Shalom Montessori is a farce. It shames my religion to have a facility like it affiliated with Judaism. There is no concern for the children, they are often left alone, diapers unchanged, teachers are inexperienced, and are really more like sitters ( and not ones that I would even leave my child with for a short time, much less all day.) We got out of there as quickly as we could, and I am hoping that my precious child will recover from the neglect he experienced at the hands of "Shalom Montesorri". The reviews are right, there is no consistency, and decent teacher leaves quickly, children sleep on cold floors, the owners only care about making money, not about the precious children they are responsible for. Shame on you, Shalon Montessori. Parents, due your research, do not listen to reviews written by the owners.

I would not, under any circumstance recommend this school to anyone. Aside from the fact that the school is dirty, many of the works are either in sub-par shape or completely broken, there are no security measures in place, many days our son's diaper was only changed once in the 8 hour period he was there (we know this because we use cloth diapers), the fact of the matter is that the owner of the school manipulated and lied to us on several occasions. After getting to know other parents and background regarding the school, I came to find out that 75% of the families who attended the school in the 2012-2013 school year did not return the following year due to similar concerns. It was not out of the norm for parents to pick up their children only to walk into a room with no adult supervision. In some instances, toddlers were left completely unattended. It was not uncommon to pick up your child and find their diaper completely soaked through. Please, if you are even considering this school, do research. Contact parents who have left and learn the truth behind Shalom Montessori.

Shalom Montessori at McCormick Ranch is a place of safety for the emotions of a child that sets the stage for the excellence of the academics they present. After many interviews, having taught and knowing many professional teachers as close friends, this school is the place where my child has soared. Not only has my child grown academically but in becoming more responsible and aware. This is what sets Shalom apart from other more traditional private schools.

Shalom Montessori is an amazing school. I moved cross country just so my children could have a proper education and to be in an environment where bulling just does not happen. If I was to be asked if I regret the move that I made I would say not at all. The move was for my children so they would be happy. When I come to pick them up they come to me with a smile and tell me what an amazing day they have just had, they are so sad that is it summer and can not wait for the new school year. I will always support this school because it has changed my children for the better. Shalom Montessori is a school that I highly recommend to everyone.

We moved from the public school system to Shalom Montessori last school year. We have been very happy with the level of education and care are children are receiving. Our children are thriving in this warm environment and are excited to go to school everyday. We highly recommended this school to any family who wants quality education and a warm loving staff and director.

Shalom Montessori is an incredible environment for any child. The administrator and teachers are caring, competent and wonderful. Both my husband and I cannot believe the level at which our children are learning. It is an ADvancED Accredited school with a strong curriculum that challenges all. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. We also love that it is a green school and that they care about our children from all aspects.

My daughter has been at Shalom Montessori for about 6 months, since Nov 2012. I LOVE to see how happy she is when she sees her teachers , and friends. I am very impressed by all that she learns daily, & especially listening to her singing Hebrew songs, songs about caring for others, how important it is to give tzedakah (charity) to those in need. After lunch there is an area where the children rinse their own dishes, and a place for them to put them away. I truly recommend this school to anyone who truly cares about their child's education, and well being!

We've been with Shalom Montessori for over 5 years now and it's been a blessing to our kids and a wonderful education experience. This montessori has amazing staff and a great curriculum which benefits the kids big time. Even though it is a Jewish oriented school, it is very open to all races and religions which teaches the kids about tolerance and being kind and open to other including animals and the planet. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This is an amazing school. The teachers are warm, inviting and friendly and the administration competent and fair. The new location is a beautiful picturesque dream and my children cannot wait to go to school every morning. I am extremely impressed by the strong academics, both secular and Jewish. This school is a unique product that nay child would be fortunate to have.

I love the innovative curriculum at Shalom Montessori along with the enthusiasm that the students have for learning and being part of the community. I love that they are not only a Jewish school, the best in the valley, but that they are also a green school. They care about my son on every level. This school is a gem and I am so happy that we found it. I love their new location and the amazing Tuesday farmer's market.

I love this school! Before I heard of this school, I transferred my oldest daughter to several schools within the same year... Once I heard of this school, I put my second daughter in there and she's been in there since. I've watched it grow over the past 3 years and they've maintained their integrity. It's a very positive, nurturing environment that's dedicated equally to academics, social, & emotional development of the child. The teachers are excellent, they know each child's charms, they give nonstop feedback, and they welcome parental involvement. I shouldn't really tell everyone--the school is Arizona's best kept secret!
