School Official Point of View

I am proud to have been part of this school community for the past 16 years as a parent, teacher and, for the past five years, as the head of school. The teachers and parents have formed a uniquely close community and work together for the benefit of each child. I encourage anyone searching for an alternative school to visit MSHR and observe for yourself the environments of respect that allow each child to work independently and in community with their peers.

Focus on the whole child and not on mindless test taking and wrote memorization. I highly recommend this school

Cleveland Montessori (formerly the Montessori School at Holy Rosary) has provided a solid educational foundation for my children. They are well rounded individuals who are able to follow their own interests and have the skills to get along in a variety of settings. It is a small school with potential for growth and has a good reputation for quality Montessori.

well rounded school. I don't agree with the last evaluation. The school provides a good learning environment for kids.

This school is one of the worst in children education. Literally if you are looking for your child to learn and advance in his academics, then this is not the appropriate choice. Basically what they teach basic skills for a daily living, which is great for the young ones, like sowing, making coffee, cleaning, etc. But seriously it's not for older children who are supposed to learn how to read and write....The principal does't have an idea of what's going on with your child (even though it's a very small school) and nether do some of the very same teachers who are in charge of your child!!! They preach healthy life style, while many are morbidly obese, they focus on the community more than what's going on in the classroom, etc. The education is erratic, when you go to observe the class, the children all seem to be lost not making any choices at all, and the teachers are just looking at the clock.....

My daughter started at the school 2 1/2 years ago and we absolutely love the school. The teachers, except for one, are intelligent and engaging. Our daughter has learned so much since starting here in preschool. The parents are very involved with the school and the environment is family oriented. Most of the parents know each other and interact regularly, which helps to build strong bonds in the school between families. Out of the entire school, there are 3 faculty/staff members with which I have experienced negative issues. The director can be rude and abrupt and there is one particular teacher that does not perform well in the Montessori environment. Despite this, the school is well run, affordable and safe. Genuine care and understanding goes into the education of each child. While we have considered other schools after Kindergarten, we have found there is really no equal comparison and we have decided to stay put. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

I have had two children graduate from the Montessori School at Holy Rosary and I currently have 3 children enrolled. I have been very pleased -- both with the Montessori method of education and with the unique community here. My older children are in high school now and are both 'A' students - well prepared and able to think and act with great self-motivation and independence. I like the 'freedom with responsibility,' the well-prepared teachers, the beautiful and intelligently designed Montessori environment. This has it way over the 'command and control' traditional educational environment. I also like the social justice and faith community here -- using the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program to teach the Christian faith through hands-on materials, scripture and liturgy -- all involving the child personally in their own spiritual formation, rather than being 'talked at' by the teacher. And we all love the Little Italy neighborhood.
