Apple Families and Alumni

    • As we get closer to Owen having a baby brother (due in March), the entire Apple staff has been wonderful with getting Owen comfortable with the change. His teachers have shown him the classroom his brother will be in, helped him pick out names, and taught him what responsibilities he’ll have to have as a big bro (patience, being gentle, quiet, carefulness, etc.). Feeling pretty lucky to be part of the Apple family right about now 🙂

    • My son, Derek, graduated from the Kindergarten program at apple two years ago. The Kindergarten program has set such a strong foundation and we are so happy we made the decision to enroll him at Apple when we did. Since the beginning of the school year he has scored 106/100 on his weekly spelling tests. He actually enjoys reading and we regularly go to our local library to check our dozens of books. Most importantly, he is sharing his knowledge and love of learning and reading with my Maggie (age 5). Derek sets a great example by reading and Maggie wants to be just like her big brother. Thank you Apple!

    • Going into our second year with Apple has been extra special, because we’re watching my younger child’s interest and excitement for school grow each time we drop off my older child. Everything from the warmth and engagement from every staff member at Apple, to the homework and projects brought home, is making it easy to introduce school and learning to a younger sibling.

    • Our daughter started at Apple Montessori when she was 2.5 years old in Metuchen. She could barely talk or make sentences. The teachers were very nice and work on her needs. She was one of the youngest pre-K in her class. She was behind in her learning. Her teacher went above and beyond and spend extra time in teaching the materials. She was able to read books and spell words at age of 4 yr.

    • My daughter is in her third year at Apple and this week I joined her class for the art festival. What a joy! She used oil pastels for a self-portrait that was wonderfully kooky but I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her depiction of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers; her painting has come along in leaps and bounds, and she is able to represent what sees now. What a milestone; it feels like the world is opening up to her. I sense I am going to particularly enjoy seeing how she uses this medium to express herself in the coming years!

  • Ms Barias is a major reason I haven’t found a house as yet! Simple reason- I can’t take the chance of letting my son not be able to grow and become the amazing intelligent child he has become since he joined AMS…He is always excited to be at school and most importantly tell me “I am smart and precious”- something that his teacher said to him and he is proud about.

  • Kellie attended Apple through kindergarten and summer camp through age 12, where she later worked as a lifeguard. Kellie’s mom, who has worked at Apple for almost two decades, said, “I knew she was being taken care of like she was one of their own children and I never had to worry.” View blog.
