What Parents Have to Say

Our kids have been attending HDMS’s primary program for 2 years and we absolutely love it! The teachers have been amazing, and wonderful Montessori learning is taking place. My son has fallen in love with math and because of the philosophy about independence and learning at your own pace he has been able to go so far and has really started gaining a love for learning.

It's a great school for families looking for a more comprehensive approach to education than what can be offered in the traditional public school system. I like the sense of community within the school and also the amazing teachers who are incredible leaders in their classrooms and always looking out for what's best for each student.

Thank you High Desert for challenging my children academically and teaching them social responsibility. Both my oldest and youngest son are able to work at a level that challenges them academically in every core academic class and then some. The ability of my sons to thrive and grow is only possible because of a highly-skilled, caring group of teachers, parents, and students.

Our kids have been attending HDMS’s primary program for 2 years and we absolutely love it! The teachers have been amazing, and wonderful Montessori learning is taking place. My son has fallen in love with math and because of the philosophy about independence and learning at your own pace he has been able to go so far (compared to what is typically taught in kindergarten) and has really started gaining a love for learning. My kids have also learned more kindness, patience, and peaceful Interactions from this school. Plus, it’s a charter school so we are extremely thankful to have free, quality Montessori education through middle school!

This school as given my son the best opportunities to be a gracious, caring, empathetic, and curious human. We have loved every second of his 7 years at this school and the lifelong memories he has made.

We feel so thankful that we found this Montessori school when we moved here. Our son is in kindergarten and started in the primary program when he was 3. Mrs Chrissy is amazing with the children and is always responsive and available to meet or discuss anything. Our son has thrived in this school environment and we are excited that our daughter will also have the opportunity to go there in the fall. We live in the NW and feel the 20 min drive is well worth it for our son to get such a great education.

I drive about 20 minutes just to take my child to this school. I really appreciate the teaching methods, love the teachers and staff, and the parents and the children too. The parents that bring their kids here CHOSE to put them in this school. They seem hands-on and involved in their children’s lives. Overall I’d give the school a 10 for all the things that I’m looking to get from a school: a safe positive place for my child to learn and grow in the way that works best for him.
