An experienced AMI trained Montessori elementary teacher started in September 2004, and a second one will begin in September 2006. The program is developing into a thriving elementary community and will add a year each year until it reaches 1st-6th grade. The best way for you to know if this is the right program for your child is to schedule an observation. You'll be amazed at the joyful learning you see.

I have a daughter who went to this school for three years with the same teacher in what they call their primary class (3yrs-Kindergarten). I absolutely love the teacher (who my younger son has now) and the school is very organized, professional and great with the students. I would highly recommend this school's primary education without reservations! However, now that my daughter has moved up to the Elementary level, (1-3 grade) I am not as happy with her teacher. She is good with the kids, but it is difficult to communicate with her on a parent-teacher level. Since there is only one Elementary class, I am looking at other options for her 2nd grade year.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
