I have been familiar with this school since my first child enrolled back in 2000. I have to say that the school has gone through many changes since then, most notably the opening of a 2nd newer and cleaner facility with key card entry in the Fall of 2006. The program is now more well-rounded and the teachers are still FABULOUS!

Fantastic and Excellent in every way. I would recommend this school to anyone, anytime. Teachers are fantastic. Some of the teachers have been there from the time the school started 20 years ago. My son is a very happy here and loves all the teachers. Infact, I am sad that they don't have elementary school and I have to look for school elsewhere. Yeah!! for Oak Knoll.....

The quality of teaching and low student/teacher ratio make this our favorite montessori facility. Our daughter was enrolled in MCDC and Growing Place but seemed to show the most advancement while at this school. The extracurriculars are limited however and they need to improve their security.

Academics is pretty much restricted to Math and reading only. Good emphasis is put on these but not much is done outside of these 2 subjects. Although Music is present in the form of piano lessons and some singing, it is of poor quality. Extracirricular activities are also minimal. Parent involvement is limited to providing daily snacks.

This is a fabulous school. Ms. Candy and all of her wonderful teachers convey their pure love of learning and teaching children every day. My daughter benefited immensely from having the great privelege of being taught by the awesome staff. They are one of a kind and anyone that has the opportunity to place their children in this school should jump at the chance.

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.
