We have two children who attend Greenway Crossing and we love it and love Mrs. Cynthia and her staff. The children really blossom with Montessori education because they are allowed to explore new things and dive into whatever they are passionate about. Our Kindergartner reads at a 2nd or 3rd grade level and her little brother has shown a real knack for art and spanish. Everyday he takes us to his work station and shows off what he did for the day. The children have made many friends and the staff is competent and compassionate. I have substitute taught for a couple local public school systems and in my experience the montessori environment is superior to what they offer (teaching to the L.C.D.). We have met and befriended some great families during this time. Totally worth checking into. Their location (central Madison just south of the "Beltline") is also convenient. They have been a blessing to our kids and family. : ) Sincerely, Madison Dad of 6 & 4 yr. olds!

Our son started at Walbridge in the 3rd grade, 2 grade levels behind in all subjects, severely lacking in self confidence. Within the first semester we saw him realize that he CAN learn. Homework went from a "drag him kicking and screaming" affair to him self-starting assignments on a regular basis. We are extremely grateful to the school and its dedicated teaching staff for changing our family dynamic in a positive way! The school works for a variety of reasons: small class sizes means more individual attention; multiple teaching methods are employed to help reach the children in the way that THEY learn; study skills are taught so that when the students move on they have the tools to continue their education successfully by showing them their learning style so they can be their own self-advocate. An excellent school!
