My son attended Mont Vail while he was in kindergarten. He is now beginning 3rd grade. I really liked the school, as did he. He also had a loving teacher who challenged him, but for the money, he did not complete kindergarten with the reading skills that a beginning 1st grader should have. I had to enroll him in reading skills at Rutgers thru the summer. If you put your child in this school or any school in an urban area, then is very important that you make sure they are learning adequate reading/phonics skills.

My son attends kindergarten at Mont Vail. I would recommend this school to everyone! Yes, the staff treats the parents and the children like family. There are no complaints. Their hours cater to the working parent. My son loves the school and the kindergarten/1st grade teacher is top notch!

Mont Vail is a very loving child center, I have no complaints nothing but praise to this Day Care. I'm a foster mom who only give top care to my children and would only leave my kids with the best. This day care has shown me nothing but quality care and patience. I must give them nothing but a outstanding rating, keep up the good work.

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.
