“My son had the privilege of studying in AppleTree for more than 2 years. He has been in another school for another academic year which is rated very high in the community which gives me good pointers to compare.”
“Besides following the Montessori curriculum which has its own advantages, Apple tree is exceptional in terms of academic curriculum. My son cleared all the evaluations and was ahead of his grade level due to the focus provided at Appletree. But academic readiness and focus is only part of the story. The best thing that I like about this place is the attention given to the emotional aspect and development of each child. I was surprised and amazed at the social and emotional feedback that was given, the teacher understood each one of them emotionally and made some invaluable observations. We heard similar stories from other parents. We are still working on that feedback :).”
“The connection that we felt in the school has been unparalleled .It always felt like home each time we dropped our child to school. Celebrations were always about connecting to the bigger family be it Mothers, fathers or Graduation Day. Ms Renu has done a tremendous job in getting the school to this level and his teachers Ms Renu and Ms Vinitha in the two rooms have been exceptional”.
“We have been recommending the school for all of our friends’ kids as it has been a very enriching experience all along”.

“Excellent school! When my daughter joined in this school, she didn’t know numbers, alphabets, phonics… After two years in this school, even though she is 5 yrs old now, she has the knowledge of a first grader. She picked up lot of vocabulary from teacher even my 9 year old doesn’t know those words (he checks in the dictionary when she uses those words). Teachers and Director always work closely with kids and parents for constant improvements. Teachers give personal attention to each kid and helps them to learn new things. Every day I will be waiting to pick up my daughter to hear from her what new things she learned in school. With the Common Core, I was worried how to teach her as Montessori has their own curriculum. But one day, I was surprised seeing the worksheets that my daughter brought home on Friday. Without asking, teachers started working on Critical Thinking which is the key for Common Core. Teachers are always up to date along with the district’s curriculum. I highly recommend this school who are passionate to learn new things every day and every minute”.

“Atharv joined AppleTree when he was 2.5 years. We have seen him grow into a fine young boy of 5 now and credit AppleTree for contributing enormously in grooming him. We appreciate AppleTree in not only building his educational skills but also focus on his behavioral traits. We can’t thank enough the wonderful teachers who have made so many beautiful memories for us. What more can I say other than that both me and my kid are happy when I leave him at AppleTree !!”
“Appletree Montessori is a very special school. The teachers are phenomenal and among the best that I have known. They guide the students to work at their own level and encourage each child to do his or her personal best. They set firm boundaries with warmth and respect. The staff has created a balanced curriculum plan that integrates academic, practical, and social goals. The children have outside play time daily and participate in music and singing activities regularly. I have seen my child thrive and gain confidence in all areas of development because of the nurturing environment at Appletree.”
We are as much new to this country as much to Appletree Montessori, when we moved to the Bay Area from London, a sudden apprehensiveness caught my attention, finding a preschool that was the best in my opinion becomes the key motive of my life. Appletree was the first school we visited and also the last one. The minute we stepped in we realized this is exactly what we were looking for. When I use the term “The Best” for me it means, warm, cozy, friendly and a structured environment. The Teacher Parent Team work builds a solid trustworthy foundation in a child’s mind.
Our son is nurtured academically as well as emotionally in this very loving. Environment. I have also had a chance to attain the graduation ceremony of the kindergartners and when I saw the refinement in them it was amazing little children we seen reciting an acrostic poetry in front of a large audience which is highly commendable for that age group. We were extremely satisfied ,happy and contended when our son comes home happily and would show willingness to go to school everyday!! Kudos to the whole staff of Appletree! Then I got a job in a very well know but highly commercial school, that’s when we decided to shift our son to the same school as mine, something was just not feeling right in my heart, 3rd day and my son was shifted back to Appletree after a very regretful thinking. The welcome that we received from Ms.Renu is very much appreciable!
Appletree Montessori had carved a niche in our Heart!!! Once more kudos to the whole team of Appletree, you truly follow the philosophy of Montessori.
