My son really seemed to enjoy this school and Miss Griffin was very invested in his education. She kept me up to date on his progress and really seemed to care about him. She even had the class make him a little book to say goodbye which was very sweet. Everyone communicates well, so if you have any issues at all I'm sure it would be easy just to let them know. We were sad to have to leave as my husband is in the air force and we are leaving NM.

I’ve known Ms. Griffin for almost 15 years. I attended University with Ms. Griffin and have followed her incredible career ever since. She is one of the smartest people I have ever met and I have always admired her desire and love for teaching children. She is extremely passionate about Montessori education and helping children find their own passion for learning. When she told me she was opening a school of her own, I knew I had to visit her and the school after it was up and running. I have visited her small but growing school and I was very impressed in what she has created. The classrooms were well stocked with learning tools and well organized. All the children were so happy and excited to learn. The staff was so kind, courteous, and soft spoken with the children. In fact never heard them raise their voices once with any of the children, like I have in other schools I have visited. Even when I saw a child misbehave, the staff never raised their voice. They were firm and strong with the child when it came to discipline but never harsh and definitely never over the top. After seeing this school in person I highly recommend LEAP Montessori School to any perspective parent wanting to send their child to an amazing school run by people who love teaching and helping children achieve all they can. I invite all perspective parents or anyone in the community who wishes to support the school in some way to go and visit LEAP Montessori in person and see first-hand what happens in the classrooms!

As the Toddler Guide in this school, I can honestly say that all the staff and owners are extremely proud of the work we do in school! We love each child for their strengths and can help with most challenges we face. We are proud to help our children to make the right choices and model how to treat others with respect and love. Our community is close knit and loving! I love our school and all the potential we have to grow and continue learning how to be the best we can be.
