School Reviews

5   7/11/2022
Nokomis Montessori South is a lovely small school. The students are peaceful, inquisitive, and kind. The staff is hardworking, creative, and caring. The principal is outstanding. She listens well and stays actively involved in the building. You can find her talking with kids in the cafeteria, assisting in classrooms, and leading parent sessions. The Montessori methods used in the building make hands-on learning a priority. Kids use manipulatives to learn math. Special classes include music, science, and physical education. Nokomis Montessori South is a great place to be. I recommend it highly!
