Key West Montessori School is a wonderful school and I am very proud our daughter is attending this school. In just a couple of months my wife and I have seen significant progress in our daughters learning, in all subjects. The waiting list to get in to the school, is a reflection of the excellent reputation that the Key West Montessori School has. It is a warm friendly supportive learning environment and the teachers and staff are the best!

Our Montessori Charter School here in Key West is wonderful! Every school has its share of challenges, and the parents and administration are constantly working together to make sure that all lines of communication stay open. Most importantly, our 4th grade son loves it! He is hoping he can continue with Montessori through high school.

Great overall school which truly focuses on the child as a pertinent part of society. Children educated in a Montessori environment care more for others and the environment. This school does a good job at promoting this particular aspect of child development. It's a small school which enable children and parents to know everyone and as such it is a nurturing community in its own right. Very dedicated and caring staff contribute to my positive rating of this school. The actual grounds are currently in transition: a new building has just been acquired and an old one will be leveled soon, so it is a work in progress which should improve over the next couple of years. The school is located in the center of the island which makes it easily accessible from different neighborhoods. As a parent, I am grateful that my little boy is part of this healthy,nurturing school dedicated to turning him into a caring individual.

This is our first experience with a Montessori school. I had heard so many great things about this school and am so happy we were able to get a spot for our daughter. There is a lottery system for students to enroll. It has been great for her to explore so many different things. It has also given her the opportunity to make choices for herself while becoming more independent and building self confidence. She comes home happy every day and looks forward to going back the next day. The communication from her teacher has been very good and the weekly newsletter from the principal is informative. All of the staff has been approachable and helpful. Overall an excellent introduction to this educational style. .

My school is great, not only for my son who is a student, but for teachers as well! We offer a Montessori program for free to students in Monroe County. Our program is unique and our students develop a love for learning while becoming independent and responsible!

My son just started attending this school for his first year (first grade). We like that the children have more independence than a traditional classroom and are encouraged to learn naturally out of their curiosity rather than simply having information thrown at them with the hope that some of it sticks. The method used helps the children become well versed in subjects, not just merely acquainted.

The playground is very small and very poorly equipped, compared to other schools in the area.
