My children both attended Crossway Montessori.
I would like to highlight the standard of education Crossway Montessori provides for all children enrolled in the school regarding of their socio-economic background.
The Students in the Family Leadership School are working on achieving success for themselves and their children. Over the past 6 years I have witnessed wonderful changes in the life of those families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

educating children with the highest standards.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be able to serve more families.

Our son has been attending Crossway Montessori School for 3 years now and we would highly recommend it to any family looking for a great education and exposure to many different cultures and languages. Our son loves spending time outside working in the garden and learning about nature. He is learning so many skills that we know will help him become a strong, responsible, independent young man. As parents, we also enjoy being able to get involved in an organization with such a great cause!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing a big positive change in my son's behavior and knowledge.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them get more funds to be able to reach out to more people in need
