This school was a disappointment in many ways. From the staff to the administration and beyond. Unfortunate because The Montessori Philosophy is wonderful.

We had our child there for almost three years in the primary classroom. While we were there, the head of the school changed bringing a HUGE improvement in the school. He is a great head of the school and great teacher. The teachers however are the same. Very prepared on the method, but less on handling diversity and sometimes way too invasive on private matters. This has been pretty difficult for our child. Also, I have witnessed some quite unprofessional behaviors of teachers, who think of learning disabilities in normal children because they don't behave as expected. Glad it was not with us, however. Hopefully the head of the school will change that as well. The parent involvement is for sure a lot. Unfortunately, it is pretty difficult to get connected with people.

I attended Omni Montessori for 4 years. I enjoyed it, academically, but socially it is not the best place to grow up. Omni is very obsessed with labels. In the Upper Elementary and Adolescent programs, students judge others easily based on clothes, parents, etc. My parents divorced while I was still a student, and they lost many friends because of it. Parents at Omni are shallow, rude, and narcissistic. I had to deal with rude adults many times as a child. Also, Omni plays favorite families. A family that helps the school very much (financially, of course) yet has a child with strong behavioral problems is totally ignored, creating an unfortunate environment for other students. I am overall disappointed at the fake-ness of the parents and the students. Also, the quality of the teachers has greatly deteriorated in the past five years. I wouldn't really recommend this school to anyone unless they were looking at Primary. Montessori was originally intended for early education. NOT high school. If your child is a preschooler that would benefit from an alternative teaching style, this may be the place for them. An older student? Less so.

As of the 2010-2011 school year, Omni does offer an outstanding afterschool program. Our family has been at Omni for 10 years and it is an outstanding environment for children age 3 through 9th grade. I hope they add a high school program soon!

My daughter has attended Omni Montessori for 4 years. She loves her school and so do we! The academics are great. By the time she 5 was multiplying and dividing, She was also reading very well and writing in cursive. She is in first grade now and loves being in a new classroom with 2nd and 3rd graders. IT is a TRUE montessori environment so she gets to choose her work and move around the classroom, they work a lot in small groups so she really learns how to work well with others. She has incredible focus and concentration. If you are searching for an AMI certified Montessori program - this is the school for you.

Omni is an extraordinary school. Passionate teachers, caring community, superior academics, unique life experiences for the students. Our family has been at Omni for ten wonderful years. I can't imagine a better place for my children.

I love this school. The teachers are passionate about teaching and the parents are dedicated. I wish they had after-school care. The lack of this care makes it difficult for wroking families to remain in Omni.

We didn't even get to experience the school. My 2 3/4 years old daughter was not excepted. She wouldn't sit still on a stool for 20 min. and keep her hand in her lap. These are the instructions we received from the teacher before the interview: 'Don't touch anything. Keep hands in lap while listening.'

I am very impressed with this school. My daughter is 7 and this is her first year at Montessori. Usually children begin at 3-4 years old. I told the staff about her learning and attention problems and they were very willing to work with her and help her develop good learning styles. Her teacher is patient and understands kids all develop at a different pace. They focus on the childrens' strenghts and help to develop their weaknesses. Wonderful supportive environment but kids must learn to work independtly with supervised guidance.
