Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

Please look into the lack of actual qualifications in the administration. Our interaction with them was petty and circumstantial ... and they took it out on our son!

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

They were! There's a reason all the good ones left last year!

STAY AWAY! Just be aware that what you read about MPA is from years gone by. The current administration is unqualified, uncertified, incompetent and downright DISHONEST! In fact, the principal took out a petty argument on a 4th grader. Keep your kids safe - I cannot urge you to stay away from MPA any stronger.

Stay Away! Whatever reason you're looking into this school is the work that Ms. Char did in years gone by. Not only are many of the teachers under qualified, the new administration is incompetent and down right dishonest. Protect your kiddos - this place is going down FAST!

Miserable experience at this school! There is such a fake atmosphere, and so much effort to advertise and brag about how special this school is, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Despite the name, this is not a true Montessori school, and I found out there are no requirements or regulations on who can use the Montessori name... so apparently ANYONE can call themselves a Montessori school... It is worth mentioning that the new principal is beyond incompetent, and I found out that she does not have a Colorado principal or administrator's license. I could not believe that she got hired, and then I found out she used to be on the governing board... Is the district looking into this charter school?

My daughter went through MPA K-6th and when she moved on to a more traditional school has made the honor role every trimester. She owes it all to the wonderful foundation and teachers at MPA. She learned more than just academics, she learned to be a self-directed leader who loves to learn. We will be forever grateful and proud to have been a part, of such a wonderful school.



- a
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.
