This is an absolutely wonderful school. I love the Montessori style of education and Baltimore is so privileged to have a public Montessori school that students can attend free of charge. The teachers and staff are amazing, the school is extremely well run, and it is a wonderful learning environment for children.

I can't figure out why the school does not offer a full-day program for the 3 year olds. Where is the extra cost? 3 year olds are part of the 3-5 year old classrooms. When they go home, no teachers or aides from those classrooms leave. They stay with the 4-5 year olds. So if there is no additional personnel cost, what is the issue? I understand the difficulty of finding an aftercare vendor for 3 year olds (staff ratio problems for that age), whether the kids are released at noon or 3pm, but with those children already in the building, they have the ability to create their own aftercare program. There are other inner city, public Montessori programs in other cities where the 3 year olds are included in the full-day program, and have an aftercare program. Only certain families can afford and arrange the logistics for the 3 year old program, and it shuts out working and middle class working parents especially. As the entry point to the school, the design of this excludes children of working parents from the school long-term, as those 3 year olds move into the 4 year old slots.

I wish I could abstain from the star rating as my child does not attend this school, but I am not able to do that. I do want to chime in regarding the 3-year-old half-day issue. My 3 year old was accepted to Baltimore Montessori via the lottery, but the fact that it is half day for the 3-year-old class WITHOUT ANY AFTERCARE made Montessori not possible for this working mom. And while it is true that there are no other public school options for 3-year-olds, a 2.5 hour day is harder logistically and more expensive for working parents (assuming you have to hire a part-time nanny) than most day-care facilities. I do wonder what is behind the half-day/no aftercare policy and what effect that policy has on the demographics of the families who accept places in the school.

I have to say in response to the 02/09 post that I have never seen open wires in the school and that I know for a fact that the leadership does send there children there since two of the kids are in my daughters class. Also, where else can you send your 3 year old ALL day? five days a week?? besides daycare. I would venture to say it may be BCPS policy that three year olds can not attend an all day 5 day a week program but I do not know for sure. I don't think it exists which is one of the reasons this school is so popular because it is a free pre-k program.Regardless, its too long of a day for a 3 year old anyway past 11:30. I feel genuinely welcomed.

I once felt the way the person who posted on 2/9 did. Most of what s/he says is true. (leadership does send their kids here and I never saw 'open wires') To bring a free Montessori school into a depressed neighborhood is tough and I don't see a way around the problems mentioned. People who love Montessori are going to flock to the public version of it, and that's going to create a cultural disconnect between 'hipsters' and others. I'm not sure how hard the school is working to fix that. It also is a pretty tough thing to fix. But my daughter loves it, the interactions between all involved are loving and real, the kids seemed challenged in ways I haven't seen ever in public school. I always have a nice feeling in the school despite my desire to be a hater. Montessori education is about the whole child, and that's evident here from top to bottom. I think it may be difficult for kids to come in after several years of regular public education because the focus is on self-motivation, not the system of rewards they are used to. But what more valuable thing could you learn than to be self motivated? When I consider the public school choices, this is the best one by far that we have.

What could be a great school suffers from ineffective leadership, inconsistent teaching, and a social divide between the upper middle class white hipsters and low-income black parents at this school. The school leader is cold and doesn't have control. The half day 3 year old program, the entry point to the school, in effect discriminates against working parents, as those 3 year olds must pick up their children at 11:30am. I believe this is an intentional admissions policy meant to attract a certain demographic to the school. School leadership seems wary of parents. The motions of welcoming parents are performed, but the feeling of being truly welcomed in the school is missing. I think it speaks volume that school leadership does not send their children to the school. The elementary school lacks air conditioning, and the school is filled with open wires. The school does have some positive points: a nice outdoor space with gardens and play areas. The kids have recess. The 2nd graders have the opportunity to cook. The school embraces art. I think with different leadership and a culture that blends the demographic divides of the school, the school could really shine.

The teachers, some of whom are fantastic others just okay, are doing the best they can with absolutely no support from the administration or board. The leadership is erratic, decision-making is sporadic and the sunshine attitude is generally unhelpful. The school is all vision with no means to fully implement the fantastic curriculum the teachers plan. So it ends up being, in so many ways, a dishonest experience for the children. That said, my child is happy and learning from a wonderful teacher. But the school is not what it should be.

This is based on 7 months experience with the school/staff through attending open houses, tours, doing the lottery application process, doing a shadow day, being accepted to the school and entering the first month. The entire staff have been courteous at every encounter, gotten back with us promptly, given clear and useful responses throughout our application process up to and including getting our 5th grader settled into a new school. A culture of true hospitality in the genuine sense of the meaning is evident at every level of interaction and engagement! We value how the teacher is thoughtful, sharp and committed.

This school has its pros and cons just like every other school; however, if you want heart, mind and the social integrity of your child to be in tact this is the school for your child. If you are only interested in your child meeting the test score requirements and focused only of the academic accomplishments send them to any other decent city school... This school is uniquely for families that want their children to think outside the box and create a better more socially, emotionally humane community for our future.

This school is hit-or-miss depending on the classroom. Our class was so bad that we had to pull our child out. Other parents we know seem to love the school. However, every year should not have to feel like a crapshoot. While granted, this is a Montessori model, due to the high student-teacher ratio and the eclectic mix of kids (ie, some are a bit spastic), the classrooms could definitely benefit from more STRUCTURE. A completely laissez faire environment is dangerous for kids, counterproductive for learning, and doesn't help the children feel grounded emotionally.

My family currently has one child in lower elementary at BMPCS and she has been at this school since 4 yrs old. We are consistently impressed with the teachers and staff involved in her lessons and amazed sometimes with the level of math and reading she's doing at that age. We like also that the Board is mainly comprised of former teachers and also includes others with finance, legal and real estate backgrounds.

Charter schools generally, and this one in particular, are about property, not education. It's a shame, because it could have been a great school. But the founders and many members of the board are real estate developers or related to developers, not educators. They leave critical educational needs to volunteers or completely unfunded and undone, but seem always to have enough money to chase the next property purchase. Don't send your children here. Stay in the district schools, even if dull and uninspired.

I have been involved with this school for the past several years and find that this is a welcoming, nurturing community of people that are working pretty hard to educate and inspire our children. It is too easy to make blanket statements of why you think it is a success or not. But I find the real worth of this school in the small things-for instance, in the happy smiles of children walking to / or being dropped off at the start of their day where they are greeted by many staff who know their names, or in the wonderful smells from the kitchen where students work together to prepare a healthy school snack. Those are just a few examples of what makes this school unique and wonderful.

Baltimore Montessori Public school has many issues that it needs to work out. While there seem to be some good teachers at the school, the leadership does not understand the needs of the community. The school also doesn't run well. When visiting the school, it is chaotic and the principal doesn't seem to know how to handle the issues. Each year many of the good teachers leave, and it is a bad sign that the school cannot keep good teachers. The leadership has many nice words to say, but they are not truthful. As a member of the community, I find this dishonesty to be the most problematic, and want to warn parents that they need to have both eyes and ears open when visiting the school.

I currently have 3 children at Baltimore Montessori. They are in both lower and upper elementary. We are very happy with the school overall. I feel that both the teachers and administartion truly care about the well being of every child. The school strives to teach not just academics but social and physical well being as well. The whole child. I think it meets this goal. The children are not taught to the test - if this is what you want, and you are not willing to teach to the test a little at home - than this may not be the school for you. We love this school because our children are not only getting a fantastic base for all the traditional subject areas, they are also getting truly amazing lessons in art, music, community and being inspired to make a good contribution to society.

A 3 star school that could b/c a 5 star school. B/c of the intelligence & dedication of the school leadership & the talents of many staff, there is a good chance it will. My 2 daughters b/g attending 3 years ago. Much good will & effort has been hampered by the realities of starting a new public school, of absorbing children w/ a wide range of social & learning delays whose parents sought this school out in droves because of its progressive approach, &, I think, b/c of some dogmatism about Montessori practices devised for a world no longer in existence. The Upper El. curriculum should be updated to provide kids w/ the kind of intellectual anchors & frameworks that were not needed before the web-age. More direction needs to be given today than was 100 years ago so that students may construct a framework of core knowledge, concepts & skills enabling them to understand their complex, fast-changing world. The plethora, subjectivity & superficiality of information today make it crucial that thoughtfully sequenced & linked knowledge be offered. Use of the best textbooks would assist this & would reify the value of books in the Google Age. Self-directed learning w/in parameters.

I am very happy with this school. It is very well organized and they strive to make sure each child's needs are met. As a parent of one returning child in the Children's House and a new student going to the 3rd, I feel that Baltimore Montessori Charter is a Community Building School that wants to teach the children what they need to be successful workers, enthusiastic life long learners, problem solvers, and young people who have a desire to give back to their community and build a better future. Not a limited future ; but a future that is uniquely their own. I believe this school can and will allow room for pioneers and visionaries to grow and give something inovative solutions to problems of today and tomorrrow.

It amazes me that this school is allowed to expand to include middle school-aged children. A previous responder talked about the changing demographics, but he stopped short of saying that more Black children are enrolling and that throws a wrench in the plans of the founders who wanted to cater to well-to-do white children from the surrounding affluent neighborhoods. The staff has not demonstrated cultural competence and instead of meeting the needs of the Black children, the staff labels these children as problems, angry, disobedient and frustrated. The demographics of the school on the City School s website says it all. How is it that a public school in a poor Black neighborhood end up with a majority white affluent population? Most of the White families are pulling their children out in droves because the school is not living up to the Montessori philosophy. The slots are filled by poor Black children and even more Whites pull their children out. Pattern? When you look at the MSA scores, only the Black students are failing especially the Black males that get labeled. What is wrong with that picture? At this rate, the school only has a few more years of existence.

I don't feel these posting are inaccurate. The test scores speak for themselves, the children are not learning and/or thriving as they should. I found some staff to be racist, students were being bullied with staff present and the ratio of children being transferred out of this school is as high as staff turnover. Do the math!!! This school is well known by North Avenue, because of the numerous complaints!!! If you dont' care about your child's education this is a GREAT school. If you do, don't even bother stopping - a true waste of time!!

The mission is great. The initial plan was terrific. However, it is changing as the demographics are changing. The school is great for the younger ages, however once kids reach an age where they need to know certain work techniques it is not happening. There is the love of learning but also the actual process that needs to happen. There are a lot of new teachers (which is good & bad). New teachers have to learn how to be receptive to parents. A better city school but not a huge gem in the rough.

There are some wonderful things about BMPC, but also very serious flaws that threaten to undermine its mission. They are currently failing to meet the needs of a great many students. Certainly the faculty are dedicated and work hard. But many faculty are inexperienced, with an irrational devotion to principles that are not working in the classroom. Frankly, some faculty believe in their approach to the point of arrogance, dismissing parents' concerns, even blaming us for the problems. Some children do well, especially in the younger grades. Some kids really enjoy the school, and so their parents are thrilled. But, there is a serious failure to teach skills and work habits. They neglect anything that requires repeated, consistent practice. Parents have no way to meaningfully track their kids' progress other than the MSA! Reports provide only a subjective impression of whether the child can work independently in an area. But teachers do not know if students are LEARNING, or even if they are finishing any work. My kids are HAPPY there, but the school is a failure so far. The open classroom and individual work plan is so promising, but their implementation shockingly naive. So sad.

Honestly, there is so much inaccurate information in some of these reviews, that I'm surprised they haven't been pulled. This is a completely unmoderated site and a great example of why the internet can be both a boon and a bust. It is so obvious that these slanderous reviews are from the same person!! If you are honestly interested in this school, do yourself a favor and attend one of the information sessions/open houses held in January/February. If your child is fortunate enough to be offered a space in this school, come back and meet with the director, then have your child shadow for a day and meet the teachers. See this school in action firsthand and decide for yourself if it's the right fit for your family.

My child was picked on, not just once but to be exact-6 times by the same girl since the beginning of March 2011. She told the administrators about it, they stated that they are taking it seriously and will make sure that her parents will be informed about it. But then, she started picking on my daughter again. The person who was in charge during that time was informed. But she stated that since she did not see that the girl hit my daughter in her left leg, my daughter has to go to peer mediation. I was flabbergasted. Disciplining a student at this school passes through a student and not through an adult. Correct me, if I am wrong, then when does an adult intervene? This is a school setting and these are children. Children need guidance and since they have very limited experience in life, I feel that an adult should have talked to both students to find out the truth. This school is truly a waste of tax payers money. the school calls their teachers guide, but they sure don't guide their children. They let their children get away with anything. The good children are leaving and they are left with chaotic children who badly need guidance.

Ms.Debika is the one true asset to this school and the only reason I am giving this school any star at all is for her. She has greatly improved my childs education. As for the rest of the school, it is horrifying to see public school education and realize that it keeps getting worse and worse. Thank goodness for Ms.Debika with her 37 years of experience! This school is lucky they have her, because 95% of the staff they currently employ have zero or very little experience. The principal is incompetent and she is the worst pricipal I have ever seen in my entire life. She has no experience and she only ran a daycare center before this school opened up. The only reason she got the job was because she founded the school and that was the worst choice Dr.Alozos ever made. She lets bullying and and other things happen right under her nose without lifting a finger. I am appaled any one in their right minds could possibly give this school a 5 star review. Imagine 6th graders doing 2 digit multipulcation and not knowing how to spell "press." Absolutely HORRIBLE!!!

I totally agree with the submission made the teacher below. Too much nonsense happens at this school. Be prepared tp teach your child combat techniques as a means of survival and to teach your child at home because the school's learning environment is completely disruptive. The school's leadership does absolutely nothing to enforce discipline or correct unruly, disruptive, direspectful or abusive behavior. If you are looking for a school that values the arts but nothing else, not education, not discpline, not respect or common decency then this is your school. The school's high turn over rate of quality educators and quality students is indicative of same. The clustered copious rosy pcture comments are obviously not self directed because the dates are very close together.interestingly enough all of the negative comments that previously existed are no longer present. In true Montessori schools none of the above would be tolerated. -Soon to be former parent

I don't have a child in this school but a very dear friend of mine has several. I myself find the children to be quiet, well mannered & very respectful of each other, their instructors & visitors. I absolutely love the art teacher & think that she's the greatest asset the school has. This is because she's fun, energetic, loves her vocation, loves children & loves to use her imagination! I wish that I could take her class! I think that the majority of the staff are awesome & that they really get a kick out of their jobs. I only ran across one instructor (Ms. Debeker) who really grinded my gears because she was not only very rude to my friend but to my friend's son as well. The Principal seems to be a really kind lady who tries very hard to bring the very best to her school. I wish that my own son could attend this school but he's too old. Education begins at home and ANYONE who thinks that it's solely the job of any school to teach your child(ren) are sadly mistaken & income bracket doesn't determine a parent's dedication to their childs learning! To me This school utilizes things to interest the mind, body and soul of it's pupils!

I want to relay a recent example that illustrates the dedication the principal of Baltimore Montessori PCS has for the children attending the school: on Saturday, Ms. Allison attended the city-wide public schools chess tournament that some of the students participated in and on Sunday she attended the Bridges (string program) concert that some other Montessori students participated in (along with students from several other city public schools). It should be noted that her own three children do not participate in these programs but she took time out of her weekend to attend these programs. I watched as children ran up to her excited to see her and proud to share with her what they've accomplished on their string instrument. We need more leaders in education like Ms. Allison for city schools!

If the parents of the students knew half of what goes on in those classrooms there wouldn't be a school anymore. This is not opinion it is fact. There is no discipline in this school. I personally believe deeply in Montessori principals but one has to be a realist when considering that this is an inner city school and discipline is necessary. In general, the school survives because of the demographic. The wealthy children from Roland Park have parents who won t let them fail and can tolerate the lack of basic education because they force their children to do homework at night. The impoverished children from the immediate area have negligent parents who aren t really paying attention. Please be careful with allowing your children to go to school here. I'm disappointed that my tax dollars are funding this experiment.

I second Dr. Alonzo's call for opening more schools like this in Baltimore City. It's no surprise that he would say this about Baltimore Montessori Public Charter. The city and all of the parents I know at the school love what is happening there. I have one son at this school and he has really taken to the challenging curriculum and the engaging surroundings. The principle, Allison Schecter, works tirelessly at knowing every child and their families. The involvement of the parents, teachers, staff AND the local community, make this school a gem. Intensive academic instruction is exceptional and teaches kids to really understand the depth of each track. (Not simply staring into a textbook and reading back the words) I'm also very impressed with the exposure that the kids have to everything from planting organic vegetables, doing yoga, learning to cook healthy meals, and the list goes on. I'm incredibly grateful to everyone at the school and the leadership that Allison shows on a daily basis. Locking down plans for the new middle school is yet another example of her dedication and creativity in a part of the city that needs it. If you can, get your kids into this school!

I find Ms debeka to be truly outstanding and wonderful. A true asset to this otherwise dreary and poorly run institution, I suggest that they, the administration,ask Ms Debeka to give lessons from her vast wealth of 37 years of teaching in the Montessori school system how to run this school better. It could only be a big improvement. I would rate this school as excellent if all the students were lucky enough to have Ms Debeka as their teacher.

My child is in his third year (also the school's third year open) at BMPCS. He's in a classroom with a new teacher, but she already knows him and can challenge him in a direct and personal way I can't imagine possible elsewhere. This school just attracts great people -- great teachers, great families, great students! I'm also thrilled with the extras that happen -- Bridges, sciences, yoga, bake sales, chess. No matter what he's involved with or not, we love having him here. It's relieving to know his development is progressing positively across all aspects, not just academically, but socially and relationally. The academics are wonderful alone, but with everything else it's just what he/we need.

A unique charter school in the city. Visionary, committed, leadership. An excellent board and very engaged parents. Making the principles of Montessori-style education work within the Baltimore City public school system is an extremely difficult proposition.

Expanding BMPCS to middle school shows great determination and resourcefulness.

Working in public education for 15 years, my husband and I have worked with a variety of teachers, administrators, and schools - we have been accountable for growth in test scores on a variety of levels. We chose to send our 3 children to this school because of the visionary leadership that values the whole child, and the dedication of staff to make the vision a reality in everything they do. One of our children has special needs and is fully included in the classroom with appropriate supports and is flourishing. All of our children are engaged and are encouraged to take ownership of their learning by making guided choices. The curriculum is rigorous and naturally engaging. We have seen the learning in action! There is always room for growth, and this school seems to keep growing in different ways to meet the needs of the children they are committed to.

We have one child who is attending Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School and one child who will begin in the Fall. Every great school starts with great leadership. The Director is an amazing leader who has ensured that the school stays focused on its mission to provide an authentic Montessori experience. We have been very impressed with the quality of the teachers and their commitment to understanding and supporting each individual child. The level of work and development of our child over the past two years has been incredible. The school is very committed to ensuring the development of the whole child - intellectual, social, emotional, and to develop and honor each child's individual strengths.

We have been thoroughly impressed with our son's teacher and the overall experience at BMPCS. He will be returning for his second year and is very excited about it. Throughout the school year last year, his teacher communicated consistently and clearly with us about his academic progress and social behavior. Whenever there was a concern, on her part or ours, it was addressed immediately by her. In regards to the school as a whole, you can see things are going well just by looking at the children; they are, for the most part, smiling and on task. We found the administration to be very friendly and helpful. Something that exemplifies the high quality of the school is the morning drop off; the Director is out in front of the school everyday greeting all of the children personally. It is a great way to start the day.

I have two children at Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School and I could not be happier with the education they are receiving - the rigor of the curriculum and the quality of instruction and the overall spirit and values of the school. My kids love coming to school and we feel so lucky to be part of the school community. I am also incredibly impressed with the capacity and dedication of the leadership, teachers and staff - constantly rethinking and refining the program to address the needs and potential of every child. I have also grown to appreciate the montessori approach. We actually chose the school, not for montessori, but because we were so inspired by the Director and confident in the capacity of the Board to help implement the vision. I love how and what my kids are learning!

Our son has been a student at Baltimore Montessori for the past two years, and we are unbelievably happy with his time there. The administration bends over backwards to try to meet the needs of the varied student population, and has been quite successful in our opinion. The structure of the classroom allows for many different learning levels and styles, and this has been a real bonus for our son. He spends his days in a caring and challenging learning environment where he is always asked to be his best. The dedication of staff; both teaching and administrative is incredible. The school has had its growing pains over the past two years, but each step has provided a stronger foundation for the next steps. We are grateful that there is such a wonderful option as part of the Baltimore public school system.

I have two children enrolled in this school and I am extremely pleased with our family's experiences. The director is an outstanding leader who is truly dedicated to the school and its mission and cares deeply about every child and family. The teachers are so responsive to the children, and I see a level of professionalism and dedication to the classrooms that is all too rare these days. I am also very impressed with caliber of work my children are doing... speaking as a former private school teacher, I can attest that Baltimore Montessori is really preparing these kids to be successful in high school and beyond. What impresses me most about this school, however, is the staff's sincere commitment to the school's mission, vision, and goals. Those aren't just words on a plaque for this team; they are the principles that guide and inform everything the administrators and teachers do.

Our daughter will be starting her third year at this school. She has shown so much growth, both socially and academically in the past two years. The school provides an authentic Montessori environment, which is peaceful and challenging. The leadership has a great vision and the rare ability to implement that vision. The school fills a dire need for quality public education in Baltimore, as the waiting list of hundreds of children attests. My husband and I refuse to compromise where our daughter's school is concerned. This school has allowed us remain in the city we love and watch her thrive among a diverse group of peers and outstanding teachers.

I am surprised by some of the negative reviews below. My son just finished his second year at BMPCS, which itself is only 2 years old. There has been a steep learning curve, but the dedication and caring of leadership and staff are extraordinary. Many teachers are relatively new, but they are bright, hard-working and, w/support, growing. The leadership thinks carefully and innovatively about working with children with extra academic, social and emotional needs while trying to create calm structured Montessori classrooms of 24 children who often have no Montessori experience and/or have not succeeded in traditional schools. There are bumps in the road, particularly in the area of parent communication, and apparently bruised feelings along the way, but my son is learning something much more important than what you'll find in the curricular objectives: he's learning why and how to learn.

I am grateful for the opportunity to send my two children to begin their 3rd year here. While they have had amazing private education on 3 continents, without this public option, I'm sure our family would give up on living in the city alltogther. I'm impressed with the teachers ability to energize and assess my kids so deeply and accurately. The Founding Director is a benevolent listener who believes all children are different and all concerns from all community members can be addressed in her smaller school setting (270 kids). If your looking for a school where you drop your kids off and forget about their education, if you're into rewards and test scores, this is not the school for you. If you want your children to be educated through hands on learning with a community spirit, and be involved in making that community thrive you will love this school.

I thought we were the only ones having problems with this school. I took my daughter out because they kept labeling her as 'angry' and 'frustrated'. There was a double standard. If you were part of the 'founding family and friends' group, you will do fine, but those who were not, had problems and they made us feel like they did not want to be bothered with our daughter. This school is not recommended at all.
