Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Providence is a parent owned school with a high level of parent participation in the running of the school. The Board of Directors is led by the Head of School and the President (a current parent) and a robust cross section of administration, staff and parents.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
One of the core Montessori cornerstones is respect and community. It is a part of the learning environment at Providence throughout each level.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers at Providence are certified Montessorians, many of them have decades of experience. You just need to talk with them in depth about the experiences to know the exceptional quality of experience they bring to the classroom.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is introduced progressively over the years at Providence as the children grow. It has never been overboard but introduces the children over time.



- a
Both my daughters have been at Providence since their primary years. In each 3 year cycle through middle school I have seen amazing blossoming of their talents in all areas - academic, social, physical, psychological. The Montessori environment at Providence has been an exceptional place for them to grow.


Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
They teach peaceful resolution in all things... they have a peace pole that the children use to discuss disagreements.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
All of my son's peers have gone on to college experiences and are doing better than their new peers. They are taught more life skills than just content for passing tests.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
the teachers are required to get Montessori certification, so they are dedicated to this philosophy ... it shows.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
They don't really have much homework ... it's a way of living, more than doing rote assignments in 2D. Everything is hands on and concepts are carried thru from 3 years to graduation year.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
There are several teachers trained in Orton-Gillingham and those techniques are infused across the curriculum for children with difficulty reading. For children who are academically gifted, there is the opportunity to push as far ahead as they are able to do so. The multi-age classrooms means that children are naturally at a variety of levels across the subject areas, they can help each other and children who are at either end of the spectrum do not stand out as different to their peers.
