We are going into our 8th year at Nesbit Ferry Montessori. This past year, our daughter transitioned to a private school with an incredibly challenging curriculum. Not only did the staff and teachers at Nesbit Ferry Montessori prepare her thoroughly from an academic standpoint (straight A's this past year at the new school), but also helped her grow as an individual. Our son is in the elementary program at Nesbit Ferry, which we are truly pleased with. The teacher's approach to supporting the strengths of each child, as well as working on the areas in which the child may need more help individually speaks volumes for their caring and awareness of what helps create a solid foundation for a well-rounded, responsible young girl or boy. We have seen and experienced the results first-hand. Nesbit Ferry is everything a parent could ask for in a caring, well-rounded academic and nurturing environment. The director staff is top-notch. Their consistent, solid and caring approach in of the day-to-day operations of the school makes for a wonderful environment in which children can grow and parents can feel confident. This is one of those truly rare schools - you won't be disappointed!
We have two daughters attending this school. Both of their teachers are excellent. We have now enrolled our older daughter in their elementary program as we want her to continue to excel in her studies. She is finishing the primary program reading and writing and completing math problems. We love the community of parents and the directors. Ms. Robin and Ms. JoAnn know all the kids by name and we appreciate this sense of belonging.
Our first child has attended this school for three years. Apart from all daily activities; she is now good at reading & math. At 5 years of age these skills are amazing. Teachers do take care of each individual kid and find what they need in improvement.
Our first child attended Nesbit Ferry for 3 years before going into kindergarten, our second is now at the school, and our third will be when he is ready. The directors and teachers of this school are dedicated and passionate about what they do. The quality of the program is topnotch. This school has helped to develop our children into caring, wellrounded, global citizens and thought leaders. Parent involvement is as much as you can do. My husband and I both work so we are not involved on a weekly basis but participate in all of the formal parent/child activities together. The school really builds a community around itself and is highly regarded by other schools as a strong academic and cultural program. We love this school.
What I like: the staff is passionate about the school and children; the school has a very warm/inviting feeling and culture; there is a diverse student body; the school is well established; the administrators know every child, and not just by name, but also a bit about what makes each kid tick; they provide a school lunch which allows the kids to eat 'family style' and share/socialize etc. What I Wish Were Different: 1. I wish the morning work cycle were not shortened for circle and playground time. I like both circle time and playground time but wish they could come after a full 3 hour work cycle. 2. The school recently had some transition in the staff. I was disappointed that my child had to change to a new teacher/classmates/classroom in the midst of his primary years. This could happen anywhere, though.
