Our Take: Pine Lake Montessori School
Families turn to Montessori for a range of reasons, and Pine Lake is a strong example of a majority of them. The teaching is strong, with instructors well-versed in the core methods, as demonstrated through CCMA accreditation. That said, families are also drawn by the close-knit community, the creative, hands-on programming, and the crisp, well-appointed learning spaces. Academics are important, though set and setting are important, too, something which provided the impetus for Sue Eirdmousa to found Pine Lake in 2012. The program continues to grow, as with the fairly recent addition of the lower elementary grades. That likely will continue as the student population ages and current families are understandably reluctant to move on to other schools, this given the success that the program to date. Indeed, it was due to pressure from the parent community that the program was extended, something which is as good an indicator of the health of a school that you could ever hope to find.
