Our child loves her teacher and all of the staff. They care a lot about everyone and really go the extra mile. We had a great school year and watched our child develop in ways that we never knew she could at such a young age. We can't wait to see what comes next. I find all of the staff to be caring and very committed. I don't think Montessori is for everyone, but it works great for our family.

We agree with the pretentiousness! Not something we want our children growing up around. We decided not to put our kids into this school after our pre-experiences there.

Pretentious administration, if you want to be looked down upon and judged for seemingly no reason what-so-ever, then this school could be for you.

Haven Montessori has provided my children with the necessary framework, academically and socially, to be successful. The teachers and staff are kind, generous, excited to teach, and genuinely care about our family. My children are so excited to learn and come to school, and we could not be more pleased with the education that they are receiving. Not only are they learning academics well beyond what I imagined they could do at this age, but they are learning social lessons that will serve them well throughout their lives. Haven Montessori is the best in Flagstaff.

My children absolutely love this school, and I agree. It truly inspires learning, and I am amazed at how seemingly effortlessly they advance. The academics are superb and the teachers and administrative staff are kind and generous. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

We took our child out of this school, not for acedemic reasons, but for the lack of social guidance the children are given outside the classroom. Too many times we would walk down the school hallways and see kids literally beating each other up with aides/staff feet away. The play ground is not supervised well. We would see kids throwing rocks at each other and older kids picking on younger kids. After mentioning our concerns that our child was being picked on by an older child, nothing seemed to be done as our child kept reporting to us. It is a shame, because the actual program of learning is fabulous. The staff are ok, little too pretentious for us.

An absolutely amazing place! Just going to drop off and pick up my children makes me happy. Truly a safe, comfortable, inspiring, and confidence-building place for all children.

This is the paramount Montessori school in Flagstaff. Its also the only AMI Montessori. Their AMI training really makes a difference. My daughter has become so much more independent and confident there. The teachers are invested 100% in educating your child not only academicly, but as a whole person. The children come away motivated to learn and support one another in their learning. I can't think of a better school in town. I have plenty of experience working in the other schools with challenging students and know what else is out there.

Our daughter is thriving and blossoming in the elementary class at Haven. The Elementary Guide is inspired, encouraging, challenging (academically), caring and very consistent with the children. Our daughter is incredibly motivated to learn and loves school. We see more independence and responsiblity in her all the time. There is just the right balance of autonomy and independence and direction and guidance. I cannot commend or recommend this school strongly enough.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
