This school has the best caring and professional teachers, strong,friendly great leader as a principal who genuine welcome the parents to be involve and support his teachers creativity. Staff is unique, and the best of the school is the parent involvement. The best of the best!!
My son Started here in the fall of 2011 and we were considering Beachside and Little Flower at the time, we put it into prayer and when we won the lottery we were happy but still had some doubts as all parents do when embarking on a new venture. My wife became involved in the school, volunteering and getting to see the school and faculty in depth. He was naturally homesick at first and didn't want to go to school, it was very difficult the first two weeks, especially for my wife when she dropped him off. But in the next few months, he started growing mroe and more fond of the school and since then he loves his school, classmates and teacher, Mrs. Huckestein. I also became involved in the summer, volunteering for the swim program they had at the YMCA and also grew to appreciate the school and the wonderful staff and faculty behind it. The principal is a genuine fellow and he has a unique interest and passion for the school and it's students. I am so thankful to have my son enrolled in this new school and blessed to have him starting his second year there with the same terrific teacher. our prayers were answered and we are happy and look forward to and excellent future with BMV!!
Another great year is coming to a close. I can't imagine this school getting any better but it has. My daughter math score went from a D to a very strong C with a possibility for a B. Thank you Ms. Sherman for caring so much. Mr. B thank you for caring so much about my children's academic well being. Loved the robotics competitions. Ms. Levene my sons gifted teacher thank you for challenging my son. He is better partly because of you. I wish we could mass produce beachside and give every child this opportunity. All my fellow parents thank you for being as concerned about academics and curriculars as we are. Already looking forward to year 3! " up, up and away" Too the parents in the lottery. I wish you much luck for your child getting in. This school is a God send to south Florida school system. My children are flourishing academically,extracurriculars and emotionally. My other son will start kindergarten and is excited and already knows Mr. B and can't wait. Every school should be montessori. Go lions and keep up the GREAT WORK!!!
My daughter has been there for two years, since the school inaugural beginning. The first year is never perfect but the school made huge efforts to make things go smoothly. This year is running perfectly. The principal is very visible, helps with loading kids in cars in the morning and especially the after noon and is charismatic, approachable, warm and loved by the kids. My daughter's teacher is doing a great job and my daughter LOVES going to school (the best indicator of all I think). The parent involvement and unity is amazing. Nothing is ever perfect however this place is close. The school is not in the best neighborhood however our security is fantastic and there has never been an issue. We are very lucky to have gotten in.
Our eldest son had the great fortune of participating in the inaugural year which exceededed everyone's expectations. We were then even luckier to get our youngest son in through the lottery. Coming from a New England private school education, I was simply dreading the Florida public school system once that time came for my children. However, I have to say how vastly impressed I am with this beautiful school, campus, faculty and truly nurturing, passionate administration. The funny thing is, there's actually an up side to the aforementioned! The philosophy behind the Montessori Method builds independently driven learning which fosters a lifetime of such critical ability leading to an eventual recipe for self-motivated success! What a great place. The parents and children who are affiliated are SO friendly and are genuinely concerned about their children's educations, much like myself being exceedingly discerning. And yes, it's an "elem-middle" school and starts at preK 3! I know where my youngest will be for the next 10 years! Our family is elated and truly thrilled to be connected to our wonderful Beachside family. Lottery is in the beginning of December, so register ASAP!
I think this school is so great! i have only been here for 1 year :) (like everyone else) And happily going on my 2nd year, I'm proud to call B.M.V my school. And let's not forget teachers,staff, parents, students ;) and Principal Balchunas let's definetley NOT forget!!!!! I love this school & encourage parents/guardians to put their kids into this school! You won't regret!!!!! :)
This is an awesome school and was lucky enough to have gotten both my children accepted in this school. Having just completed the school year the principal and faculty go beyond excellent ! Broward County did an excellent job selecting this principal. He is energetic and you can see that he wants what's best for the School, it's Students and Faculty . He had alot to prove and did a great job ! Everyone have a great summer and we look forward to great things at Beachside Montessori Village for the 2011-2012 school year !
This school goes beyond "excellent." The principal is terrific. He interacts with children & parents alike. He seems to know each child personally and thoroughly. The highly educated teachers are effective, creative and caring. Parents are treated as members of a team that functions to help the children succeed. There is a very vital, large PTA who provides extracurricular activities beyond the slew of school clubs. There is a strong feeling of community and we fervently hope that they will find a seat for our second child.
