After trying another Montessori school that left us with a very uneasy feeling every day when we dropped our son off, we tried Quality Interactive and couldn't have been happier or more comfortable with entrusting them with our children! The owner runs a VERY professional, safe and educational program for the kids and the teachers are beyond wonderful and caring. I can't recommend this school enough. Our son and daughter both thrived there and attended until they went off to Kindergarten. Now they go back for the summer program which I have seen help them stay sharp during the summer months. It helps them return to school ready to learn, but my kids call the QIM summer program "Fun Learning" and they really enjoy it. Not once did this school every let us down or fail to meet our expectations for a caring and safe environment.
My son has attended QI Montessori for just over a year and half, he is currently in thier Kindergarten program. I have toured and my son has attended one other Montessori school, there is no comparison. QI has tought him more in the past 18 months than I could have ever imagined. All lead teachers posses a BA degree or higher, along with their Montesosri certification. Each child is taught at their own pace and lessons are given individually. The one on one attention is something that all children seem to want and need. The two teachers he has had have always been easy to talk to. The school is well run and our family loves it. We are even putting our infant daugther there in the fall. We will keep both our children at QI as long as we can. It truly is a great school, with exceptional teachers and wonderful director.
My children are now 10 and 12 and went to QI preK-K. I never write reviews because I'm a very busy person. I'm writing this review because I'm so impressed by this school. Not only did my children learn impeccable manners, how to organize and present their ideas, learn foreign languages, but they both also scored about 90% better that other children in the country in all subjects. We moved to UK where school is normally very challenging- they were at the top of their class there and recognized as role models for other children. I cannot say enough for the foundation they had at QI. It is a gem of a school and do have your child attend if the opportunity presents itself...I'm very fussy about schools and I would make no changes to this one. I would give 6 stars if I could! LGS
I am so happy that our son enjoyed his formative years at Quality Interactive Montessori. There he has learned the importance of respect and grace, experienced the freedom of exploration and discovery, and made great friends along the way. Quality Interactive Montessori is a place where the basics are learned as a direct result of a child's natural curiosity. I believe this unique experience will serve him well into the future of his education.
My son is a 2nd grader this year and has been at QI Montessori for 4 years. We absolutely love it! The teachers as incredibly caring and communication has always been easy between myself, the teachers, and the school director. QI has given him the opportunity to grow giving him guidance and love along the way. His social skills, academic capabilities and creativity have been nurtured under the Montessori principles. My son has enjoyed Spanish, Chinese, music and art in a positive and fun way that has encouraged the desire to LEARN MORE! His Iowa test scores, along with the majority of the kids in his class, were through the roof last year. We couldn t be happier with the exposure he is getting at such an impressionable age. You cannot go wrong with a school like QI, and we intend to stay as long as they will allow him to stay!
