Do your research before enrolling. We had our preschooler there for a year and we were very disappointed with school overall. Although they claim to work with a child's developmental level, they only want a certain type of child there. They have way too many students packed into a classroom. So don't expect any individual attention for your child. Very impersonal for the amount of tuition. Also, there was quite a bit of dysfunction at Primanti. This school had a load of citations for safety, staff/student ratio, and cleanliness from the county. There were about 9 violations in 6 months. They also changed directors three times in 6 months. Unfortunately, this school is not what it seems.

Need to improve teacher to student ratio for the price. This school lacks leadership and management is reflecting on the downward spiral this school os making.

My son has been a student at Primanti since November 2011. He has been in the toddler and Primary rooms and I have nothing but great things to say about his experiences. Alexander has blossomed under the care of his teachers, first Ms. Sharma and now my Ms. V and Ms. Diaz. He is learning addition, writing skills, geography I am amazed on how much he has been able to absorb. His vocabulary is that of a much older child and he has a confidence and self awareness that is remarkable. These teachers really seem to love what they are doing, which shows in the care, kindness and patience that they give to these kids. My son is an only child and can be difficult to direct but they keep him motivated and on task I appreciate all that they have done and will have him in this school for the coming years.

Primanti Montisorri was such a great find for our family. We never intended to send our children to a private school, but we stumbled upon the school when looking for day care for my toddler...now both of my school age children attend and we will likely continue as long as possible. The teachers are extremely dedicated and caring, and my children both love going to school each day. In addition to the emphasis on high quality academics, the school creates a loving and supportive community for the children. I am so thankful to have found this special place.

Both of my daughters went to this school. My older daughter started here when she was almost 4. Within months she started reading and writing. The teachers are experienced, attentive, and loving. Not all Montessori schools are the same. My daughter is a living proof that this method and this school particularly, give results. I'm so happy I found this school and if I still live in the neighborhood, I would have kept my kids there for a long time.

Our duaghter attended here from age 2 to age 5, we thought all montessori schools were this great.....Wonderful teachers, staff (especially Mr Q) and even a great nutritional lunch program. A+. We had to move and haven't found any other Montessori near as good.

My son has attended Primanti Montessori School from the first through the fifth grade. He is happy, learning, being challenged, and has had wonderful teachers skilled in Montessori techniques, which have been great for him. I highly recommend the institution and think the investment for tuition is well worth it. If you are looking for a small, intimate, diverse environment where students are in multi-grade classes (first graders are with second and third graders, etc.), which causes a fair amount of older students helping younger ones and Montessori techniques are practiced, I highly recommend Primanti Montessori School. The school has before and after school care given by the same teachers that teach during the day and has a number of extra curricular options, including karate, science enrichement, and computer classes. Parents are involved just as much as they want to be (with no required service hours).

My kids love going to school here! My daughter started to read just after turning 4 and my son amazes me with his math. I wish there were more sports programs available to choose from, but otherwise I recommend this school!

My daughter has thrived at this school! The academics are amazing! The small size provides for individual attention. Plus they teach the children to be well mannered and respectful!
