My son just started KG in the Montessori program. He is so excited about going to school every day. The teachers are amazing, so calm and somehow they give each child the attention they need. My son has a short attention span so I am grateful he does not have to sit and be bored in a chair all day. They have different stations to work at and the children move around to each station completeing their work at their own pace, but are accountable to get it all done. You have the benefits of a large school (special teachers- gifted and talented, speech, etc.) but small school classrooms which is works well. I would love for Montessori to be its own school with ability to have more students but that may not be possible. Being in a larger school has it challenges he has seen bullying from the main school side but I do know that Franklin has done a great job of trying to combat bullying, but it is very large school. The administration is friendly and accommodating. Being choice means that my son can attend even though we live all the way across town but you must apply for lottery. If you want this school apply- it is amazing to be chosen to go here! More schools need to adapt this method

Montessori classrooms can look chaotic when a new parent looks in but wtahc closely and you will see that each student is learning and accountable for their day under the supervision of a highly trained teacher. The materials are hands on and allow will use many different concepts when completing an assignment. This is a public Montessori school using the State mandated curiculumn but in an individualized manner. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to participate in their students education and this school has a very high participation rate. Extracurricular activities are vaiable and used by many families to enhance student achievemnet.
