"I was the first student to start from Beginnings class and go all the way up to 9th grade at the junior high. Whenever I think of the word, "Montessori," family always comes to mind--because at Mountain Laurel, everyone's involved. If there was something I could say to students at Mountain Laurel now, it would be to take everything your teacher says to heart. They know what they're doing, and I learned that once I graduated and went to public school. I would definitely send my child there. Mountain Laurel doesn't just teach you how to do math and other works like that. It also teaches you how to be mature and make good choices."
