The Montessori Method works!!! I am a teacher here and look forward to coming to school each day. My granddaughter also is a student and I want the best education for her. Don't take my word for it, come and take a tour and see for yourself.
I have found this school, teachers and staff are wonderful. My child is in an environment where she feels safe and loved. I love the methods used in teaching. I wish they provided meals but the curriculum and staff are great. I have not had any fears for my childs safety and feel the school handles discipline fairly as far as I have seen. Great family feeling as far as I am concerned.
I have mixed reviews: From PreK - K this school is awesome. The children are exposed to so many different things to learn and your child can excel at their own ability. The teachers really love the children and they thrive. 1st-5th, I am not wild about the teachers (i'm not even sure they like children). The amount of home work is crazy! Homework on top of all the book reports, projects and reading counts. It's truly overwhelming! Many of the projects are clearly far to advanced for a 6 or 7 yr old. (obviously the parents are doing most the work, it's kind of a joke). My friends and family have children the same age going to Magnet Schools and "A" rated schools and they don't have near as much. Administration: One thing that really rubbed me the wrong way was when a child brought bullets to school (old enough to know better) and the administration did not even suspend the child. What message was that sending to the other children?? That there is no consequences for such behavior?!?! Heck, if you forget your homework you are denied recess but if you bring bullets "No problem!" So this school has wonderful qualities and some not so wonderful.
I regret choosing this school--was impressed with another Montessori that I observed in another county, and thought attending the Montessori in a town close to where I live would be wonderful--definitely NOT all alike--which I have found out the hard way. Disagree with a lot of their policies--not a parent-friendly school--unfortunately...Actively looking elsewhere--take a CLOSE look before considering this school!!!
Rip off..... They are very irresponsibe and disorganized. The teachers are good but the administration is awful,
I stayed at home with my son until he was almost 2. The teachers are wonderful and spend so much extra time with my son. There is not another school in town that I would trust with my son. He is now 26 months and know all his colors, shapes, can count in spanish and english, can say his ABC's, and knows at least 10 nursery rymes in Spanish and English. This place is amazing!
