Arborland Montessori Children's Academy held an Alumni Homecoming last Saturday, December 22, 2012, starting at 12 noon. The event was held at the Arborland Academy of the Arts.
Twenty five years' worth of alumni gathered together and reminisced about their formative and fun moments at Arborland. Dozens of former students came from all over the country to share their successes with their beloved childhood mentors.
These reunions are a joy not only to the students and their parents, but also the teachers. "It is reaffirming as a teacher to see your former students grow into accomplished adults," said Kandy Weidman, Arborland dance teacher for almost two decades. "It feels good," added Weidman, "to think, 'I may have had a hand in their success'!"
The afternoon was filled with nostalgia and pride, as teachers and students walk down memory lane hand-in-hand.
Arborland Montessori was first established in 1988, with the campus on Valencia Drive. From the humble beginnings of one classroom and seven children, Arborland flourished into two Montessori campuses, and the Academy of the Arts.
The Arborland alumni network has grown steadily for twenty five years. Arborland graduates eventually go on to attend outstanding high schools and universities, like Harvard, Yale, and Stanford. Their successes have been constantly attributed to Arborland's well-rounded curriculum, small class sizes, and high regard for a personalized educational plan.
