The teachers/staff are very controlling and insinuate themselves into your life (what your kid ate for breakfast-how late did they stay up) Not my cup of tea.

Great Montessori. Our son is currently in Primary and quite happily thriving. Focused on providing a great Montessori experience and letting kids be kids. Good family involvement and school wide events.

My grandchildren attend Garden of Discovery Montessori and have been enrolled in the Toddler, Primary and Elementary programs. In addition to receiving an outstanding academic education, they also excel in social skills and are considerate and caring toward their peers and adults. Grace and courtesy are important in the development of young children and this school does a wonderful job in this regard. The children have also acquired a love of learning that will last a lifetime. This is a beautiful facility with competent, caring teachers who are all AMI trained. Thank you Garden of Discovery.

It is apparent that a lot of time and energy has been put into this school. While the educators themselves are a talented bunch the administrative staff and their politics can be tiring and cumbersome. I have often wondered if this may interfere with the learning objectives of the children.

I am a teacher at a public school and these folks do a great job in educating beyond the basic ABC's. They teach long lasting life skills.

I am amazed at how well my child is doing. I never thought he would be reading and writing in beautiful curisve handwriting by the age of 4.5!! The staff is friendly, warm, intelligent and professional. It is evident that there is deep passion for the Montessori method. I would reccomend this accredited AMI Montessori school to anyone who wants their child to love learning!!!

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.
