, but subsequently, encouraging younger students (by) living out the behavior that’s been modeled for him.”

"Healthy environment for kids offering good care and attention. My daughter has been at this school for 2 years now and as parents we are assured that she is in good hands. There are different materials, books, music and outdoor activities for kids for their overall development here."

“Our first grader has nothing but fond memories of her years at International Montessori School. She often comments on how much she loved being able to work peacefully and to learn freely, surrounded by teachers who treated her with so much kindness and respect. Attuned teachers who really saw her and who challenged her while honoring her learning style and pace.
During her Kindergarten years at International Montessori Schools, our daughter’s academic and leadership skills soared. She felt confident in her well-known, beloved environment to deepen her understanding of the world, her reading and writing skills and her abstract reasoning in math. As one of the oldest children in her class, she also got to experience modeling what she had learned to the younger ones, which helped her grow in self esteem. It was clearly a fundamental year that prepared her well for the Elementary years. As the Admissions Counselor at her current school said: “She was more than ready”
“I also wanted to let you know that we love having Sahil at IMS. I feel at ease when he goes because he is learning so many things and his teachers are great. So thank you!”
We moved to IMS Paoli this past year with our three young children - and we could not be happier. The teachers are amazing (Ghada, Senem, Kate), and they are accessible and personable. They truly care for our children as we do, and they provide the structured, creative environment that Montessori is known for. Compared to other schools we have tried, IMS Paoli has huge open classrooms with lots of natural light, an expansive outdoor area with playgrounds, plenty of space to run, and they raise chickens and plant gardens. Excellent school and location at IMS Paoli!
My daughter has been going to the International Montessori School of Paoli for 3 years. She really enjoys going to school. It is wonderful as a parent to know your child is happy and truly learning. Here the children learn at their own pace with help from the teachers. It is not a competitive environment like many schools. Feeling successful while having fun is a gift for my daughter that I am happy to have found! I feel confident sending her to kindergarten next year.
My son Michael has been going to this school for 4 years and we love it. We are very please with the level of education he is getting and are confident that he will be prepared for kindergarten. The staff is professional and the school is clean. We recommend this school to everyone we know.
My son is in the toddler class and is loving every minute. They have wonderful, caring teachers who truly want to be a great influence on the lives of children. Its always a struggle to decide to put a child in daycare but once we settled in my whole family benefited! I know that he is in a safe, loving and fun environment and can go to work without worry. Also, you can call with any questions anytime and they don't mind. They have lots of fun activities spread throughout the months and keep the parents pretty informed. Overall a great place for children!
