My son has attended Adobe West for two years. The 'Senior Class' 9-12 year olds is a transitional type of teaching. They use more of a traditional approach to the curriculum and still use Montessori philosophy. My son has had a very positive experience because of the positive learning environment and the respect the the teachers and fellow students show to each other. The owners of the school are available to express any concerns and have a genuine love for the children.
