My daughter has a Monterssori back ground, so I was happy to find this school when we moved to the Melbourne area. My daughter's class had 2 teachers with 25 students in her class. Only one teacher was montessori certified. When my daughter was having difficulty with some of the students in her class ,I approached the principle for guidance. Rather than looking into the situation, she suggested I find another school. I never expected that response from a school principle. For that reason I can not recommend this school.

I was not very happy with my daughters prior school. I called discussed my concerns with Mrs. Leslie and Mrs. Tapp-Principal. They gave me an appt. asap and their full attention. Since my daughter is in the 1st grade the adjustment from going from a public school to a very small school was minimal. My daughter loves staying in one specific classroom and not moving around from classes to classes as she did for reading groups, music, art etc. The elective teachers visit her specific class. So far its been 3 weeks and I am so happy with my decision. My daughter now really likes to go to school and I feel will make so much progress academically since the Montessori style is so much Hands On. Thank you to Mrs. Tapp for accepting my daughter mid year, Suggestion to future visitors, focus more on the individual attention your child and your family receives, that in my opinion makes up for the "luxury and material setting" of a larger school. What is also great is that this school follows the Fl. Sunshine State guidelines, and regulations, Charter which means no cost and in my opinion the teaching is equivalent to the rated 9 public school my daughter was at prior.

The staff and teachers are very polite and mean well but in my opinion, this school is not a good fit if you have a child who is gifted or has any kind of special needs.

My daughter has attented this school and it's counter part for over 3 years. This year we have chosen to move to the larger school in attempts bring forth a different experience, now I am on my hands and knees begging to come back. This charter school is one of the best educational programs in town. My child is safe and is the staff's top prioity. In so many schools your child is one of 1000's But here at Educational Horizons I know she is one of 100's and I know she is getting one on one attention and is able to work with in a group of well behaved and attentive children. This school rates high on our list, with out a dought. The personal touch, the responsiveness, and the overall attention both child and parent recieves is well worth all the tea in China.

Montessori is great. I love it.

The Montessori approach appealed to me, but now I think it may be difficult for a child to transition into after a standard teaching style. My children came from a school with a traditional approach, and Montessori seems to give them too much freedom (to not do their work). Additionally, entertainment movies are shown weekly in the classrooms (Nightmare Before Christmas, Haunted Mansion to name a couple) while educational films are rarely shown. The current principle and teachers are not 'on the same page'. My kids love it there, but I'm less than impressed. We will be making a change next year.

I have to kids that goes to this school and we love it. This will be my son's 2nd year and he has improved a lot and seems to enjoy going to this school. This will be my daughters 1st year and she loves it to. The teachers gives 100% of their time and love to these children and I want to thank them for doing so. The staff is also wonderful we have a lot of parent involvement at this school and this is great. The principal, she is wonderful as far as I am concern she looks out for those kids at best. This school would not be for what it is if we did not have such a wonderful staff/parents and most of all awesome kids.
