Great school for toddlers and pre-K. However, need to pull kids out before K and put in public or other private school. The academic program is lacking and many kids need outside tutoring. Makes no sense to pay for a private education and then pay again for extra help.
This school is a paradox. They espouse that each child is a unique flower. They deem some children as weeds in their garden and slowly , systematically push the child and family straight out the door. The rip the bandaid approach would have been less devastating. It was tactical which made the situation more repulsive. Our other child was a bright star and we were oft reminded not to compare her skill set to others. I guess that works well when you're striving for mediocrity. We have to first learn now what was not taught in our quite fabulous public school. Irony at its most whimsical. We knewbsomethingnasbawry, and shouldbhavebpulled them post-toddlers. Unless your child is the mean in the bell curve, you may want to move on.
The Montessori School provides an excellent start for preschoolers-6th grade and nurtures the love of learning. Excellent music/theatre, art instruction and parent involvement is wanted and appreciated. Mary Zeman is a hands-on headmaster with an open door policy. The board is voted on by parents and supports the mission of the school.
