This is a good school for children who can handle the homwork load anad the push to perform at least 1 year above grade level.

This school provided advanced homework and expects the children to work at an advanced, independent pace. This obviously is used to attract parents to the school. Unfortunately, the instructors prefer to continue at an advance pace, rather than to encourage students to work on their basics. Resulting in the child moving on to another level of a subject without actually aquiring a complete understanding.

Great teachers. My son has attended this school for several years and it's been great. The only negative issue is the Director, but the teachers work hard and love the children.

Our daughter has attended Oneonta Montessori since she was 3 years old. The quality of the education she has received has been exceptional. The curriculum constantly challenges the students and amazes the parents. This past week our daughter's class was exposed to the dissection of a fetal pig - at 7 years old! She came home raving about how interesting the experience was. There is also a poetry contest, a spelling bee, and a science fair each year. We highly recommend this school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
