Cambridge Montessori School
Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

The teachers at CMS are great - they know Montessori & they know my kids. They are willing to give more challenging work to my child who needs it & they are willing to go over things another child needs help with. Several of the CMS teachers train new Montessori teachers.

Amount of homework: Just right

Homework doesn't begin in earnest until the 3rd - 6th grade classroom. They receive a folder of homework each Wednesday, and are encouraged to stay after school to get a head start on it. The folder is due the following Tuesday. This allows the students to learn how to manage their time. In 7th & 8th grade, the homework is nightly, and students learn how to juggle many deadlines - both short & long term.

CMS students are encouraged to explore & answer questions that they find compelling. If they are unable to complete a work the first time, they are encouraged to try again, or to try a different strategy.

CMS fosters respect between students - whenever there is a disagreement, the teachers will get both sides of the story. The students are encouraged to share how they have been affected & to brainstorm how to resolve any conflict.

I have never worried about my younger children around older CMS students - even when they are running around in the playground. They are aware of their environment & will watch out for the little ones around them.

The school fosters leadership in the students - by the 3rd year in each multi-year classroom, students are mentors, and leaders of their younger peers.

Cambridge Montessori School has been a great fit for all 3 of my children. From the Primary program to the Middle School, the teachers have been great. The multi-year classrooms really allows the teachers to get to know each of my children very well.

The teachers here are some of the best in the country and recognized as such. it was one of the reasons we chose the school.

The homework level varies across the grades and at higher grades depends on some of the electives that the students take - so at some times i felt it was a little light and others a little heavy.

My children have been through all levels of the school from toddler to Middle School, and have been challenged, invigorated and excited by the program and the families there. The faculty has been amazing and even my children have recognized that even the tougher teachers had their best interests at heart.
