This is a wonderful school! Suder's atmosphere is serene, organized and follows the Montessori teaching model down to every detail. Suder's teachers are amazing teachers, well educated, serious and focused on the job of educating their young charges. (The art teacher has a Ph.D.). The student body is ethnically and culturally diverse. Students are ready to work and love their school. I would work at this school in a New York minute as teacher. If I were a parent, I would be thrilled to send my children here.
