Parent Academy







Why did we choose SNHMA for our daughter? Because she would be bored silly and cause trouble at any other type of school. At the age of six is she already doing second grade level work and has very advanced critical reasoning skills. At SNHMA, the Montessori classroom structure allows her to work at her own pace. This satisfies her desire for constant stimulation which can be translated into learning instead of troublemaking. She can choose new classwork that she finds interesting and challenging whenever she is finished with her old work, or she can watch older kids do projects to stimulate her interest in new areas, and make her want to be like a big kid in productive and meaningful ways. She is constantly asking us to make up challenges for her at home or she gets BORED and creates challenges for herself, which could be a problem in any other kind of classroom. We see her pride in her accomplishments, but we don’t ever hear about school being boring. As a parent, that makes me say, Woo-Hoo!
