Crossway Community Montessori School
Develops honesty: Strongly agree

The children are taught independence but also how to work together to accomplish a goal. The classes follow the Montessori method of multiple ages in the same classroom, so the children are exposed to various levels of comprehension. It is a very diverse school which reflects the community in which we live.

The school has done wonders for both of my children. The teachers are wonderful and caring; the children are very respectful of each other and look out for each other. My oldest has since moved on to public school and is thriving, she is well adjusted and is able to work independently and in a group setting well. My youngest loves to go to school and enjoys all that it has to offer, from working in the garden, singing songs, playing, artwork, and learning life skills; she is happy. Can't say enough about how wonderful this place is.

A wonderful environment for babies and toddlers. All children are guided towards independence. My son absolutely loves it. He walks to school so happy and seem fur filled when I pick him up. Great community garden and playground. Highly recommended.

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.

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.
