What Parents Say

  • As a first time mom making the decision to put my little one in school was tough! IMA made it simple. The moment I toured the school, it was super clean, modern, spacious and resourceful. The best part was the staff! All the teachers are the sweetest and made my “cautious mamma’s boy” so comfortable from the very first day. I would highly recommend ❤️

  • Staff is super professional and the school is very well supplied. They have an excellent variety of Montessori lessons and a very good child to teacher ratio. They were able to show me their Montessori Certification, and comply with all regulations. Also, very clean and friendly. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

  • I absolutely 100% LOVE this school. I had my daughter in another school prior to her attending IMA. I had to break contract with that school because of how bad it was. Being a first time mom who was also scared to leave her baby with a new group of people after the terrible experience I had was so difficult for me. However, International Montessori Academy made this transition seamless. They take care of my child and my family as if we were family. They are in constant communication with the parents throughout the day which is something very important for me.
