Thus far and its been 2 weeks, my daughters too fancy for the school and now it turns out that they (the teachers) wouldn't help her peel the skin of an orange, open her granola bar or help with her juice. She turned 4 just 2 weeks ago and we are pulling her out of this horrible place.

Great school! As a parent I really like how open the school/teachers are to me stopping by anytime or just hanging out. It makes me feel more comfortable. The teachers are very compentent and have great relationships with the kids. I will keep my daughter there as long as possible. She loves it too!

Amazing teachers, warm/loving environment and extraordinary montessori education. I have two girls and they both attend Garden City Montessori. My daughter Hannah(6) has been at Garden City for 3 years and is in kindergarden... I have seen her grow leaps and bounds every year and have been ever impressed with the school and the staff. My youngest daughter Sophia (3) attends the pre-school and absolutely loves 'her school'. I highly recommend this school to anyone that is looking for preschool-4th grade private montessori education. I promise you will not be disappointed!

What a wonderful school! Our daughter Elia attended Garden City Montessori in its first year. The atmosphere is warm and caring with impressive teachers. We found Elia looking forward to each day and even doing math homework in her room before bed. We've had to move from Missoula and now Elia is entering public school first grade in Wisconsin. While we wish we could stay with Montessori, we know she is very well prepared.

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 »

TIP: Don't forget to ask about documents required for enrollment, such as your child's birth certificate, proof of address, or a record of immunizations.
