Hear What Our Parents Are Saying

“Under the nurturing attention of her Montessori teacher, Ms. Bela, my daughter learned to focus on a task until it is complete and express herself clearly. Her Spanish Language teacher, Ms. Nubia, expanded her Spanish comprehension, and more importantly, with her guidance was able to develop more confidence in herself, speak up and get involved. Ms. Yolanda, the Montessori Assistant Teacher was a source of comfort for my daughter. She was able to see that she needed coaxing to fulfill her potential; ingeniously creating opportunities for her to lead activities and often providing that extra hug that was needed. I am very grateful that my daughter has been under their tutelage for 3 years, and to see her now assisting with the younger children, reading her first Bob Books on her own, correcting my Spanish pronunciation- it is reassurance we did the absolute best thing for her by finding this little known powerhouse of a school.” – Mrs. Bradford, 2011-2014

“Our son absolutely LOVES Spring and we couldn’t be more thrilled!!! We have seen a dramatic change in him especially in his mood compared to his previous school. We just wanted to thank you and the rest of the teachers and staff for making our son’s transition a smooth one. We couldn’t be happier with our choice and thank you for the opportunity to have our son at Spring!” – New Family, Summer 2014

“Ms. Bela has a keen ability to sense what each child in that classroom needs.  She very quickly came to understand the unique learning styles of our 3 children, each of them unique, teaching them in a manner to reach their core learning strengths.  She was integral in fostering intellectual curiosity in each of them. At 10 years old, we continue to see the spark in our girls’ eyes when learning something new.  I know, that had they not had a teacher like Ms. Bela, they may not have the work ethic and love for learning that she helped to instill in them each day.  My family is a family of educators,  generations in fact, that have chosen education as a career. All have commented on how wonderful the teacher must be, seeing the academic progress of our children during these critical years. You are so lucky to have the educator Ms. Bela in your midst.  I will say, I also feel the same about Ms. Margarita, Ms. Tutu and others who cared for my 3 children when they were at Spring. We knew that not only would they be in a caring environment, but that they would benefit from rich tutelage and instruction.” – Tyra & Kyle Cochran, 2007-2010 and 2012-2014

“Thanks for all you did to prepare (my son) for the world!” – Caroline Godwin, 2017

“Thank you so much for everything you and the SBMA community have done for my son and our family this summer. It has been truly heartwarming. Indeed, you were all a bright spot in what would have been an otherwise bleak summer. Unfortunately, my son’s medical team recommends that he be in a school setting with dedicated Occupational Therapists and a Registered Nurse. So, he won’t be able to return to SBMA for the school year. He needs a 504 Plan implemented for his needs and our local public school is equipped to provide for those. That said, please know that SBMA will always be HOME for my son and we’re so grateful for all of you!” – Maria Gonzalez Calvet, 2017

We plant seeds that SPRING to life!
