Dr. Banks-Williams is an amazing principal who shows dedication to her students, their families and teachers. My children love going to school each day. The teachers are truly gifted and nurturing. This was by far the best educational choice made for my children for elementary school.

My children have thrived in this school. The teachers are dedicated and excellent role models. It is a warm atmosphere with a small school feeling. There is plenty of parent involvement with a strong PTA. I wish the school continued to 8th grade.

I am happy with the Montessori learning,My childrens are doing well and reading above theirs grade levels. My concern is that since 2009 I see the school state test scores going down. I really hope Montessori 31 can pull up their state test scores levels back up. If not they will have to take a good look and see what went wrong and fix the problems.

I sent my child to Montessori School 31 for prek and k and I felt that my child excelled in these classes. However, the school does need improvements in the higher grades. They need to bring in more qualified teachers that can teach the upper classes; so, the children could have a good education which is lacking at this time. I did hear that the school will be going through changes in September with a new administration. I would hate to see the school not improve. They do have some great teachers that give their time to the children.

Do not send your child to this school!! The problems with the non-teaching staff are too great to numerate. The principal does not understand the younger children

This school used to be rated as an 8 by great schools and was downgraded to a 4 based on one years bad exam results. Makes no sense to me. Out son has flourished in this school. Teachers are very committed. The school appears to use a 'hybrid' Montessori system with a focus on the 3 Rs over and above the creativity and independence instilled by the Montessori system. Our son used to go to a Montessori private school. When he recently attended a kids birthday from that school I was able to observe that he was way ahead of those kids. All in all, a great school.
