Student/Teacher ratio: 19 to 1 + 1 assistant teacher for ages 3-6 years. Classroom clean & organized. Centers appropriately placed. Independence and peer interaction highly encouraged. At minimum, a 2-year commitment for your child to learn the Montessori method. Classroom environment very "sterile". Lacks academic and visual stimulation. No alphabets or numbers on the wall, even a lack of seasonal focus. I get the sense that the school Director is "limited" by her views and conforms to the Montessori tradition. If you want a traditional preschool with a focus on academics that will teach your child from the very beginning to write his first & last name; familiar with and recognize the sounds of the alphabet, recognize numbers 1-20 and count up to 100; recognize at least 20 sight words (current kindergarteners must recognize at least 130 sight words by January); familiar with colors, and shapes just to name a few. If you DO NOT want a preschool that focuses on academics, and would like to have this montessori school teach him "reality based" life skills like cleaning, organizing, gardening and collaborating with friends, then this is the place!

We could not have found a better school for our daughters. The brilliant staff at FMS provides a creative, calm, and engaging environment that has allowed each of our daughters to excel beyond expectation. Four weeks into the school year and our three year old can now read and she has a phenomenal grasp of mathematical and scientific concepts. Our other daughter began reading shortly after transferring in the middle of last year. She was at a traditional school before transferring, the difference this Montessori school has made in her life is unbelievable. She is completely self- directed, confident, and she LOVES her school. She is on the first grade level in math and science and she just turned 5!! Each primary classroom contains a courtyard filled with gardens where the students can water plants from the rain harvesting system, plant seeds, weed, or simply take their learning outside to grab a fresh breath of air. The large, open classrooms lack rows of desks and a large chalk board front and center as this school understands HOW children learn along with the importance of finding each child's passion.

Fayette Montessori has been an excellent choice for our family. We have two children attending the school. One child is in the primary and one in the lower Elementary. Both children are doing exceptionally well in academics. But the most wonderful part of the program is the independence and self direction my children have developed. I know when my children leave Fayette Montessori in the sixth grade they will be successful where ever they go!

I am very interested in this school. However, I was wondering why there are no ratings since 2007. If there are any alumni out there please post your comments. I have a two year old (27 months) and I want t make sure that I make the right decision. I guess I will rate it wth fives since I do not know much about the school. Please help

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.
