I have two daughters who attended The Marpole Bilingual Montessori. The school is academically very strong, which prepared my daughters very well for their future education. This played a large part in their acceptances into our school of choice. My daughters also learned to love school and develop a positive attitude towards education and learning. The school organized extra curricular activities such as donating items to Christmas hampers for underprivileged families and taking part in a walkathon to raise money for charity. This helped my daughters learn about the importance of contributing to the community, and they continue to volunteer their time in their current school. I also liked the idea of wearing uniform, which creates unity and equality amongst the students. The teachers created a very loving environment that encouraged every child to be their own person. This helped my daughters develop self-confidence and the ability to excel in their current school. Mariam was especially dedicated to the school and I appreciated how she communicated well with the parents on a consistent basis. Marpole Bilingual Montessori School really prepares students well for their future endeavours and more importantly, help them become good little citizens of the world. I still keep in touch with Mariam and many of the teachers, and love keeping up to date about their progress.
