Crossway Community Montessori School 5

People are entitled to their opinion, so here is mine. My grandson had a wonderful experience at Crossway with all the current staff and administrators that are there now. A job relocation required a move out of state, but he is a five year old who reads at a 2nd grade level, and is a compassionate, curious, and interesting little boy. I credit this to his excellent introduction to Montessori education at Crossway and his parents commitment to being engaged in his education: learning about how Montessori education is different than traditional education; how to set up a Montessori home that gives children the ability to act independently where appropriate (child-sized dishes, shelves and drawers, brooms and dustpans, etc.) so the child can dress himself, set the table, help with clean-up); attending parents conferences and education programs; volunteering to help and attending school events; reading newsletters and flyers; supporting fund raising efforts; communicating with staff and teachers about any concerns ; asking for coaching about behavior issues; etc. Every family has challenges and has to work with any school to get the best benefit.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

Teachers are told by the administration, not to talk to other teachers or parents. They have way to much to hide. RUN AWAY!

Please read about them on facebook " the truth about crossway community" This school is really bad. Don't be fooled just because you are desperate. Think about your children

Again, this school does not even respect the teachers that take care of the kids, yet along the children. The also blame parents for everything.

Amount of homework: Just right

This is a two year preschool program plus kindergarten year. There is no homework, nor should there be for children that young.

The staff did an excellent job of helping the children learn to identify their feelings and to use their words to work out issues with other children.

Again, our daughter has a great experience. The incredible diversity of the school helped our daughter learn about many different cultures and life situations; all were equally valued.

My child had an excellent experience at this school. As parents, communicating with the administration was challenging and they often weren't very organized. So, as parents, I found navigating Crossway to be challenging, but it was a fantastic experience for our daughter.
