Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Most teachers have predetermined bias, but there will be a few along the way that are neutral. (If your daughter is a friend to the popular girls who are family friends with all the teachers, your daughter will have no trouble with teachers. If not, be ready for questioning against your daughter and suspicion.)

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Bullying is immediately dismissed. Those who say bullying is not a problem are the girls who do bully. A lot of students come to Montrose to get away from bullying, but in turn become the bully gradually, without realizing it at first.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Many children are sent away after they have expressed a need for their learning differences that Montrose does not want to take the time to foster. It saddens me to see the girls lied to at first so their money is safe in the school, then told to leave because they are 'not good enough' and not to the school's standards.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Leadership is mocked and girls do not feel empowered to take leadership, for when they do so, they are immediately shut down. I have been instilled to lead by example, and I know for certain that the examples at Montrose are not ones you would wish your children to follow.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
This school develops weak character in girls to become lying, manipulative, two-faced, and hypocritical.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Girls are flooded with busywork. They are told if they are tired or need a break to not finish it, but when they do so, are scolded and embarrassed that they 'aren't smart enough'.



- a
I am frustrated at the lack of individual attention anyone receives. Unless your child has a legacy at the school or is popular with teachers and friends, they will be continuously dismissed and disregarded. Girls are sent here assuming a small school would provide a firm foundation in growth through the years, but are unfortunately disappointed. The young ladies at this institution will sadly not know how to cope in the real world. The bullies will be unpleasantly surprised that their tactics will not work. The girls told they are not capable enough will be unsure of themselves and insecure. The girls who are objectify men (this is because 'all girls' creates an idolization and fantasy when it comes to males) will be hurt after they throw themselves on the first boy they can find. Lastly, although one may think inappropriate 'weekend behavior' can be avoided by sending your child to Montrose, it is the exact opposite. Some students use Montrose to get away with doing illegal acts and misbehaving because nobody would suspect them of those things if they went to Montrose. Many girls throw away their lives to make up for lost time, in the end alone and lost because Montrose never offered a helping hand, but grabbed some popcorn and enjoyed the six years of entertainment for them and torture for the girls.

Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
The school brushes off the bullying perpetrated by legacy students. Additionally, any bullying causes severe emotional distress for the victim because of the small class size.


Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
The school has told families they cannot accommodate their children because they have a learning disability, causing many families to have children in different schools.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
The mission of the school is based on the assumption that all the students are good, Catholic school girls from good Catholic families . However, many students have an innocent face at school but party on the weekends.
