This is school is the worst I hated it so much they put me with high schoolers and gave me high school work and all the classes are terrible. The principle smokes inside of the building and everyone smells it threw the whole school and almost all the high schoolers do pot. I think this school should be shut down and never re open. Never send your child here it will be the worst mistake of your life and you will regret it. It also cost way to much money
school has camera system in all classes but will not allow parents to view even if its compromising their children's safety. I told them i would remove my child from the school and they said that would be fine with them ..they would not allow me to view the video. very disrespectful director . beware!
How much is the tuition for preshoolers (age 2)? Thank you................... This thing wants me to post more than 15 words when all I had was one question. :-)
My three and half year old son loves going to this school. However there are pros and cons: Pros: Great quality top notch approach to each child, academic and social skills being learned, light physical exercise, no naps in PM. Cons: Expensive, many school breaks (to my knowledge winter in Dec, mid-winter in Feb, spring in Mar/Apr and schoold year ends third week in Jun when classes run only half day). Overall, I am still choosing this school because of it's uniquness and outstanding quality for child's development. I wish they had classes in summer as a "summer camps".
What a wonderful place. The teachers are so kind and dedicated. I feel very lucky to have my children here.
I never saw children cry because it was the last day of school until S.I. Montessori! My children love going to school every day. I am so thankful for the excellent education they are receiving and for the love of learning that has been instilled in them by their wonderful teachers!
Staten Island Montessori is a great place for your child to learn. The teachers are top notch and make learning an enjoyable experience. My husband and I get many compliments on our sons' good behavior and their articulation. When people ask us what school they attend, we say Staten Island Montessori.
I like the structure and organization. The teachers are simply the best! Great education and atmosphere.!
My nephews enjoy going to school and have good teachers and friends.
Great teachers, my daughter really likes going to school because of the great environment and supportive atmosphere.
Staten Island Montessori School has a wonderful director, fabulous staff, and amazing teachers that care about the development of each child individually. They work hard to make each child and parent feel welcomed at the school and strive for a family environment.
It is a great facility to learn and grow, special and individualized for all types of children
the teachers really care about the students and their philosphies on education are implemented beautifully in the classroom. My son is doing well and has learned so many new things. I genuinely feel that the staff cares about him, his needs, and our needs as a family.
Every day my child is learning something new and is able to reflect on the new material and demonstrate eagerness to return to school the next day - it's such a gift for me.
My granddaughter is enrolled in Montessori and is very happy there and learning a great deal.
S.I. Montessori has the most caring, dedicated collection of teachers I have ever encountered. My children get plenty of individualized attention and encouragement, ensuring they've really mastered material and preparing them for the next challenge. Strong academics in a family atmosphere, Staten Island Montessori is a school that feels like home.
The Montessori method of teaching coupled with the exemplary teaching staff make for a wonderful learing environment! My children are excellent students and thinkers thanks to this school and its teachers. Equally as important as the academics, are the social skills they have learned here. They have been taught to be kind, compassionate and well-mannered. This place is the best-kept secret on SI!
I wish I was a child again and could attend this wonderful school. The stuff is absolutely the best in the world! My children love it and it makes me the happiest person. Thank you Montessori School!!!
