My children have been at Montessori academy for the past two years. I can't tell you how pleased I have been with my children's appreciation for education since they began. The teachers are interested in my children. They are interested in how I feel when it comes to my childrens education. I rate it top notch and the test scores prove it. Send your kids here. You won't go wrong.
I believe this school could be great, if they had stronger leadership. The technology in the school is not up-to-date and the communication with the parents is poor. The facilities are in need of extreme improvement. On the plus side, there are a few teachers there who are adequate enough to do their jobs. Even one educator who is above average. Overall, their technology, facilities and parental communication are not up-to-par.
First rate! We started after the winter holidays, and all staff and students were extremely helpful and welcoming. There is a great staff/student ratio. There also seems to be a fairly good amount of parent involvement, and there are a lot of extracurricular activities and opportunities for parents to get more involved. Staff/parent communication is also good.
Montessori Academy is a wonderful school. They have very dedicated teachers who follow the child and enhance each child's learning. They model values and instill these into the children. They create a learning environment that meets the needs of each child and makes learning fun. The teachers go above and beyond.
Montessori Academy has done very well with our two children. They have excelled in reading and are showing improvements in writing. There are activities available, but with being such a small school, they are limited. Parents are very involved and are definately encouraged by the staff.
Great school! when the kid loves going to school, excited every morning and doesn't want to miss even one day, it says all. Both my children go there. I don't even think about moving them to somewhere else.
Excellent school, great environment. The school focuses on providing a scholarly, healthy, innovative environment dedicated to excellence, independence and enthusiasm for life-long learning. They seek to balance academic excellence, personal integrity, environmental awareness and global responsibility. The school emphasizes the core Montessori philosophy through the use of multi-age classrooms, authentic Montessori materials, and a Montessori-trained faculty, and expands on this with contemporary teaching and access to educational technology. We augment our program with Outdoor Environment, an agriculture curriculum, honor council, special education, a full 'virtues curriculum' and gifted childrens programs.
When a school makes 'the box' fit around the child and not the child fit into 'the box' it could not be any better. Montessori Academy is a splendid place to grow and learn.
This school is a fantastic school which allows children to learn at their own pace. There are things getting taught in Kindergarten that are just starting to get taught in higher grades elsewhere. My daughter is completely happy and comfortable with everyone there. It is smaller and the teacher per student ratio is great as well. It's a great school even my mom has commented on how she wants her granddaughter to stay there as long as she can.
