My child is having a great experience at Rainbow Montessori! I feel very comfortable knowing that she gets excited to come to school. Everyday, she comes home telling us all the things she's learned. She sings a lot of educational songs and she tends to remember random facts that have been previously taught. The teachers work very hard with her as evidenced by the worksheets or art projects in her bucket. She is learning a lot and I am very proud of my decision to send her here!

My daughter (4 yrs old) just started a month ago. She loves the preschool staff especially the head teacher Miss Theresa. My daughter comes home with an artwork and a few papers that she herself wrote like her name, numbers, letter-case matching, and simple words containing a different vowel sound each day. Just yesterday she was attempting to read me a book about fruit and was phonetically sounding each letter beacuse she was so excited to show me what she learns at school.

We are extremely happy with Rainbow's program and staff. Our daughter is currently in the Infant room and will soon transition into the Toddler room this Fall.

The children learn SO much. My 4 year old can do addition, subtraction and compose simple sentences. Socially, my child is above and beyond my expectations of other children his age. I am very proud that my child went here! I commend teachers at Rainbow that put in the love, attention and care to teach them the skills they need to excel in life.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
