Congratulations on QRIS ratings!

OMA would like to congratulate Meadowlark Montessori in Prineville on their 5-star QRIS rating, as well as offering congratulations to Foundations Montessori Preschool in Eugene on their 4-star rating.  It takes a lot of work on the school’s part to receive those ratings, so join me in congratulating these schools for achieving those excellent ratings!
