Montessori Teachers are a different breed. They believe in what they do, and usually are paid less for doing it because they care about our kids and their future. Its not all about the money.

Spend time with your family, go out side, get exercise. Children love your attention . Spend quality time with them. Parents, you are teachers to. It doesn't have to all come from school.

Montessori believes in self determination. Guiding children to become independent learners who believe in learning as more than just going to school and reciting verbatim but becoming an individual thinker who is a life long learner.

While Montessori Schools have typically been private and tuition based and only affordable to the upper and middle class, this is a wonderful opportunity for those who believe in the Montessori philosophy and principles of Education who could not otherwise afford. Make the world a better place. “An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live.” Maria Montessori

My concern regarding Stubbs is that students are not well prepared to move to the next grade level. When behavior is not under control, students that are trying to do the right thing are the ones that suffer. This school has the potential for great things, however, they need to get better control of supporting teachers and students in the process.

Please i beg you PLEASE PLEASE do not send your child to this school!! The First semester my kids were attending here my daughter got BUILLIED!!! The So called teacher never did anything about it!! it's was to the point where she was scared to attend school! I steped in of course and got assure that it's not going to happen again but it did!! The teachers are useless... always on the phone not giving the attention to the kids as they need it. My son still don't understand that Maths and is not reading like he suppose too! Some of the kids carry on like they are grown up! VERY SAD!!! Presently looking for a good elementary and middle school for them
