Covenant Classical Schools & Daycare of Research Park

7010 Governor’s West NW Unit 2
Huntsville, AL

I must start out by saying that I am a mama who is VERY hands-on with my daughter. I own my own business, Valley Birkenstock, and my husband is an engineer so we work very hard to balance work and family life. I knew it was going to be a challenge to find somewhere that I felt like was taking the care that I demanded for my daughter and I found it. I am such a big fan of CCS. We toured several daycares/schools to try to find a good fit for our family and I was so impressed with CCS. They have wonderful teachers and staff that truly love on the kids. My daughter has excelled there in every way. When I say “Are you ready to go to school?” she runs for the door. She absolutely loves it there and it makes me feel so good to leave her somewhere knowing that she is safe and happy. They have cameras in every classroom for accountability and you have to have a code to enter. You can bring your own lunch and we believe in a low sugar diet which they happily follow. They do a different color, shape, bible verse, and character value each week. It AMAZES me when I go in to pick up my daughter and all of the 1 year olds are sitting in chairs doing lessons. I’ve walked in on many an occasion to the teachers singing songs to them and even doing lyrical dancing for them one time. I can not say enough good things about this school and recommend it to anyone and everyone that asks! – Julie P.

My little one is in Kindergarten now, but she started the preschool when she was 3months old. We have loved it. Great academics and kinetic learning in a clean Christian atmosphere. – Cheryl B.

We have been sending our child to Covenant Classical since Early 2011. She absolutely loves it and has learned so much. I love not having to worry about my child while I am at work because I know she is being well taken care of. I also love that they are backing up the same Christian values we are instilling at home. – Christina H.

 My son has always struggled with math, often to the point of tears.  When he began to go to Mathnasium, he’d walk in with his head down, his shoulders hunched, and he was afraid to ask questions.  He has gained so much confidence this school year that his head is held high, he laughs and talks to people at Mathnasium, he readily asks questions and receives the attention he deserves, and he now has a solid B in math, up from consistent D’s.  He’s free to ask the questions he needs to, as many times as he needs to.  There is no ridicule, no frustration from the tutors, just help and support.  We wouldn’t go anywhere else! – Crystal H. 


Montessori School of Huntsville

15975 Chaney Thompson Rd SE
Huntsville, AL 35803

We started at MSH two years ago and are well into our third school year. Every year, my son has grown by leaps and bounds. Due to the three year cycle espoused by Montessori, he had the same teachers his first two years and has moved into a new class this year with a range of ages. The transition went beautifully and he loves his new teachers and friends. He likes how the big boys and girls help him complete tasks and learning to do things on his own! The administration and staff of the school love and respect the children and it shows in the quality of the education. As parents, we have found a home here as well with the tight-knit community and they myriad of opportunities available to all family members to get involved and help out at the school. We love Montessori School of Huntsville! – Ashley D.

I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for day care or pre-school for your toddler. When I found MSH I was not thinking about school yet, but since my first visit I never had a second thought that this was where I wanted my son. I hope that he will stay through 6th grade in this amazing school. Every child at this school is amazing, a true testament to how this method of teaching can build intelligent, independent leaders for the next generations. – Amber

My son has been going to Montesssori School of Huntsville for 4 years now. I have been amazed at his progress and education. I am a firm supporter of the Montessori Method and have implemented many of the ideas and tools at home. I plan to keep my son in MSH for as long as we can. Molly R.

Our son has been attending Montessori School of Huntsville for over a year, and we couldn’t be happier. There is such a huge benefit to starting your child off with a montessori education. When we first went to the school to learn about the methods of montessori we were taken aback by the calm atmosphere and the independence of the children. We were amazed! We met our son’s teachers and spoke with them before we chose to send him there. I cannot say enough about the wonderful teachers and staff at the school. They are there to help your child grow individually, and they put their hearts into it. My son is 3 1/2 and he loves school and loves to learn. I credit that in large part to Montessori School of Huntsville. If you are considering Montessori school I suggest you check it out like we did – take a tour and learn about the method…you won’t be disappointed! – Ava

My daughter has been attending Primrose School of Madison since she was six months old. I truly feel that each of the teachers my daughter has had genuinely cares about her well-being. She has excelled far beyond her peer group, which I credit to Primrose. It’s a great feeling when you drop your child off in the morning and she runs to her teacher full of giggles and hugs. I am confident that Primrose will continue to provide a positive environment for my child to learn and grow in. – Jennifer G.

Both of my young boys go to this school and I love it! My youngest, 1 year old, is already signing things. My oldest is autistic and they let his therapists come to school and accommodate all of his needs. They are totally parent-friendly too. I can stop by anytime and visit, and they love to have parents attend parties or even just stop by to read a book. My favorite thing about the school is the curriculum. It allows my children to be themselves while learning at the same time. There is always something fun going on there. We are a Primrose family for life! – Rebecca J.
