Private Schools in Palmetto Bay & Pinecrest

There are lots of choices when it comes to early childhood and primary education in South Florida. I would like to talk about a school that is very near and dear to my heart Alexander Montessori.  With their 4 campuses, students as young as 18 months and up to Fifth Grade can experience the best Montessori in all of South Florida.  Families actually come in from as far as Key Biscayne, Miami Beach, Homestead, and Miramar to attend this incredible school.  The McGhee Family runs this exceptional school, and has been doing so for over 50+ years, AMSall originating out of their campus at 6050 SW 57th Avenue.  With the best teachers and facilities around, students grow to become thinking machines and creativity is instilled in them from Day 1.  You will see immediately!!  As a parent of a recent graduate and a current Alexander student, the projects, performances, classwork, and exercises; all contribute to rounding out the children as “top recruits” for the top middle schools such as Palmer Trinity, Ransom, Gulliver Prep, including Southwood and Palmetto Middle.  My two children both attended Alexander since they were 2 (now 13 and 10), have both experienced great moments at Alexander.  From expanding their minds in art, music appreciation, dance, creative writing, to math and science, the whole education is thought provoking and encompassing.   The transition to Middle School at Palmer Trinity for my oldest was like clockwork.  That is because at Alexander in 4th and 5th grades, students change classes 5-7 times with an emphasis on Middle School Prep.  You will not find a school with more accolades, more enthusiasm, more qualified teachers and more loving staff than Alexander Montessori.  Come see for yourself.  Contact Dr. Joyce McGhee at for further information.
