The recent lawsuit explains so much about this school. Reading about the Illegal government, closed door meetings... Such a shame. Used to have kids at this school, and glad we are gone. It has gone down hill fast!

We have been to 5 Jeffco schools and MPA is by far the BEST experience. Kids learn at their own pace. We left a GT program were kids were only allowed to advance so far. The teachers, administration and parent-led board do a tremendous job. There are so many quality enrichment opportunities and the student/teacher ratio is 15:1. Where else do you find that? Lunch and recess are a full 30 minutes, not the rushed experience our kids had other places. My kids feel loved and appreciated, every day. I've never seen them so happy and so engaged at school. --NOTE--It seems there are negative reviews posted after every positive one. Someone is clearly holding a grudge. Visit the school and talk with parents. You'll see how MPA shines.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Kids have little or no homework in the lower grades, as numerous studies have indicated is best. Kids are of course encouraged to read.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
We left another Jeffco school because of bullying. We have seen firsthand how MPA addresses these situations when they arise. My kids finally feel safe from harassment at school.

Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
With the retirement of the long term principal, the administration is in over their head.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
The teachers used to be top notch. A recent retirement and transfer wave has left MPA with a void of top notch educators.

Make sure you read recent comments. The long term principal left last year. Her replacement is vastly under qualified and in over her head. After 7 years, we pulled out our student mid year. The quality of teachers has dropped significantly. It's a shame - MPA used to be a great school!



- a
This is the most wonderful school! Children are treated with respect and as individuals. The Montessori curriculum is challenging and students learn independence and responsibility. The principal is warm and supportive and cares for the children and families at the school. Teacher turnover is very low and this is a great place for children!




- a
Every time I walk through the halls, I see smiling, excited, engaged children and teachers who obviously love their jobs! These teachers are committed to Montessori education and truly work with every child individually to help them reach their fullest potential. I am particularly impressed with the STEM activities for the older grades. Montessori takes science and math to a whole new level!



- a
Such a bad feeling at this school. Poor instruction, leadership, and the lack of authentic Montessori has caused us to rethink and are leaving at the end of this year as well.
