The staff and Director can be very short and inflexible when it comes to meeting the individual needs of the students.
Re the concerns: Montessori, by definition, is not necessarily a special needs school (although it can be), nor do we tout MSEO as being a school for special needs students. However, often a Montessori school can better serve the needs of some children with special needs if the child, for example, simply requires the ability to move throughout the day, needs more individualized attention, or simply needs some hands-on learning. Much of the confusion in learning can be minimized when a child has the chance to learn a concept with a material suited for that concept s purpose. As for the quality of the teachers, I invite anyone to come in at any time to evaluate themselves whether the sounds are being taught accurately or not. I am also sometimes disappointed that we are not able to get more parents involved; however, that doesn t diminish the fact that the teachers and the parents who do volunteer continue to give more than 100%. As for communication, please visit our web-site at any time to read our weekly Friday Notes, the curriculum, policies, guidelines, and activities. We are always looking to improve, though, and invite the whole MSEO community to share their ideas with us.
My daughters have attended Montessori schools for their whole life's. We love the Montessori method, for children development, the opportunities to grow academically and socially are amazing, the interaction between students of different grades in the same class help students to develop their own leader skills and communication. Montessori school of east Orlando not only has great certified teachers, it is a family school and they offer after school programs that my daughters enjoy a lot. The art and Spanish teachers are fantastic and we have seen the school to grow based on the needs of the new students and the old ones moving from grade to grade. I recommend this school without doubt for parents that would like to participate in the formation and develop of their children and also to participate actively in the school activities.
Montessori School of East Orlando-for more than 3 years my daughter has attended this school and has flourished during her time here. The teachers foster a strong environment of learning, caring, and one on one teaching. If your child is not growing in their current public or private setting I would strongly encourage you to stop by and meet the staff and some of the students.
This school claims to be able to support and teach children with special needs. They are lacking greatly in this area. None of the teachers have ESE training. There is a language problem in the lower grade classrooms and children learning to read are being taught wrong letter sounds due to poor English speaking teachers.
My child attended this school 2013-2014. I was disappointed with the way the school communicated. It seems the teacher's are not all on the same page. The parent's are required to volunteer and many don't! Wish I can rate better!
This is an excellent school! My son used to go to ladybird, and every morning it was a struggle to get him in the car to go. Now, with the individualized attention that he receives from his teachers an older students, he is learning to live learning! He is very excited to go to school every morning. They teach the kids all sort of life skills, and despite being only 3 years old, he surprises me every day with the new things he's learned.
