That the learning is individualized based on the childs level and interests.

A Montessori education should be the standard teaching method throughout the country. Its student idividualized approach and tactile/visual learning style is second to none. And Park Road Montessori makes this method even more notable with its awesome teachers and staff that consistently go the extra mile to ensure sudents have what they need to learn and parents are inspired to stay involved. And our PTO is awesome too. I call it the Park Road Parent Machine!

I like many things about Park Road Montessori. I love how involved the parents are. They are very dedicated. The principal is never in her office. She walks around the school visible for the parents to see. My son knows who his principal is. The ladies at the front dest are the most caring and helpful secretaries that I have ever meet, they go out of their way for a lot of things. The school has a beautiful showcase of art work out side the classroom doors. I can go on and on. But these are a few things why I like Park Road so much.

I love Park Road Montessori because the staff is wonderful and they truly care about the students. They will go above and beyond to help your child meet their needs.

Posted September 24, 2009

Each kid learns at his/her own pace. Teachers understand each child's capabilities and limitations, and work with the child to enhance the first and to overcome the second. That teaching strategy builds the child's self esteem, promotes his/her creativity and his/her love for learning. The parent's involvement and the administrator's support are also pivotal for the success of this great school.

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.
