We salute Ms. Laxmi for creating such an enriched environment for the children to foster educational and overall growth, we would come here again for our newly born. June 03, 2013 Shabana F This is a Good School, and we feel we made the right choice of enrolling our kid in this school,he first attended summer camp where they taught him to read on our request within 6 weeks our son learned two letter words and three letter words it shows all of their hard work and commitment,especially miss lakshmi she is great teacher she has wonderful teachers who equally work hard on kids December 21, 2011 ★★★★★ A GREAT SCHOOL Chandana S. This is the second year of my daughter's schooling at DMS. My daughter moved from one class to another because she wanted to be with her best friend. So I know all the teachers in both the classrooms and all of them are great. Ms.Laxmi is remarkable, I've never seen her raise voice or show irritation with kids. Parents can learn from her about how to talk to kids. They care about all aspects of a child's development, not just academic. I'd definitely send her for kindergarten too. February 18, 2011 ★★★★★ Great School Evie Z. I think really highly of DMS and Ms Laxmi. She is an amazing educator. She monitors very closely at the students and teaches them when they are ready. Both of my kids learned to read chapter book and do multiplication/division just in two years. The staff are also very nice. Even though the school is small, but it is kept spotless. I would highly recommend DMS to any parents. I don't quite understand the negative comments. I guess it's extremely hard to keep everybody happy. Even for a great school like this, there are still people who were upset. And usually upset people want to get their voice heard and happy people won't bother to comment. I just feel it's very unfair for DMS. That' why I wrote all this. September 30, 2010 ★★★★★ Great School Vikram S. The thing about Dulles Montessori School is that differentiated learning is basically their entire philosophy. they put a ton of energy into closely observing and working with your child, and then meeting the child at their level. Finding the window when they are ready to read, for example, recognizing that, and then jumping in at the right time. There are two teachers in each class, and while one is teaching, the other is often observing and taking notes. I am pleasantly surprised by what they know about my child (3 days last week he was interested in working with such and such math project). We have been at DMS for a few years now. I am constantly struck by the variety of children and learning styles/abilities that the school caters to. The caregivers are cheerful, loving, and respectful of the children in their care. The children in this school are well-mannered and articulate. They have the freedom to move from one activity to another so they are stimulated to learn and play. I highly recommend it!

June 03, 2009 ★★★★ Excellent Teaching Staff - Highly Recommended Victor S. My daughter went to this school for 2 years. Boy, do I miss it! She learned a lot there and was far ahead of the kids in the 1st grade when she went to public school. I wish this school went all the way to High School! You will be happy your child attended this school. May 06, 2009 ★★★★☆ Great learning for kids Marnie S. My child has gone to school here since the owner, Laxmi Chauhaun, opened 2 years ago and we are SO impressed with her as a teacher and the school in general. It exceeds our expectations in everyway. Our son absolutely loves going to school and has learned to read at age 4. Our daughter was also taught by Laxmi so we have known her for 5 years now. Every parent and child that attends Dulles Montessori School is happy with the school and the education they are receiving. ★★★★★ Amazing School View More ....
