We came to MPA with our two daughters mid way through lower elementary and one midway through upper elementary. Having Beene the another Montessori school, MPA exceeded our expectations. The teachers are 100% focused on the students, the administration is friendly and personable. Two years ago our oldest moved up to a secular jr high and has excelled. MPA prepared her to be an independent, thoughtful student!!! Can't wait for our youngest to start kindergarten there next year!!!


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullying is addressed with compassion building. In a community as close as this, it doesn't go on unnoticed. Teachers address it immediately as a learning opportunity.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
The Montessori philosophy is all about meeting the needs of the individual student. Small group lessons are given on how to use materials, then the child follows up using the materials to learn the concept at his own rate. Students help students when they need help. Teaching a peer solidifies the helpers own learning. The child in need learns differently from a peer than an adult.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Leadership from the office to the classroom is supportive. In a multi-grade classroom such as ours, the oldest students are given roles as leaders. They learn to take initiative to extend their roles where they see needed. Community service is valued here. Sixth graders often help in lower elementary classrooms with science experiments.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Peace education is an intricate part of the Montessori philosophy. Teachers incorporate conflict resolution, team building, compassion into daily curriculum

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers work together to support each other. Each teacher is allowed to bring his/her own passions to the classroom: from cooking with children, putting on a class play, to gardening in our peace garden. Community is strong at MPA.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers keep homework simple: not too much, not too little. Strong focus on the family and community is emphasized.

I am a seasoned teacher who works at MPA. As a teacher I have insight into what is happening here. The staff is very dedicated. Every one is our office is supportive and genuinely cares about the children, parents, and staff. The specials teachers, library staff, special needs team, and classroom teachers work together with passion and enthusiasm to create an exciting place for our children to learn.



- a
This is our sixth year at MPA. My children are thriving! The three-year cycle at each level creates a respectful community where students feel safe and understand expectations. Any concerns I have had have been met with professionalism and a team-focused attitude to remedy the problem. MPA is not only one of the best charter schools in Jeffco, it is one of the best schools in the district, period.
