This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
My son has been at Go Like The Wind for 3 years now (preschool and kindergarten) and we absolutely love it here. The teachers and staff are amazing, and the classroom is calm and focused and nurturing to all children.
My son loves going to school and is thriving both emotionally and academically. He loves helping the younger students just as much as he loves doing his kindergarten work and he has become so confident and independent. I am so grateful every day that we found Go Like The Wind and I know it was the right choice for my son.
Students are able to grow themselves without any negative outside distractions. My child has been a student for seven years and has built a strong sense of self, I do not worry about her going out into the larger community and being persuaded through peer pressure.
The children are taught at every level grace and courtesy, this means every child is respected by his and her own peers along with all staff members. They also are taught to sit down and speak to one another to work out their differences face to face. Bullying is something we don't see often if at al in our school.
I am greatful to all the dedicated staff at Go Like the Wind Montessori. They have fostered my children's creativity and wonder about the world around them. They intuitively focus on the child's strengths while working with them to build up their weaknesses. Any other school would have crushed my children's spirit and at Go Like the Wind, their spirit is strong and set free. It's not just a school, it's a community, a family.
My family's experience at Go Like The Wind Montessori has been tremendous. Our son was attending a local Ann Arbor charter school where the teachers were very nice and caring but the performance levels were suspect. We moved him to Go Like The Wind for 5th grade and he has remained through middle school with outstanding results. In 3 years at Go Like The Wind his test performance increased by 45 percentile in math and 50 percentile in reading. Go Like The Wind offers an authentic Montessori education individualized for each students skill level and has teacher student ratios of 1:8. In addition to improved academic performance, the school has helped our son develop his leadership and team player skills through giving him in-class responsibilities, holding him accountable and having multi-age class rooms. The head of school and teachers are amazing! They get to know each student as an individual, they genuinely care about the children and they are experienced/effective professionals.
