My son has Autism and has been attending the Montessori School of North Miami for three years now. Not only are all his teachers professionally trained, but also the administration goes out of their way to address all his needs. I have never seen another Montessori school with an inclusion program like this; no one in Miami has anything even close to their program. Last year all the teachers received training from Michelle Lane, the founder of the blended method of Montessori and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for children with Autism. I was very impressed to say the least with the professionalism and dedication that Mrs. Lopez and her family run the school. Dr. Michael Alessandri the Director of UM-NSU CARD highly recommended this school to us. I hope who ever reads this message is not influenced by the ignorant comments stated below; my advice is to take a tour, meet the faculty and experience this amazing inclusion program! I very much recommend this school!

Will never ever recommend this school to anybody.Im very disappointed and angry with this school. After i went there on may 1st to pay the registration fee and signed all the paper work, and was told everything was ready for my son to start in august, all i had to do on august first was pay the $25 activity fee, like i did a yr ago with my other son, i received a phone call a month later asking me to pay another $250 dollars for materials. Witch they did not tell me when i was there before and they waited a month to tell me so i woudnt have another choice but to pay it . They said that it was something new that they r starting to do and that i had to pay it , even though it was their mistake for not telling me before. So instead of only paying $250 i had to pay $500. Incredible. For only 3 hours of class, so they r getting money from vpk for materials and getting money from you for materials, plus you have to buy a big list of materials to take to them, how much more money they want!!!!!!!!!! You can see they care more for the money than the kids. Thankfully i found another school for my son. Im happy about that and so is he. But will never recommend montessory of n m to anybody

Teachers in this school are not qualified and they do not even try to teach the special need children. This is an expensive daycare, where your child is safe and happy but barely receives any academic instruction. The school is run as a family business, plain case of nepotism. Complaints about the teachers are not addressed by the administration. Unable to exploit their potential, this school toys with your child s future.

If you have a special needs child and you love your child don't send them here. Go somewhere else with your McKay monies! Teacher's are not willing and able to teacher special needs children. They are their to collect a check.

My son began attending the Montessori School of North Miami last year (PK4). He is happy and learning every day. The teachers are good and loving. The only reason I am not giving a 5 is that the office hours are not parent friendly. I went to the office early in the morning and knocked the door but no one answered. I learned that they open later. I think the office hours should be convenient not only to the office personel but to the parents as well.

This is a wonderful school. My child is in Kindergarten and has been there since she was 2 in their toddler program. She has been reading since last year (PK4) and is at a first grade reading level. The education at this school is top priority and they really teach each child according to their level and ability. I love the warm, nurturing environment and the emphasis on reading and phonics. Top notch education and one of the best schools in the area!

My child is attending the Montessori School of North Miami for 2 years now and he is extremely ahead. This is an amazing school, all the education is personalized, the teachers are very well prepared. He is now in Kindergarten and he reads like a second grader.

I am very happy with the Montessori method. I like the teachers and because it's a small school you feel that your kid belongs to a Miniature Community. It's expensive but I do believe it's worth it.

This school is great for the child that has the ability to self teach. The school uses the Montessori method of teaching which in part says that you should first teach the child to learn.

Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
