Milton Montessori School (originally Red Apple Montessori School) is a special place. I can’t imagine a better place for my daughter. I was impressed by the reviews I had read online before I enrolled my daughter but once I tried it, I fell in love with the place. The staff and teachers are exemplary. They are very friendly and made my daughter feel right at home. My daughter’s teacher and the entire staff is highly trained and certified in the Montessori curriculum. With such a low ratio, I felt that they got to know my child intimately – Ms. Anu, who is her main teacher knows her strengths and weaknesses very well. I have often seen her sitting with the students on the floor engaging with them at their eye level which is very special. The most important thing is that my daughter wakes up every morning and gets excited about going to school. In a nutshell, it is a place where my daughters curiosity is encouraged, her voice is heard, her little personality is respected, and her teachers are passionate about teaching. I could not have asked for a better place for my child to be.

I wanted to enroll my son to a Montessori program and tried one-two of the other schools in the area and finally came to Red apple Montessori. In my personal experience this is the best Montessori school nearby, none other can be compared to this. Arav recently joined this school and I could see a lot of improvements in him, he is becoming more and more independent and confident. Ms. Anu is the best teacher he could ever get and the assistant teachers have been very caring too. Whenever I see something new that my son has mastered upon, I ask him who taught you and he replies “Miss Anu taught me”! So glad to hear that.

My daughter loves it here!! She only started in October and I can see a world of difference in her. The teachers are amazing and they do an amazing job teaching and getting her excited to learn. Everyday she is excited to go to “teacher Anu house” as she refers to school.

I don’t usually write reviews for products or restaurants, etc online but we have had such a wonderful experience with Red Apple that I wanted to share in hopes of helping other parents who are interviewing and researching schools for their children. It was the best decision we ever made to send my son when he was 2.5 years old. He is now on his 3rd and final year at the school before transitioning to Kindergarten and my youngest child will be starting there next year. The teachers (both in the Toddler class and the Primary classes) are so bright and nurturing. The main teacher in the Toddler classroom was exactly the person we needed as I was adjusting to sending my child to school for the first time and he was adjusting as well. She was so warm and caring and made it such a positive experience. She really took the time to get to know his personality and was able to teach him so much. The director is fantastic and we are lucky she happens to be my son’s teacher as well for the past two years. Her kindness and patience shines through in her lessons and my son tells me his favorite thing to do is read out loud to her while she helps him. I love the small environment of the school and the open door policy. We can chat with the teachers any time and can even come help out in the classroom for special occasions. We truly value and appreciate how they challenge the children to reach their fullest potential while allowing them to be exactly who they are and achieving their goals at their own pace. My child has truly thrived in this environment and enjoys going to school everyday. Additionally, the school is always well maintained and has lots of creative materials for the children to use. We have been very pleased and feel Red Apple Montessori is an outstanding preschool for our children.

So, I guess the old saying is true… Great things come in small packages! We just started our 2 1/2 year old son at Red Apple, and I must say it is a very legitimate Montessori School! AMAZING FROM DAY ONE!!!!!!!!! The director is not only professional and knowledgeable but the teachers are awesome and even on the tour, they made my son feel so welcome, he didn’t even want to leave! You can tell they love their job and the children. The classrooms are neat and clean and fully equipped. Also a bonus, they actually had my son fully potty trained in a week and a half!!! They are truly a blessing and we are so happy we found this school and gave it a try! Keep up the good work!!!!!

I am originally from Maryland and moved into the Atlanta area about 2 years ago. Having a big family and support system back home, one of my biggest concerns with work relocation was to find a good preschool to take care of my two children (ages 2 & 4). Milton Montessori was recommended by a colleague who had sent his child to this school some years earlier. He specifically mentioned about Ms. Anu and her amazing ability to bond with children. I did not spend much time touring other schools and enrolled both my kids at this school. The older one was with Ms. Nisha (primary) and younger one was with Ms. Anu (toddler).
The biggest strength of this school is the genuine care and close knit culture shared between teachers, children and parents. Montessori has a unique approach which I was not completely sold into initially but am now observing the creativity and independent thinking it fosters especially with my older child. The staff has been responsive to concerns or special requests I have had periodically. Ms. Anu was an outstanding teacher to my younger child and was instrumental in her development.
I would recommend this school to anyone looking to provide a strong foundation and ability to grasp concepts in math, science and learning in general.

I was among the original batch of preschoolers when Milton Montessori (back then it was called Red Apple Montessori) started during 2009-2010. I am in Elkins Pointe middle school now and we got a call from the school last week inviting us for their 10 year anniversary celebration on Jan 12th. I was too young to remember much details of the school but I enjoyed going there every morning. Ms. Leigh was my teacher and she was very kind. I cannot wait to go back in Jan to meet my old friends and teachers.

This school is amazing!! The teachers are qualified, many have master degrees in education. My son loves it and I can tell how much he is learning. Also, I transitioned my son from Kids R Kids, so I was able to tell the difference in a matter of two months or so. So glad I found it!!
