Skokie Montessori has provided my son a great foundation. He began in the 2-3 year old classroom, and was then transitioned to the 3-6 year old classroom. What could have been a difficult event for such a young child has turned out to be great! He is learning so many new things it is hard for him to share them all. Every day he comes home with a new idea, word or set of knowledge. The teachers are warm and caring, yet set good limits. In the classroom there is a great mix of different ages and a diverse student body. He has had a chance to make friends with all of the different children in his room and has had help from the teachers to begin the socialization process. I can't speak highly enough about his experience at Skokie Montessori.

Horrible customer service. Numerous calls and messages went unanswered. I have been trying to reach someone at the phone number for weeks, at different extentions and numbers. No one has returned my calls or anything. When I went in, the customer service was horrible and rude, I can't believe that this is an operating and managed business. I don't know if the other reviews were posted by employees or private owners but my experience was definately different. I hope the demeanor changes.

I love that the children here are treated as individuals. The staff is highly qualified, and each teacher takes time to create a warm environment of learning based on each child's needs. Classrooms are full of well-designed materials that reflect students' different learning styles. I've been a teacher for years, and now as a parent, I see things differently. As a teacher, I'm delighted to know that this school seeks to meet the needs of each student. As a parent, I feel totally at ease knowing my two children are thriving in such a wonderful place!

Never a day i have to drag my son to go to school since his first day. I believe in good solid foundation and Skokie MOntessori has provided my son way above my expectations. The teachers are exceptional. My son has developed so well and I've seen so much confidence in him not only in the academic aspect but most importantly in social life. They have a great summer program too that my son can't miss.

I have two children that attend Skokie Montessori. They are learning at their own pace and come home every day with new stories of what they have learned. The teachers are wonderful and the school is very low pressure. I do not worry about the intellectual or social health of my children because Skokie Montessori and the teachers provide such a warm, encouraging environment.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.


Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

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.
