I observe private and public school classrooms as a part of my work life and have never seen an environment as wonderful as Counterpane Montessori. The physical space, the materials, and most importantly each and every staff member make it a place where children feel safe to explore and succeed. More importantly, in our current society's culture where failure is seen as weakness, Counterpane assures that your child will see failure because of the vast opportunities, so they know how to accept it, learn from it, and forge on, in spite of it. The academics are beyond what is taught it typcial schools. They are deeper and richer in experience and comprehension. The type of adults that are created are the ones you want as your friends, your co-workers, and your leaders for the future.

My daughter is 3 years old and the level of education is phenominal. She can sound out three letter words, count to 100, recognize her continents, as well as the 50 States of America. At the last teacher/parent conference, my daughter's teacher showed me some of the things they were working on that included visual algebra and geometry. Take a tour for yourself. It is phenominal!

In my four years of high school at Counterpane, I gathered that its greatest asset is the freedom of each student to learn self-discipline in an environment that not only fosters creativity and individuality but also one that sanctions a sense of pride and esteem in one's work. I was able to study events, people, and ideas that were of interest solely to me and encouraged on a daily basis to acquire the most value possible from each project. My teachers and I communicated and interacted daily about my progress - as each teacher at Counterpane does; it creates a teacher-student relationship based on student accountability and responsibility. Simply put, students learn from day one that they are the most valuable determiner of the value of their education. At Counterpane, they are provided with an opportunity to ascertain their own.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. 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.
