When Paula Lillard greeted us at Forest Bluff years ago, it didn’t take long before her passion for her school and commitment to its success were revealed. We slowly walked from classroom to classroom, and she spoke of Montessori principles and explained what children were doing for close to two hours, much longer than we had expected.

I left that day impressed by her dedication but still unsure if it was the school for us. All it took was a visit to a different school – and the chaos apparent there – to persuade us that our kids would be in good hands at Forest Bluff School.
