Montessori is a great concept & Mission has it figured out. However, it is no good if everyone is on a different page, which they are changing. However, as heard through many sources, administration communicates poorly. Also, assistant teachers change often or are not educated enough to deal with children appropriately. Parent involvement is fine, however, homework is often sent to the parents & children are not necessarily responsible to be reminded, parents are made aware to help out. That is certainly wonderful. However, kids need to learn responsibility as well. The school is one of the best in the state of az. It is not enough to hear they are great. It would be satisfying to learn more about facts. Teachers and assistants are not always of the same page. I keep seeing teachers staying with the school. Assistants however leave & oftentimes within one school year the classroom has several assistants. Be persistent with this school & administration if you care for a Montessori education. The school does great. They are working on it, be sure of it. This school year has many changes & I can tell they are working hard to make it work & even better, listening to parents more.

Our family has been part of Mission Montessori now for 9 years. This school is more than just a place where my kids learn the standard subjects like Math, reading etc. Although all 3 of my kids exceed the state standards in testing, that is not why I continue to choose this school. This school is a place that believes in fostering community, creativity and independent thinking. I went to public school for most of my life and I just wish I had a school like Mission Montessori when I was a child. While a lot of schools are cutting out programs like Art and Music, Mission is adding more specials to their program. The work that these children are able to problem solve and create projects is mind blowing. I wouldn't even consider sending my kids anywhere else. I love this school and the community of parents here is second to none. I am truly grateful that this school exists and I am honored that my kids have a place of peace to learn on their way to becoming adults. If you are looking for a great school that truly cares, you have found the right place. Schedule a tour with them and see just how different and great it really is for yourself.

My daughter has been with Mission Montessori Academy since the 1st grade and recently graduated from 8th. The holistic nature of my daughter s education is by far one of my favorite qualities of this program. She has not only learned the necessary curriculum per state standards, but she has also been taught skills that will help her both in the classroom and out. The enthusiasm and knowledge of the staff is another quality that makes this program so special, plus the way the teachers make use of different materials, technologies and even the outdoors as teaching platforms. Throughout the years I have seen my daughter grow and mature, but never as fast or as markedly as she has during her years in middle school. While she has certainly been allowed to be her fun-loving self (and that s very important to me), she has learned to be poised when speaking before a room full of strangers, she has learned organizational skills that will take her through high school and beyond, and she has learned to be responsible for her self and her work every step of the way. Thank you, Mission Montessori, for helping me raise a young woman who will undoubtedly make this world a better place.

Great teachers and curriculum through 3rd grade. The upper elementary and middle school is a question mark. A lot of changes and confusion. Administration only cares about upper elementary and middle school wanting all parents to give money to support it while not supporting the lower levels, tunnel vision. It's very frustrating and sad for students not in those grades.

I have a child in 7th grade and I have concerns. I'm likely going to trust my instinct and move on from this school. The two teachers at our campus are amazing, I hate to leave them. But I see no leadership, and I have no idea who is the 'principal'. It's sad that these two awesome teachers have no help. But we can not operate like Little House on the Prairie, we need organizational structure. Our 'teachers' cannot administrate. This school is a good idea that needs a little more work. Sadly, time moves on and we can't wait for Mission St George to figure things out. The teachers for 7th and 8th are wonderful, but for me, this school is not.

I am a parent of a Kindergartener at Mission Montessori and I just have to comment on the parent who claimed that Mission Montessori's test scores are LOW (in caps as he/she stated). Mission Montessori's student's test scores ranked 36th in the state (out of about 1200 schools) last year for the elementary school grades and 11th among the other middle schools in the state. Mission Montessori outperformed many (most) other Scottsdale schools. This information is available to anyone. I'm not sure where this parent is getting their information, but they are mistaken. That is, unless this parent thinks that scoring in the top 5% of schools state-wide is low. Not only do children enjoy learning and going to school, but they are performing extremely well too. Win-win in my book. Thank you Mission Montessori!

Mission Montessori (E2) is our children's "second home". We moved to the valley 2 years ago and were quite lucky to get into this charter. Our children our thriving in this school. They love their teachers and refer to them as the smartest people they have ever met. Our son went from an uninterested "average" student to an inspired excellent student after being in this fabulous environment. If you are looking for the highest quality teachers in the valley, they work at Mission. Our 10 year old son spent the summer talking about early humans. Our 11 year old daughter is blossoming into a thoughtful global citizen. The majority of their work is done at school and therefore allows "kids to be kids" after school. The sustainable systems program is amazing. The 5th graders attend Catalina Island Marine Institute for a week and the 6th graders work all year on position papers that they present at the model UN in NYC. If you want your child in a challenging but compassionate environment filled with unique learning opportunities, this is your school. Our only regret is that we weren't here for the early years!

This school is amazing! My daughter started here at 16 weeks old in the infant room with Mrs. Debbie. Mrs. Debbie and the other teachers are so wonderful with the infants. It is such a calm and peaceful environment. My daughter is now three years old and in the primary program with Mrs. Ryan. This school has helped shape our daughter into an independent, creative and a critical thinker. She is excelling on every level and I always get compliments wherever we go on how well behaved she is. All of the teachers and staff are wonderful at Mission Montessori. This school is a gem and we feel so lucky to have found it.

Just a quick note from a parent perspective after returning from the first Immersion trip in Prescott. I did not know what to expect like most of you experiencing this for the first time. I can honestly say I had a wonderful time sharing this with my daughter, her classmates and teachers. Ms. Joslyn, Ms. Caitlin, Mr. Hawkinson and Chandon from After Cool Outdoors, run a tight and very productive ship! I was greatly impressed with all aspects of the trip from goal setting and thankfuls to the eco challenge and the designing of their Rube Goldberg contraption. It was awesome to see the kids in a different environment, sometimes out of their comfort zone, yet using what they have been taught in the Montessori classroom. I think these are important steps in the right direction in these tough adolescent years. This is a wonderful program that we are so fortunate to have offered at our very own school! I hope everyone attending Mission will get the opportunity to take part in this community building adventure.

Mission Montessori my 3 children have attended for almost 3 years. Every comment below and future comments are people's opinions- some good, some bad. FACTS: Test scores very low. Why so many students need extra help in Math and do so poorly in Math even though they are in school for 7-8 hours. How they applaud mediocrity (at best). Check out the so called "band" program. The school is a Charter School and basically governs itself. The AZ Board of Ed has no jurisdiction over them. So, ask yourself, what happens if there's an issue at the school and you don't feel they handle it appropriately? Well, they are the final say. To state my opinion or anyone stating their opinion for that matter, really is subjective. Do what any educated consumer would do to make an inform decision...look at the facts. Don't make the same mistake as so many parents have made keeping there children in this school because they are nice people only to remove them and finding that other schools are better. You only have one time to properly educate your children. Don't regret your decision.

Mission Montessori excels at providing the highest in quality and support for our children. We have two children who are in the program. We couldn't be happier with their progress and the effectiveness of the administration to offer excellent resources so our children will advance. The intensive summer bridge program that was provided for our daughter to transition from Kindergarten to first grade was very beneficial. Te children were introduced to their new campus and were able to get their bearings before the official start of the year. We were recommended to Mission by close family friends an we highly reccomend it!

My daughter is currently in the 5th grade at Mission Montessori and started attending Mission when she was 4 years old. Her experience here has been wonderful. She has been challenged in her academics at the right level the entire way. All of her teachers have been great in primary (130th St. campus), elementary one (96th St. campus) and now in elementary 2 (Larkspur campus). My personal interactions with the administration has always been positive. I continue to be amazed at how they work around the state's budget cuts handed to them yet continue to provide a wonderful environment and education.

Exceptional school. Our children have attended Mission Montessori from pre-school through upper elementary. It's a hard balancing act between state testing and a true Montessori curriculum but this school succeeds -even on the much more limited budget afforded charter schools in AZ . Each classroom has 3 teachers and administration on the grounds every day so I have a hard time understanding people complaining about staff to child ratio or lack of admin involvement. Montessori is all about older children helping younger children as well as kindness and compassion. The one time in 8 years we experienced a child making fun of one my kids the situation was addressed immediately and well. At Mission,kids experience animal care, gardening, art, music, language and PE. Children are able to enjoy working outside in a garden environment on their regular school work. This is a magical place. The staff cares, the parents care and the students care. Your children will be brighter, smarter, kinder people for attending here. And yes, I am a parent. Contact Mission admin and request a call back from this posting and I will confirm and happily recommend Mission to you personally. LS

I have two kids in middle school. They had attended 5 schools prior to this one (we moved a lot) and I can honestly say this school is the best! They truly get to know your child and the environment is welcoming, small and tailored to each individual child's learning style and capabilities. Kids are moved up in Math based on their abilities, not on what grade they are supposed to be at. That means my son is able to work on high school level Math even though he's not in high school yet and he's not bored with a lower-level book waiting for the other students to "catch up" like in regular public schools where "no child is left behind" and everyone works at the same pace. This also works in reverse, when a child is a little worse in a subject, and because everyone works at their own pace, no one is made fun of for working in a lower book that the average. The parents are VERY involved in the school and the teachers are AWESOME. Most kids will have the same teacher for a few years, especially in the upper grades. I only wish they had a high school :)

I read the varying comments to date with interest, because I'm just on this site to consider moving my daughter up to the next level at Mission. We have been there for 4 years and couldn't be happier. There is an expression I've heard that may help: Montessori is for every child, but it's not for every parent. If you really believe that testing and homework is evidence of learning, you may feel something's lacking. I just watch my child's amazing progress compared to peers in public school, and I know what's working. Plus, the kids are so happy! I don't really think the administration leadership is a problem. They just don't have as much regimented structure/ processes/ forms/ procedures as a public school. It takes getting used to if you prefer government bureaucracy.

I had my 3 children at this school and I'm moving them out one by one as fast as I can. This school is awful and I made a HUGE mistake allowing my children to be in this school for two years. Academics isn't important to this school, but indoctrinating them into an extreme leftist mindset is. You'll notice the schools test scores are going down, that's because they think it is more important to learn about how the United nations is going to save the world than it is to teach my children how to write well thought through sentences and paragraphs and how to think critically about issues from both sides of the issue. I read other parents calling this a progressive school. I beg to differ, this school should have their charter taken away as I gave them children scoring in the 95% and they returned me children who hate school and now score in the 60% range.

In my experience, Mission Montessori has provided a rich, globally aware, deeply caring education for my two daughters, helping them not only grow in academics, but become more self-confident and stronger leaders, tapping into their unique passions and talents. Moving here one year ago, I was delighted to find such a gem of a school and community amidst a ton of more traditional schools in Scottsdale. This school attracts open-minded, internationally aware, forward-thinking families. The Model UN program was an incredible experience and the Pay It Forward program (check out Fox TV's coverage) is powerful to teach children about abundance and generosity. Mission is not afraid to do something cutting edge. Yes, like any school, there are positives and negatives. If you want things to be run like a tight ship, you may be challenged here from time to time. But if you've read the latest on brain research, you know that the prepared environment and Montessori approach to teaching give kids an edge in really integrating and applying their learning in life. For me, Mission is a great place to nurture the resonant talent and passions within my girls.

I am one of the parents who posted a 5 star review in April which a reader deemed "fishy" (I can be reached by email or telephone for anyone who believes this is written by "the Administration"). I did so just after returning from our class trip to the UN in NYC, where my daughter had one of the best experiences of her life! The next week, she went to CIMI with her class and learned about marine biology. I thought to myself, at what other school in the Valley could she have had those experiences? No matter what one disgruntled parent writes about Mission Montessori, I would hope readers of this site look past that individual's private vendetta and focus instead on the numerous 5 star reviews and what they see about the school on TV and in the news. Mission Montessori has been a wonderful experience for my kids for the last 6 years. They have evolved into socially-conscious, kind, tolerant, intelligent, self-directed learners with an insatiable curiosity about the world around them.

Mission Montessori it is more than a School it is a community to develop global citizens. I have my 2 children in the school, one in K and the other 1st grade. We moved last year from Hawaii, and from all the choices we looked at, this school contains all what we were looking for our children. The teachers really care for the kids and I feel that there is a sense of community. The school is great in teaching higher principles of living for the kids; the y have a "Pay it Forward" award and recently they sent a delegation of students to the UN to advocate for a better world. Like any other school you will find good and bad things; however the good things are way better than the bad things. Overall I am very pleased with them.

This year, there was a lot of restructuring and classroom moves which made for a lot of challenges. Parents considering Montessori need to realize that it entails a minimum 3 year commitment between grade levels, where the teacher will be able to spend more time on instruction because they will know your child well by the end of 3 years. Other countries lead the world because of such best practices. Children who start Montessori after first grade, who are not naturally self-motivated, may need more time to develop the independent work habits needed to succeed in the classroom. Parents who just want to try Montessori for a year and give up before the real work is done, should consider other programs. The more you educate yourself about the Montessori method, the more you will understand your child and help them fly higher than imaginable. Montessori has transformed me into a better parent. My children are more independent, happy, and compassionate learners with academic AND emotional intelligence thanks to Montessori guides who are skilled and loving.

I totally agree with the parent who posted that it seems the admin is posting 5 star ratings. My son is thankfully at a different school now and since being at a different school, more and more parents are leaving Mission and coming to the school my son is at. It is so sad to continuously hear the same stories from these moms about poor admin...they do not care whether your child leaves. They just replace that child with another one. Same story different day, ADMIN: stick with your primary campus and stop trying to grow...it's not working!

Mission Montessori Rocks! My son has been a student for the past 3 years and enjoys his classmates, teachers & school tremendously. When he moved from sensory learning to reading and writing - his teacher noticed immediately that he was having difficulty and modified his work accordingly so he could advance with confidence. We recently discovered he is color deficient and has focusing problems - thanks to the observation and exam recommendation by the school's special needs teacher. Although I consider myself an observant parent, I would never have diagnosed or responded as quickly and compassionately as the administration and staff at Mission Montessori has. They consistently strive to do what is in the best interest of the child - every child is equally important and respected, regardless of our family and cultural preferences. I have always had high expectations of Mission Montessori and this year, they have successfully started a middle school and expanded the campuses to accomodate our growth with 4 locations. Congratulations! Thank you EVERYONE at Mission Montessori!

Mission Montessori is a gem of a school. Both my daughters, (grades 2 and 6) have flourished academically here (lots of critical thinking and high scores on standardized testing), and will continue through 8th. The extra programs, such as sustainable gardening, music, Spanish and animals all round out a true Montessori environment. We are thrilled Mission has expanded with a middle school, as those years are so important developmentally- and it's a phenomenal program. All of the teachers are well educated, experienced, and connected to the students. They know the specific needs and personalities of all the kids- which is remarkable- and treat the students with kindness and respect. In regards to communication with the administration: the few occasions in the past several years where I requested time with the principal, she was available within the week. I was able to have sincere and heartfelt discussions and the administration was responsive and receptive. I drive half an hour each way to take my girls here- the school is worth it!

I have never seen administrators work so hard to make a school that is good for kids. I have been so impressed with what I have seen this year. Besides being an Excelling and "A" school, they have opened up a middle school, sent their students to the Model UN in New York City , are planning white water rafting down the Grand Canyon, going to Catalina Island for science. And I know they give hours of their time to parents and students because they care. I wish I could have sent my kids to a school like that.

MISSION MONTESSORI HAS BEEN A GIFT to my children & has exceeded all expectations I ever could have had for an elementary school. I have a daughter in 6th grade (student at Mission since 1st grade) and a son in 2nd grade. I feel like Mission Montessori has instilled in them a love of learning, self-confidence, has helped them excel academically, but also inspired them to be altruistic, tolerant, and has opened their eyes to world issues. They have become empowered learners as well as teachers themselves. They feel confident public-speaking, and are able to effectively research topics independently. There have been field trips to the United Nations, ranches, marine biological institutes, etc. I am somewhat perplexed by the (albeit very rare) negative review this school has received, but suspect that isolated review was a result of a parent's disappointment that the teachers would not compromise their Montessori philosophy, nor their integrity, to yield to unreasonable parental demands that were in opposition to a peaceful, tolerant learning environment. I feel very fortunate that my children have such wonderful teachers.

We have two amazing children in Mission and we could not be happier! Our daughter is in 6th grade and our son is in 3rd. The school has constantly maintained an average ratio of 1:10 student/teacher. Our children have been able to take advantage of many opportunities to teach them about working together as a community through various school field trips (to ranches in rural AZ, Catalina Island, the UN, etc.) that they could never experience in public schools. Our daughter has been continually challenged and encouraged to reach for the stars. Our son has excelled despite some visual challenges, which we strongly feel is because of the active participation of the strong and proactive administration. I believe the dissatisfaction that others have expressed is because they have not truly embraced the Montessori method in their homes/ school/ world environments.

I find the staff totally dedicated to bring out the best in every child at all .levels. They are Awsome! What a wonderful, well rounded education.

The academics at this school are lacking. My child had virtually no homework - perhaps because the teachers were lazy - and lack a well rounded education of the basics such as reading, writing, math, history, geography, and sciences. When my son took the Basis exam he only scored high in math and low on all other topics despite his his AIMS scores which were in the 95% range. The teachers - male and female team - failed to teach spelling, have many book reports, encourage the children to grow, etc. My children hated every day of their lives at this school, which is full of mean children. And the school also tends to focus WAY too much on indoctrinating your child into the liberal mindset without any balanced objective analysis completed, which teaches your child how to critically think about issues. I would never suggest this school to anyone who want their child to receive a good education.

I have read some of the comments that have been made about Mission Montessori administration and I have to disagree with these comments. My grandson is in the 4th grade and has been with the school since the 1st grade. The quality of education and the teachers are above anything that I have seen in other schools. My grandson did have some issues, and the administraion was wonderful in every way they spent hours with my daughter and son-inlaw over the issues and I couldn't have been happier with the results. The administration has let me ask any questions no matter how small it may be. I am so proud to say that my grandson attended Mission Montessori School.

I am a teacher at Mission and I must respond to the most recent negative reviews. The impression of both reviewers could not be further from the truth. Yes, a teacher did leave over the weekend but the reason is private. She was not fired but the Teachers and the Administration, as a Team, decided to honor the teacher's privacy and not share with the parents the reason for her departure. The school was the one left holding the bag when this teacher basically disappeared over the weekend. After the departure, we worked very hard to move that class forward with a new team of teachers. Personally, I think we did a great job. As far as the second negative comment, Mission is a school based on Montessori philosophy and curriculum which emphasis inclusion, diversity and respect for all cultures and values. This school has never represented any religion or had any religious affiliation. The administration is involved in every aspect of our school. They embrace the staff and the entire school community. They know every child in this school and are concerned with the well being of each one. They are always willing to listen and change. This is what makes them great!

It is interesting to read the back and forth negative and positive reviews. Does Mission Montessori provide a great education? Absolutely - look at the test scores. Has Mission Montessori suffered from the state cutbacks in education and some growing pains? Of course, as have most schools. I believe there is no perfect school, but if you are looking for a bright, welcoming physical environment (this school actually has windows unlike so many public ones), well-educated, experienced and dedicated teachers, and diverse programming (Spanish, music and sustainable systems), then this may be the school for your family. Trying to operate a high quality Montessori school in a public charter setting is pretty challenging. Mission does a pretty great job of mixing the two. These are some of the reasons our children have been at Mission for years and will continue for the forseeable future.

I am a teacher at Mission Montessori. I have been a teacher for 20 years. I have taught 5 years at Mission Montessori and I can honestly say, this is the best administration I have worked under and I have worked under great administrators in my 20 years of teaching. Mission Montessori Academy is an Excelling school and an A rated school. It is because of the guidance of this administration that this school is at this level of success!

My children have attended this school for two years. I gave them two kids excited to learn, and two years later they return two kids that cry every Sunday night because they hate their class. The class is over full with about 45 students in a room where there should only by 30 or so. I can't blame the teachers per se, but had I been told the class was going to be over crowded, I wouldn't have them in the school. I would never suggest any parent put their child in this school. They don't seem to care about the children's spirit and they're only into academics. And for Christians, you definitely don't want them in this school.

Our child has attended Mission Montessori Academy since the third grade and we were very pleased when the school added a seventh and eighth grade classroom. We love the school and its attention to "following the child" and having them learn with hands on experience. Our child is always challenged by his teacher and we don't worry about him being bored waiting for the whole class to get to the same spot. His teacher keeps him constantly progressing. It is a relief to know that he can continue in the same environment after sixth grade and most importantly be very prepared for his future high school experience.

My two children attended Mission for a year. We chose not to go back. The teachers are great from what I experienced, but definitely overwhelmed with the ratios here. That would be the director's fault and not theirs, they do their absolute best. The administration on the other hand is tremendously inefficient. The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing, especially if your child goes to one of their satellite campuses. When they make a mistake, which can be often, they never take ownership. It was excruciating dealing with them. It is too bad because the teachers are good. If you never have to deal with the administration, it could be worth it, but woe to you if you do. I have never encountered such below the line behavior from "professional" people. We met the principal at the beginning of the year and in a flash she was gone. We never did get one after that. Very disorganized. I don't think the admin can handle it. Was probably a great school when they first opened.

We love this school. Our son who has attended since preschool is now in second grade. When I saw him stand in front of his entire class in 1st grade and present his book report with confidence and ease I knew this was the place. He now excels above his grade average for both Math and English and is a very independent learner.

A tremendous environment. After being at 2 other schools, we found Mission and couldn't be happier. The Mission team has created an environment and assembled a staff that allows children to grow. I have watched my son and his classmates grow and advance so quickly. It is an amazing place and I recommend anyone looking for a school where a child can grow and learn...and love it...to visit one of the campuses.

To respond to the negative review below, the teachers are not cold. Both of my children (ages 2 and 4) go there and we could not be happier with the teachers and thier level of care.Many of the teachers are bilingual (French, Russian, Polish, Spanish) and that is a huge advantage. The children learn many sounds and have a good ear as a result. As far as kids not fitting in, I have a hard time believing anyone would say that as they are welcoming to new students all the time. The children are taught to respect on another and it is not a competive or clicky place in any way.

I have so many wonderful compliments to give MMA that I will run out of space. I have three children attending and this is our family s second year. We moved from another State and have attended other Montessori schools in this State and the one we moved from. This school is hands down the best. ALL teachers are well trained and Love the students. It is apparent in how much my children have blossomed. The school has suffered budget cuts as have all public and charter schools in AZ. The teachers have such a strong commitment to our community all offered creative suggestions to help our school and because of this the quality of education has not altered. It is a privilege to be a part of such a great community of parents, teachers and administrators.

The turnover in the last 6 months at this school has been enormous. In the pre-school age children the only great teachers left are Ms. Danka and Ms. Maura. Many teachers have moved within the last several months and there have been budget cuts and pay cuts galore! The teachers are overwhelmed and the ratios are insane!

Since some administrator keeps responding to these negative reviews, I just have to add my own experience. I toured this school twice in 3 years time and what I observed is this: 1-Preschool teachers who were extremely cold to the kids, just ordering them around, 2-A Kindergarten teacher who didn't speak English well showing a kid how to write something INCORRECTLY, and most disturbing, 3-My guide (a school administrator) actually said to me, "Your child probably wouldn't fit in the Kindergarten here since these kids have been together since they were 3." I mean, seriously? How can you possibly defend that?

I must respond to the person who said Mission Montessori does not have certified Montessori teachers. I am an administrator at Mission Montessori and I can assure you every teacher is certified either AMI or AMS. This school adhears to the true principles of Marie Montessori. All certifications are available to all who enter the office. They are located in a 3 ring binder in the reception room. It is obvious that this person has the wrong school..

We moved from out of state and researched all the Montessori schools in the Scottsdale area. This was by far the best school we saw and we have been very happy so far. Our son is in the toddler program and our daughter is in the primary class. Both of them are very happy and excited to go to school each day. The teachers follow the Montessori methods and the materials are authentic. The school is a warm and inviting place for both children and parents.

I am a parent who had 2 children at Mission Montessori from K - 6 grade 7 years and I would have stayed until 12 TH if they had it !! Our Family built our life around this school as my children were in a calm peaceful natural surrounding . The Teachers were good - My children scored high and the school scored as one of the top schools in the state. My children are now in 8th and 10th grade and their grades are the highest in the school here in California and they both constantly Thank their Teachers k - 6 for teaching them how to learn and for the wonderful lessons over the years . And I must say the Garden is the heart of the school and Virtues are the heart of the garden . We are forever grateful for Mission Montessori Scottsdale.

The previous parent review was not at all factual nor accurate. Mission Montessori Academy is one of the most authentic Montessori schools in the country. We are a charter school, and are required by the state to administer yearly testing. This is in no way takes away from the mission our school holds so dear. It is a rarity for a parent, his/her family, and child were not a good fit for our school and have have another agenda. We have parents that faithfully volunteer each day in our classrooms, and we love their participation. Does this parent have the wrong school in mind? We continually get recognition from our friendly, and beautiful school. Our extensive wait list is a tribute of the job we are doing in each and every classroom, and with the children.

I am shocked that this school rated a 10. I know of many parents, myself included, who have yanked their kids from this charter. The parents are a great group, but the school itself does not foster community (parents are not welcome in class or on campus). It does not follow a true montessori method due to their need to comply to state requirements for charter funding, does not manage bullying or cliques even in lower grades and does not offer a fulfilling experience for creative or gifted students. The teachers and staff were cold and rude to me and when I visited the class they were rude to the children too. As much as I would like to support a charter montessori I can't recommend this one!

My husband and I have four children all who have attended Mission Montessori and one who is still attending Mission Montessori. Three of our children moved to middle school after sixth grade. They chose different middle schools to meet their needs. I am pleased to say that all have done extremly well. All three were more then ready for the academic rigors of the top middle schools in Scottsdale. The scores of the upper elementary at Mission Montessori, 4th through 6th grade reveal that their students are in the 96-100 percentile. We appreciate all the staff and administration for all they have done to prepare our children for the next level of their education.

This is a great school for pre-school through third grade. Children acquire great independent learning skills. The program provides a great foundation for learning. The values-based community developed among the children is a benefit. Unfortunately fourth through sixth grade is a very weak program and the children do not get a good education. You can't count on the administration to deal with conflict or to take input/feedback and explore it or apply it.

As a new family to Mission Montessori, we have felt very supported while making the transition into a new school and state. I believe the wonderful events that we have been able to attend as a family has helped us feel a part of the community. Events such as the Fall Festival, MacDonald Ranch Hay Ride, Ice Cream Social, Book Fair, International Peace Day Parade, Dad's day and the Thanksgiving Feast have brought us into the Mission Montessori Community. It has been a wonderful experience for the whole family.

Over the past few years of having our daughters at Mission Montessori, we have been so unbelieveably impressed at the outstanding education Mission Montessori provides. From the nurturing environment in the clssroom to the extraordinary extras, gardening and art, science, Spanish, computer education, etc. We really believe that we are blessed to have found such an amazing school for our children. What Mission provides is beyond words and keeps getting better every year we have been at Mission. This has become more apparent after the wondeful parent-teacher meetings we engaged in yesterday, allowing us to see on an even deeper level, the invidual care that they so amazingly do on a daily basis. Even the extracurricular activities have been a wonderful added benefit for the children and a plus to have them right at the school for convenience. Thank you for a job well done. Gina and Bob

Mission Montessori Academy has just created a Labyrinth for the students. The children have learned about the history and the calming effect that it has on a person when walking the Labyrinth.

It is a perfect fit with their character ed and peace program. Thank you for always being on the cutting edge.

Love the school for it's primary and lower elementary program. Mission needs help with the upper elementary program and teachers. Once your child reaches upper elementary the curriculum is no longer montessori. Classrooms are too small for growing upper elementary children and children are expected to sit in one place without talking to others. Not a Montessori method. Not a true whole child environment. Cannot understand the school growing to a middle school when they have not yet mastered the upper elementary curriculum. I say keep the school small and concentrate on what was started and not move forward to something the school is not ready for.

There were over 1000 people who attened the event and who enjoyed the beautiful gardens in which the students were tour guides.

This school offers many advantages that you loose in a large school. Because it is small it is more of a family atmosphere We were new last year and from out of state, however the children were made to feel right at home from the beginning and accepted as part of the community. The parents are a wonderful group and have activities for new families such as Saturday date night. Last year we got together for dinner, Kareoke and dancing. This year they are starting off with an ice cream social for new families and old. Great staff. kids and parents in a beautiful setting.

Two years ago my family and I were asked to transfer to Scottsdale from the East coast. Our children attended one of the first and best Montessori programs in the country. We searched the internet for Montessori programs in Scottsdale and the surrounding communities and we were taken back by what Mission Montessori Academy had to offer. It has been the perfect place for my two children, and we have high expectations for Montessori programs. I am amazed that this program has been able to provide the enrichments- master gardening, hands on science- sign language, Latin, music, art, and exellent Physical Ed programs I remember when Montessori programs, before charter schools, had to charge very high tuition in order to be successful. It is also very rare to see a staff of such highly credentialed and passionate teachers teaching at the elementary level.

This school has a great outdoor garden environment and gardening program that is utilized well. Extracurricular activities are available but at an additional cost even though a $500 fee is paid yearly by each student for additional activities. Teacher qualifications are getting better but not what I expect for a Montessori program. My daughters classroom is not the best Montessori classroom I've ever seen either. I am hopeful that the homework she had last year will be reduced or better yet none at all since the Montessori curriculum is not to include paper homework. Too much paper learning in Math too. Awesome science work hands on as well as art. Reading is greatly encouraged and my daughter had a good year overall. Some discipline problems with other students but they were addressed appropriately. I'll give them one more year to become a more authentic Montessori school.

This is a school where meaningful experiences are connected to one's daily life. Learning is clearly enhanced when it is connected to something meaningful to assist learners. All subjects were covered in this project - History, Biology, Social Study, Math and Art. This project was funded by a grant from the Az. Commission of the Arts.

This is truly a wonderful school. I have been home schooling our children for the last two years. I was concerned that their social skills were delayed and they needed more interaction with children their age. I interviewed several schools with my children. Our interview at Mission went very well in fact so well our children did not want to leave. They fell in love with the campus especially the animals and gardens. The students made our children feel very welcome. Both our children wanted to start that day. As a teacher I especially like the core curriculum and it is an added bonus to have the master garden program, Latin, Spanish, Sign Language and a wonderful character ed program.

Mission Montessori must be the best school in the valley. We just transferred from a public school in Scottsdale and on our first day we had the opportunity to participate in an International Peace Day Ceremony. The students dedicated a peace pole with the words 'May Peace Prevail on Earth' in eight languages. They read poems, sang songs, related what peace meant to them and had a Native American Smudging ceremony around the pole. Mission is an ethnically diverse school and included in the program were children from eight ethnic backgrounds reading 'May Peace Prevail On Earth' in eight different languages. We felt very welcome our first day and very proud to be part of this amazing community

I have to admit that the parent involvment is phenomenal! The school allows for a lot of parent interaction and volunteer possibilities as well. There is 'opportunity' for extracurricular at an additional fee. On the down side which is a problem for me as a parent is that there appears to be more children than the teachers can handle and a lot of the one on one teacher interaction I had hoped for is virtually gone. The kids are taught to be independent and self reliant which is a Montessori enviroment although I don't feel that the amount of supervision is sufficient for this enviroment. My child constantly complains about the noise level and distraction of the classroom. Unfortunately, this also leads to problems with children getting along and respecting each other and in a small school enviroment this should be more easily addressed and handled but it is not.

A little disappointing. Coming from a private montessori school (AMS) background, we realize the montessori philosophy is on allowing the individual child to excel at his or her own pace. However, the classrooms here are very chaotic and disruptive to the point of my child not wanting to go to school. The teachers seem very frustrated as well. The gardening/outdoor curriculum is very nice. The director is also very nice and approachable. A little disappointed in Spanish only being offered every other week. We have decided that the charter school system is not a match for the educational environment that we are searching for.

I am thrilled with this school. My son thrives in first grade, learning much more than he would in a regular public school, but under no academic pressure. He reads beyond his years, knows facts about geography, science and history that usually isn't introduced until much later, and is being introduced to multiplication, division, fractions and ratios. Most importantly, he's having fun doing it. At Mission Montessori, they let a child work to his/her potential, but still let him/her be a kid. The school is more interested in kids being good people rather than just good students.

I wasn't looking for a Montessori school for my kids. I was looking for a small school with low student/teacher ratios, individualized education, a dedicated staff that truly cares, a program that nurtures the whole child, and a consistent discipline plan. I found all that and more at this school. The fact that it is Montessori meant nothing to me at the time, but has turned out to be the icing on the cake. This is a wonderful school full of people who are truly devoted to their mission. My children are learning here, more then they ever did in public school, and their test scores are great. But more importantly they have grown into confident and happy citizens who love school.
