Buyer beware. First off, if your child is sanguine or choleric, then look elsewhere. The school is only accepting of children that fit its mold (compliant, introverted, cautious, fearful of authority). The school as rigid, stale, out-dated, and in dire need of reevaluating Montessori s intentions and goals, who was the most accepting, loving, and open-hearted instructor to children from all walks of life. #1. The directress: You will notice that she s paranoid, controlling, dictatorial, and belittling. #2. Nepotism: The directress s husband is the music teacher, sister is a teacher, son is a teacher, and nieces are the administrative assistant and pseudo-accountant. I thought it was strange, although her family members seemed normal and nice. #3. The holding class : Firstly, the directress (and school policies) are very upfront about this holding class, which is essentially a room whereby the school evaluates if the child is Montessori material or not.
