This school is now subsumed into Maranatha Child Development Center, which was actually great. Canyon Montessori, however, was/is not good when it was its own entity. Our child's first year she loved her teacher, but all through her second year there she was afraid of the quite stern and irritable teacher. Worse, and I think this applies to both years, they taught her minimal letter writing, drawing, and scissors skills, such that at 4 years old and at a new (and great) small school, she is behind. Our daughter is quite smart and catching up very quickly, so clearly the gap was in the poor emotional fostering and the poor instruction. At her new school there are 8 kids and 2-3 teachers, she is learning to write her letters, and she is happier there and at home. Do not spend the several hundred per month on Canyon Montessori if it should ever return to its free-standing state.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
