What Our Parents Say!
Our daughter is truly thriving at SIMS. Every day we watch as she enters the school with enthusiasm and leaves bursting with excitement. The teachers have encouraged her self confidence and independence, and nurtured a love of learning that will serve as a foundation for her educational experience throughout life. Their gentle trust in each child, coupled with a strong structure has provided a safe space for deep child-centered learning. We love that she is learning Spanish every day and that music and movement are integrated into the program in ways that allow our daughter to express her love of life in so many ways.
While we have loved SIMS since we started last year, after we returned this fall after the COVID shutdown in the spring and summer, we have an even deeper appreciation for the magic occuring in the classroom. Only a few days after returning, we could already see our daughter settling back into learning and growth in new ways and are so grateful she is able to spend every day in such a wonderful environment.
Have a great day!

“My daughter started SIMS in the fall of 2019 and returned the moment that it was safe to do so in the fall of 2020. I cannot speak highly enough about SIMS! My child is learning and growing in amazing ways! She is so clearly loved and cared for by the amazing teachers that I feel comfortable every day in sending her to school. Because of the wonderful work of the SIMS educators, we are privileged to see the benefits in her language, curiosity, independence, and capabilities! It is delightful to realize that my child is truly multilingual and self-directed in her learning!”

You know a school is succeeding when your child begs to stay to the very last possible minute in the after school program. This has been our experience with Spanish Immersion Montessori School. When we were interviewing potential schools for our daughter, we were very interested in enrolling our daughter into a program that offered language enrichment. We visited with 3 other traditional schools, one of which was Spanish immersion, but none was the right fit. When we visited SIMS, though, things changed. We loved the Spanish immersion combined with the Montessori method. The decision was easy after we brought our daughter to the classroom to see how she did. She took to it immediately, and we haven’t looked back.
We see the impacts of the practical life aspects of the curriculum when our daughter gets excited to get the dinner table at home. We love the art enrichment program in the after school program and hearing from our daughter about the artist of the month that’s being studied. We sing along to the songs our daughter brings home. We review world geography and it’s a joy that she can correctly identify continents. Our daughter has a very firm grasp of Spanish and defaults to counting in Spanish.
And while all of this is wonderful, we feel that best of all, our daughter loves going to school so much, she’s telling all that she wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
Thanks, SIMS, for starting our daughter’s formal education in such a special classroom with such incredibly dedicated and talented teachers!

We started at SIMS with our son almost three years ago, and we quickly realized how important their Spanish monastery program will be for our family. We enrolled our daughter in SIMS Nido as soon as she was old enough. SIMS has brought so much joy to my children during a time of chaos and uncertainty. SIMS provides structure while developing self-directed and independent children. The school has developed an online program that has really mastered the art of teaching and connecting with students online. Our 5 year old son is learning from home this year, and he has gotten so much out of this program already! He has fun playing and dancing during music lessons, enjoys learning about famous artists and recreating their work during art, and loves studying skeletons and learning about our bones during his lesson – all in Spanish! It’s really incredible. We were so worried this year wouldn’t be special for him missing school in person, but we’ve come to find this year at home is unique and special in its own way with help from his teachers.
Most importantly, with both of our kids enrolled at SIMS, we feel like the teachers and staff are our family; our kids revere them, and they know our children so well. They know how to teach them and how to reach them. It’s truly a special place.
