My boys love this school, their teachers and the learning activities.
I'm thankful that this Montessori school is only about 3 minutes from my residence.
This location is inside of a church, but there's nothing wrong with that, I don't personally go to this church and I am still happy to send my boys to this school.
This north campus goes up to 6th grade. My boys are going to be in the preschool/kindergarten class together this year. I may or may not add my youngest to the toddler class this year. I'm still deciding on that. But I know the sooner the better for them. :)
My two boys went last year and it was their first year. It was great to see my now 4 year old mature more throughout the year, it's been great to watch. He loves his teachers and they are extremely patient. My boys are very busy busy boys and can know how to push patience, so I thank the teachers for really getting down to their level and helping them flourish.
I'm excited to see how this year will be for both of them. I highly recommend this school.

"Thank you for the way you loved on my family this past summer. We will never forget it." ~ Kristi V.
My son has been at Sunrise since kindergarten and, as he enters 4th grade, we couldn't be happier with the education he's received and personal growth he's made in the Montessori environment. The staff facilitates a student-driven environment and cultivates a passion for learning. The kids are empowered and supportive of one another, bullying is non-existent, and consideration for individual differences is modeled for students in every aspect of their learning. The families at Sunrise have become an extension of our own family. I highly recommend Sunrise and wish there was a equivalent 7-12 grade option nearby! ~ Staci M.
"Love, love, love Sunrise Montessori. They teach, inspire, challenge, and love every child. The work and time that they have put into my son is amazing. It gives me goosebumps and brings me to tears when I look at my sons journey! The staff, the school families, the relationships that the children develop is indescribable. What the world needs now is more Sunrise Montessori." ~ La Shawn H.
"Love both of the Sunrise Montessori schools. They have the north campus which shares space with a church (no biggie, not religious based education), and a south campus which only does pre-K through K. My kids have been in both. Mary Ellen (owner) and all of her staff do a great job of running both locations smoothly. The education that my two kids have received there has progressed them well beyond my expectations. If you read through the Montessori brochures, it might give you the impression that the school will be run very loose. Reality is far from that. They teach traditional curriculum in a way that makes sense for a lot of kids that may not do well in mainstream schools, and the kids there thrive on it. Each child gets an individual education, given the chance to sprint ahead where they do well, and get the individual attention they need on subjects that they may struggle with. My first born completed 1st grade there last year. By the end of the year, he'd progressed from simple childrens' books, to reading way more complex chapter books. He's also able to do 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication. Read that again. My 1st grader is doing multiplication! Not 1x2 kind of stuff. 48x62 kind of stuff. My daughter is still pre-K, but at 2.5yrs old....her vocabulary, proper use of sentence structure, ability to count, and behavior have all progressed well past where I thought possible at her age. Best part....both of them LOVE going to school.
I use to think I got a good education when I was in primary school....now I see what I was missing." ~ Jeff M.
