A school clearly at a crossroads. New Head of School that is promising but here are entrenched long-time faculty who hold he school back. Financially in trouble, declining enrollment and a challenging culture make the school a risky bet. Also, I would be wary of the last 5 reviews done by a teacher all on the same date.
I want to thank the teachers for sustaining and supporting our schools mission statement in assuring children receive the best progressive education possible, which supports and nourishes individual strengths and Needs. They exemplify dedication in progressive education to the whole child.
There's time to reinforce at home what's been learned in school and our homework is intelligent and not worksheet driven. It allows time to learn and play an instrument, engage in art and sports outside of school. Homework does not sacrifice time for extracurricular activities.
Throughout our school, students support each other. Our Reading Buddies program has older students reading to younger students each and every week, all year long. Their relationship has depth and a commitment of respect and friendship
Outside the school day.
The Montclair cooperative school is a treasure of a school that educates children both inside and outside the classroom. Our commitment to a stellar constructive education along with a genuine commitment to social justice educates children to become students and citizens of the world.
this place is falling apart. they cant deal with people who have listning issues. i was there when a friend of mine got suspended for tipping over a chair. that should be enough info to say that there are problems there
