Students receive a well rounded education that focuses on more than the basic subjects. The music program is the best in the city. The small campus is great for fostering community. All and all a great charter school.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

There are many great teachers and families doing their best to promote fairness, integrity and honesty.

The Principal is dismissive to parents. It's her way or the highway. The school programs are excellent.

Beware. Most of the staff is related. Principal is confrontational and nepotistic. Children are allowed to walk around unassisted on campus. Would not recommend as an employee or a parent.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

Principal is confrontational. Interactions very ugly and unprofessional, so sad for what could have been a wonderful school experience for our child. Words of warning, brace yourself.

The principal is a very abrasive and confrontational lady. Most unprofessional experience with her imaginable. Brace yourself.

i have been going to school here ever since kinder now i am entering 5th Grade the teachers are really nice and they explain things in different ways so that all kids can understand i thing that i dont like about TMES is that 4th And 5th graders have P.E. at the end of the day when it is really hot. Another thing that i didnt like about the pastyear is that there was no general music teacher like how there was one in the past. My favorite part of the past school year was probably the TWO overnight trips the 4th And 5th graders take every year one in August/September and one in May the one in May is more fun because the #rd Graders get to come!!!!. Another thing i love about this school are the Assistant teachers i like both of the Assistant teachers in 9-11. The way TMES puts kids in classes are not like any other school that i know of kinder is only 5 And ^ year olds but 6-9 is not the grade it is the age so 6-9 is 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders and 9-11 is 4th and 5th there is also middle school. I <3 TMES aka The Montessori Elementary School

My son started kindergarten at TMES this year. In all honesty, my list of pros and cons of this school pretty much even out. The school is small, more personal, more individual oriented - and I really appreciate that. I also really like that there is such a strong focus on music and art, but I think that there is a lack of focus on physical education and athletics. Also, the attitude towards standard school and testing is terrible (teachers are very snotty about Montessori being superior to traditional). My son was well ahead of kindergarten grade level in both reading and math when he started school, and it seems to me that he has not been challenged at all. Because he is able to figure things out on his own, he is often left on his own, and instructed to help other students rather than have the teacher do it or have him working on something new to him. I once went to pick him up early from school and was not allowed into the building! I understand not disrupting the classroom, but I should be able to walk in and get my own kid when I need to. I think the anti-parent policy (unless you volunteer all the time) should be addressed. Some of us can't be there every week.

I have worked at TMES for a few years now. The staff is a wonderful group of people who really work together well. It has been a great experience thus far.
