I love Montessori Children's House because they work on helping children learn to be confident independent thinkers, take care of their environment (both inside and outside), and help guide their students to become good citizens of our world.

Amazing school. I've made the most amazing friends there, and I really learned how to be myself. The fantastic teachers there give students the chance to learn at their own pace, whether it be at a slower rate to get them up to bat or with the grade above them. After transferring into the public school system, I was at the top of my class with so much more than just academics learned. I still keep in contact with the people I met here and would never regret attending. I hope to one day send my children here.

MCH offers a creative, nurturing and environmentally minded education program for ages 3 thru 12. The staff is constantly striving to offer enrichment programs which further develop the concepts of the Montessori standards while preparing students for higher education. I am a very happy parent of an 8yr old second yr student.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
