We are beyond thrilled with the school and the staff members — accommodating and friendly. My daughter absolutely adores her teachers. Being a teacher myself, I know the importance of an effective educator and positive learning environment and how it impacts an individual child’s overall development and ability to thrive.  I am so pleased and impressed with Sunrise Montessori School. This is a wonderful school and highly recommend it to all parents for their children. Thank you, Sunrise!

Sunrise has a special place in my heart for many reasons. My 5.5 year old started in the toddler program and moved up to the French Immersion program. She loved all her teachers and enjoyed the enriched learning environment. . . A lot of my gratitude and respect are for the teachers, assistants, and all staff at Sunrise. Thank you for all your hard work each day. I know that my second daughter is in good hands. She also loves you all and enjoys her experience each day. I think that you are all wonderful!

Parent & Teacher

I am really happy with the quality of teaching at Sunrise. My kids have attended the school for infant, toddler, casa and elementary programs. The teachers are caring and patient, and passionate about helping the kids to learn and grow. They have helped my kids develop a love for reading and curiosity for learning. I have been very pleased with their academic progress, and love to see how excited and proud my kids are of their school work and learning how to do more things independently. I highly recommend Sunrise Montessori.
