My son started Portland Montessori last year and we love the program there. He has a sensory processing disorder so at times he can have a disproportionate reaction to things and his teacher has been outstanding and understanding. He provides a supportive and caring environment while still providing structure and guidelines. He has recognized the difficult times and activities for my child and has come up with alternatives to work around those difficult areas while preserving my child's dignity and respecting his personality. I have always gotten prompt and supportive responses to my emails and support as a parent. I really feel like the people at this school know and care for my child. Well worth the money. I encourage any parent who is already paying for daycare to use their money that supports their child's educational future. They also have scholarships available for financial aide. If you want to feel that your child is safe and in a great learning environment this is the school for you.

My husband and I LOVE this school and my daughter (in her 2nd year) tells me several times a week 'I love school!' The guides are terrific at guiding the children to their full potential, the classrooms are very well equipped with terrific Montessori materials, the staff is EXTREMELY friendly and responsive, the parents are friendly and involved, and the playground is a great safe and natural space for the kids to run, explore, and be creative in their play. It seems like a big school, with 6 different primary classrooms and now an elementary classroom, but it feels personal, since within a month the staff were all greeting my daughter and I by name. Most of the staff either are ex-guides or have children at the school (or both) and so are invested and well-versed in the Montessori curriculum and approach. I HIGHLY recommend this school!!!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

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 »
