I have even seen teachers being bullied by the building principal. That is not an example of compassion and peace at all. I have also seen teachers shunned by others. One teacher is not liked because of her ideas and four teachers will not talk with her. There is a large turn over off teachers that go in and out especially if you are not liked. Also, count the number of blond haired teachers.
If your child is in special ed, they are not part of the Montessori experience. The reason is that if the child transfers, they can't receive montessori instruction. Who said anything about moving? Special Education teachers are not trained and I have counted more special ed classroom then normal educations classrooms especially on the 2nd and 3rd floors.
This school has D's and F's on the school report card. Montessori is better than this.
If the school was on the same page with teachers who are trained and not, I would be fine. Also, if you have a child in special educations, they are not involved with montessori in any way. I have problems with this.
Tremont is terrible! My little girl enter 6th Grade with A's and a amazing grade point average when she left May 22nd she was failing nearly everything! One teacher in particular Ms.Yendrik told my daughter she wasn't aloud to finish her science fair. This teacher also failed her on purpose saying the assignment wasn't done when I helped Ariana and made sure she turned in on time! If u have a child entering 6th get them out of that school!
Tremont Montessori is a wonderful choice within CMSD. A valuable montessori curriculum within a public school is a rare and special find. Teachers and staff are committed to the students and the surrounding neighborhood of this citywide-draw school fully supports the school and its programming. It's a gem in the city of Cleveland!
This is a very good public school that is really under the radar. We've been at the school for several years, I am impressed with the deepening dedication to the Montessori method and focus on allowing only Montessori-accredited teachers. The school is not close to us but they offer busing with no trouble, and it's worth the distance for this unique and quality experience (free!). Multi-age classrooms allow the children to learn from each other as well as their teachers. They have a large special ed component and have a genuinely diverse student body; this is not a boutique school, it is an actual Cleveland public school with a specialized program. The Pre-k is especially awesome for building early readers and organized minds. Special projects, trips, and peace initiative are bonuses. Not too many perfect schools, but this one is working well, and getting better.
