MSSA: Education for a lifetime.

“Thanks to the Montessori philosophy, our daughter moves from concrete to abstract thought with quick agility and her ability to weave together ideas is both a surprise and delight to my husband and myself. The most frequent observation we hear from our friends and family is that our precocious four year old concentrates for extremely long stretches of time as she truly immerses herself in whatever project she is doing.”
