Park Road Elementary school would be my top choice even if I were offered a full scholarship to any private school in Charlotte. The teachers are dedicated and have a passion for thier craft. The students learn in ways just not possible at most schools. There is a wonderful community of parents and staff that I am so happy to be a part of.

Park Road Montessori is a wonderful school that brings out the best in each and every child. This is my daughter's third year there and I am truly amazed at what she has learned. The creativity that is encouraged in the classroom helps the students learn how to learn. Not because they have to but because they want to. I could not ask for a better school.

There is just an excitement and passion when you walk the halls of Park Road Montessori. The faculty, staff, students & parents just believe in and love this place. The teachers are amazing, creative and are given permission to really soar with their students in their own unique ways. My son started @ Park Rd. a 4 years old (had just turned 4) for Pre-K and was reading within a few months. Unreal. I love the whole ethos of the school...caring for the earth and each other and being responsible citizens. Can't say enough postive things!

Park Road Montessori was just the school we were looking for! It gives our daughter the diversity of public school, while allowing for intimacy in the classroom and best of all...an education in a way that she is enjoying immensly.

The teachers, the method and the entire school environment is just the best! My son is an amazing child and Park Road has allowed all of his positive traits to shine through and make him feel grounded and happy. He loves math, going to school, doing his work, and even had the confidence to elect to take the bus at 5 years old!

Posted September 21, 2009

I love that Park Road is a Montessori school. The curriculum, campus and even extracurricular activities are all designed to educate the whole child...to create a well rounded and responsible child. The fact that the teachers are with the children for 2-3 years truly allows them to get to know a child and nurture them. The school is everything I could want for my child's educational foundation!

Five of our children have attended PRM over the last six years, AND we have no complaints! This is exceptional school with a great sense of community, and my kids are better for having gone there.

This school is awsome! my son will be starting his third year here in 06 and I have no complaints. The parent involvement is amazing and so is the staff. I recommend it totally!

I have 2 children who attend this montessori school. Each child learns at his or her own pace and children are encouraged to help eachother. I can not stress how important it is to research montessori philosophies before sending your child to a school that uses this approach. It is an extremely effective non-traditional way of teaching that has been proven to work. I knew this was an exceptional school when my 4 year old is doing multiplication in a peaceful environment next to a child who is learning his numbers.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
