"Both of my children attended SAMS and had an amazing experience. The teachers are incredibly talented and dedicated to instilling a love of learning in the students. The school offers a wide range of learning opportunities, including field trips, creative projects, and educational guests. You could not ask for a better learning environment."- Harry Hunt
"SAMS offers children a wonderful balance of Montessori principles and playful learning. Warm, nurturing teachers oversee thoughtfully prepared classrooms. Multiple periods outdoors give students time for free play and opportunities to develop physical and social skills. Students help care for an outdoor garden, which has its own light-filled and airy classroom. The school also offers a Kindergarten year for its oldest students. This is a one-of-a-kind school and community worth getting to know."- K M
