I love the school and Iove the idea of public Montessori, but I also understand the frustration of some parents below. Some reviewers agree with that there is much at school that is not Montessori . I also believe as one parent below that CM is too political and parents are discouraged from asking questions about the curriculum. That needs to change and parents need to be asked and heard about curriculum matters too.

The teachers work hard to manage the challenge of Montessori in the public sector. The thing that gets in the way is current legislation and testing. I am sure that the angry parent below cannot know all 4 primary teachers well enough to make such a claim as s/he has.

Wow, angry parents in the previous reviews. I am not sure where the anger is coming from and why the parent feels the primary and elementary teachers do not "agree with Montessori guidelines." Based on attending PTA meetings? That is laughable! Wonderful school, wonderful experienced Montessori teachers working in a public school environment to bring Montessori education to a wider population. We love this school dearly.

My children (K and 3rd) are challenged academically, absolutely love their classrooms, adore their Montessori-trained teachers, and therefore are truly becoming lifelong learners. Couldn't ask for more.

So much for the whole "anti-bullying" that the district tries to pretend they have when the ones who bully and ostracize your child are the principal and teacher. Makes me sick still to think about. I switched schools for my child a year ago and it has been the best thing. She has grown a lot academically and has made some good friends at her school. Her teachers now are great. If you are looking for a Montessori education for your child, unfortunately you have to pay the big bucks to put them in an actual Montessori school because Community Montessori lacks in many ways.

The staff at Community Montessori is exceptionally devoted, and every student is honored and supported at their learning level. My children have thrived both academically, and in the building of desirable character traits. From the foundation received at Community Montessori I have no doubt that they will be able to succeed at the middle school level and beyond. They are learning the skills to be independent and accountable learners.

My children are both thriving at Community Montessori, socially and academically. One is in the Primary program and one is in Elementary. Both levels are beautifully equipped with Montessori materials. I am impressed with how the staff stays committed to their Montessori principles and methods within a public school setting. (This website has it listed as a charter school, which is an error. It is a focus school within the Boulder Valley School District.)

I appreciate everything the teachers and staff do everyday to give my child the best learning environment possible. I am continually amazed at the growth and development I see.

This school could be a model for Montessori in the public school system, but CM suffers from inconsistent and inexperienced Montessori teachers in the Lower El, a weak principal, and no leadership or interest in excellence. The primary program is strong, but once you get into 1st grade, your experience will be vary wildly depending on which teacher you get. There is weak alignment with BVSD standards and no partnership with parents to execute a thoughtful and challenging Montessori curriculum. CM is too political and parents are discouraged from asking questions about what is going on in the classrooms. Very disappointing; the school needs to be heavily monitored by the Administration.

If you are looking for Montessori, the preschool is, but the elementary is not. You can't cherrypick Montessori materials and methods and structuring of the day for say 50% or less of what you are doing. An awful lot of class time was spent on worksheets, but the Montessori part was the work was not checked. That only works with self discovery Montessori materials. Many materials in the classroom were makeshift, horrible quality in terms of tactile, motor, for instance, adding machine tape which was slick and curled and hard for kids to keep flat and write on--for early elem years. The classrooms at the Elem. level are also much too overcrowded (30) to have a part time aide who is not Montessori trained. Montessori classes do usu. have 30 kids but with a full time fully trained Montessori aide to facilitate. Almost all other district schools have smaller class sizes, so this is a real downside esp. when the room isn't really smoothly self functioning like a real Montessori room because of all the above factors. Teacher Montessori training varies widely, too, as is the case at all Montessori schools. Front office is exceptionally well run and warm. Parent involvement is good.

I absoluetely love this school. My two children have attended CM for the last two years and have developed as independent thinkers and learners, as well as caring communty members. They have achieved mastery of math and the mechanics of writing beyond their grade levels, and have developed a keen interest in the larger world. The school is quite academic and has high behavioral expectations. That being said, the teachers and leadership staff foster a climate of caring in the school, and every child is acknowleged individually and as an important member of the school community. I would recommend this school for parents that are seeking a structured learning environmen,t where their child's highest potential will be tapped. The skills developed at CM will readily translate into such life skills as problem solving, deep thinking, and independent effort. The school also celebrates diversity, and has a student body that represents a wide range of cultures and economic levels.

I have two children at Community Montessori in primary and lower elementary. Their progress has exceeded my expectations. I am very happy with the teachers, staff, and education they are receiving at CM. If you have a child that does not fit the traditional school model, CM would be a great place for them. At school, my children are allowed to develop and explore their interests and also develop deeper knowledge in areas that they choose. I am continually amazed by the works they are returning with in our weekly communication folders. I am also impressed with the primary staff making phone calls home to check in to see how my child was acclimating to being a new student. I have no concerns about their preparation for middle school, as most BVSD middle schools will be taking in students from a wide range of backgrounds from core knowledge schools to non-traditional. Their skills from CM will allow them to adapt with ease. I truly believe the Montessori curriculum allows my children to develop and learn in ways that is not stressful or academically overbearing. They have a strong love for learning and I know CM is to thank for that.

this is called "dumbing down education" These kids are not coming out prepared for any other kind of educational experience. This has nothing to do with Montessori curriculum- it has to do with the staff and overall expectations.

I love this school and so do my children! I have never seen a more dedicated, caring and open staff of teachers, para-educators, support staff and administrators. They truly believe each child is full of greatness! We are so lucky to be part of this wonderful school!

My son is an advanced 3 year old and this school gives him great exposure to many skills he normally wouldn't get until kindergarten. He is already writing letters, sounding out words and reading. As a result he is very engaged and happy at school. And the full half hour of playground time includes many extras such as tricycles and sledding. Several reviews mention this is not a 'true Montessori' but without any specifics. Everything I see and hear in the classroom is in accordance with Montessori's principles. Children are empowered to do things for themselves and are carefully shown how. Order in the classroom makes the children feel secure. Focus on the child s relationship with nature is emphasized. And the weekly written update from his Montessori-certified teacher provides the specific works my son engaged in. All these works are true Montessori. My son is positively thriving at Community Montessori.

This school is great especially I love his class teacher. My kid is 3, and in preschool level. I am so happy to see significant improvement in his concentration level after the learning process through montessori method in his class. I understand that concentration is very important in his later learning process. Besides, he learns more good discilpline from his school learning system: Behave himself well in many basic manners; offer himself to help in some simple housekeeping work; caring and sharing with his peers.

This school is just excellent. We are immigrant, my daughter was born in the US, but English was her second language. She started to the CMS at age 3. First she learned English fluently and her teacher says that her English now much advanced than native English speakers based on grammer, richness of vocabulary and etc. She learned read and wright when she was 4, even we did not teach at home anything. It will be long list to write down everything here, but she is so happy to be there, as a result we are happy too. She is florishing every single day and I can see it everyday. She is the only child and she learned to share, respect, frinedship, properly communicate and be polite to herself, her friends, her environment, school personal, and her teachers. I strongly recommend to everybody.

My son attended CM pre-k last year, and it was a very negative experience. CM is touted as the only literacy-based preschool in Boulder County, as opposed to play-based preschools . Does that mean there should be no play? No socialization, even, from 7:50a.m. 10:00a.m. when an incredibly reserved circle time begins? I assume it depends on the teacher, but we found it pretentious, and though they may discuss diversity alot, children must fit a mold. My son is a boy, not a mini-man. We pulled him out and he is flourishing at his current pre-k, and he finally feels safe at school.

Not a true Montessori environment. Our son attended for a full year half-day of preschool - we really tried to make it work because CM was so highly recommended. Everything was very strict. If you don't do things a certain way - it's wrong. I think if we could have switched to a different teacher, CM would have worked, but that was not allowed. We were so excited when we got in through BVSD open enrollment, but soon found that because we were low-income our family required more paperwork, goal-setting and conferences (which the teacher clearly didn't enjoy). There was not very much parent-teacher communication about what was going on in the classroom. Students were given about 10 mins for recess, right before coming home. Children deserve to have fun - the next year we chose Sunflower Preschool (private), cut household expenses (cable, phone) to pay tuition.

My daughter has been at Community Montessori for 4 years now. The school is incredible and she loves it. It is a full-fledged Montessori school (all teachers are fully Montessori certified) and the families have worked hard to raise the extra $25,000 per classroom to get Montessori materials on a public education budget. My daughter has thrived in this multi-age classrooms and self-directed work of Montessori. THe teachers are very innovative in motivating and personalizing work for our daughter. CM is a close knit school. Almost immediately, the teachers, principal and office staff knew our daughter and us by name. The school celebrates diversity and holds 25% of slots for low-income students. Unlike other open enrolled schools, this is a very diverse environment. But, it is very hard to get into unless you enroll as a 3 year old.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
