If you can get Ms Meghan for pre primary, you'll be fine. The program there is great, my kid always seemed happy and brought home great work.

The teachers greet me whenever I arrive for either of my grandchildren and seem enthusiastic. My grandson was reading by age four and knew his letters when he was two and loves going to school. They put on a great and ambitious production for the entire school each year. His younger sister has just started and seems to be following in his footsteps.

My son attended Growing Place for 2 yrs. His first teacher was not very nice to deal with & she had trouble handling the kids. His second teacher was nice but they didn't really help him academically. The facility is nice yet the academics are lacking.

My daughter has been attending The Growing Place for over a year now and I am extremely pleased. I visited a lot of Montessori schools and am very happy with my choice. I find the teachers to be very loving and it is very obvious that they love their jobs. I will definitly have my daughter attend private kindergarten there.

I found most of the teachers are not loving. When you drop you kid to school they don't welcome or greet the kid. Otherwise the school is ok.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
