We sincerely appreciate all of these kind words from our parents. We encourage you to read the parent reviews for Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy below. We are also happy to connect you with one of our current parents via e-mail or phone so you can get their feedback on what we believe is the top preschool around!

Words can’t even begin to describe how much I love this school! The teachers and staff are all so passionate about their work and dedicated in making sure the children are provided the best education and care. I am so grateful to have found this place!

Dear Ms. Noreen,

I know that it is usual to write letters of appreciation when families are leaving school.  However, I feel that I need to let you know how wonderful Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy is for my two daughters.

The oldest girl now is in second grade.  She began at the Grisby campus in the Toddler room and graduated from Kindergarten there.  She started the Elementary program in 1st grade last year and has already informed me she will be at Smaller Scholars until she finishes 6th grade.

The baby began at 15 months this past year at the Dairy Ashford Campus.  She is happy each morning when I drop her off and is now talking up a storm.  It is amazing to see her try to push our large chairs under the table at home like she has learned in school.  She already wants to do everything by herself.

Thank you for providing our children with a good education in a loving and caring atmosphere.

Dear Ms. Monica,

Just a little note to say how much we respect your love and compassion for the kids, and your (infinite) wisdom – you know just when to offer a hug or give a time out. Thank you so much for doing all you have for Ahmed – helping him to be a good person and rise to his true potential.  We feel extremely lucky that Ahmed landed in your classroom! (And we can’t wait till Sophia joins the club)  Please accept this gift certificate for some “me-time” as a token of our appreciation.

Ms. Noreen:

Again, I’d like to express my sincere appreciation for the wonderful learning experiences provided to my daughter Camille since January 2006. Her teacher, Ms. Joycelyn is a true gem and undoubtedly has a passion for what she does. Camille has settled into her new school, Rising Star Montessori in Fayetteville, Georgia. It is also AMS-certified, so her assimilation has been pretty smooth. She asks for her Smaller Scholars friends Lukas and Vivek quite often though.

The attached pictures pretty much some up the Smaller Scholars community – diversity in every sense. The children all share a sense of togetherness and genuinely care for each other and it is evident in the way they interact with each other.

Camille is walking away from this with memories that will last a lifetime. Feel free to share the photos on the website as well.  All the best!

All my best recommendations to this school.

It is very intimate and personal and you get to know all the teachers and students well. It feels safe and your child will get the best education. It also has a nice location and classrooms are big and clean.

The principal is very nice and will do whatever she can to make you feel all right with any situation.

This is a school on the upper level.

Our son has been in the Montessori system since he was 15 months old.  Keeping him in until Kindergarten was an easy decision because my wife and I were extremely impressed with his emotional and intellectual development.  Like many parents, however, we were not certain where to send him for elementary.   We investigated many schools, but ultimately decided to have him continue Montessori.  The most tangible development we have seen at this stage of his education is that he is empowered with the desire to learn.  He does not need to be forced to memorize facts and spend hours each evening on homework assignments.  He is learning to think for himself and is continually overcoming intellectual obstacles daily.  Our son’s education is an absolute priority, and we have not second guessed nor regretted our decision.

Our son has flourished in the Montessori environment.  He has surprised us multiple times by talking about something he has learned that his big brother just learned in an Honors class in High School!

Wow, there is so much to say about the wonderful education that my children are receiving from the Montessori way. Just recently I was at a birthday party with both the kids for one of Aakash’s friends. We were there at a large fun-plex for several hours, I was pleasantly surprised when a young lady in the fun-plex uniform approached me and said, “I just wanted to compliment you on how well behaved and courteous your daughter Meghna is, you’re doing a great job raising her”…………..I have to credit the Montessori way. The mixed aged classrooms are so dynamic for the young as well as the old, the young learn from the older kids and the older kids help teach the younger one while learning responsibility. An as they move through the system the roles of younger and older get reversed as they progress through the system.
