My son began attending Pincushion Hill Montessori School in the summer program and transferred to the regular school year. Every day I see how excited he is to attend and be with the amazing faculty and staff. They have truly treated him as their own child and I can't ever see him attending any other school.
Our child learnt very little for the money charged. There is also confusion on who is in charge of the school and the principal can be rude to parents.
I have sent 2 children to Pincushion and both have thrived. The curriculum can be demanding and will keep pace with an inquisitive child. Love the diversity in the school and the disciplined environment. One of my children has graduated out of Pincushion and is now in public school and we are disappointed in the public school. Our child was far ahead of her classmates in public school, took the 4th grade MCAS upon entrance to public school and received Advanced ratings in all categories. Unfortunately the options for private school post-3rd grade are unaffordable.
Very dissappointed in the school. Not worth the extra cost when public school nearby was just as good. My shy child did not improve her.
Children that are self-starters and possess a high level of confidence and independence may well prosper in this environment. If your child is shy and a follower and not a leader then Pincushion will not be a good match. The 'screening interview' results will be that 'your child will grow into our environment'. Truth is not all kids do well in Montessori. If you have doubts pursue a traditional curriculumn overeen by the Department of Education. Ashland Public Schools are fine and meets the needs of ALL CHILDREN.
