Parent's Impressions

My son constantly recalls the years he spent at Castle Island because he realizes how much he learned there. The foundation he received at Castle Island is priceless: the creative and supportive atmosphere that he was immersed in is hard to find at regular/traditional schools. I would highly recommend Castle Island to those families that really care about their child's future as an enthusiastic learner!"

We chose Castle Island because we were looking for an environment where our child could learn at her own pace, that was safe, and could flourish. Since we had only limited knowledge about the Montessori philosophy of learning, and our child thrived beyond our expectations.


The bilingual component offered by Castle Island was an added benefit that we thought would enhance her educational foundation. The mixed age group learning model is great!


At the end of the day, the Castle Island family has helped shaped our child into a curious, energetic, well-spoken, well-mannered, self-sufficient kindergartener who gets along well with her peers, and folks of any age. She has a passion for art and loves to travel. We think Castle Island has played an integral part in her intellectual and emotional growth over the past two years."

We knew that Ze would benefit more from a Montessori-style education than from daycare, but during Ze's first week at Castle Island (as a three-year-old), the change in his excitement to go to school and his level of interest was remarkable. I'm not exaggerating when I say that every day during that week he would ask me, 'Papa, can we go to the Montessori school?' Part of it is that the independent style of learning suits his personality very well, but I also think that he was craving the challenge that Castle Island provides."
