The quality of education and staff has decreased so much! My son went here four years ago and we were so happy with the staff and learning. I sent my daughter there the month of September 2013 and we were very disappointed! I would really suggest not to Send your child there, all they care about is making money! The director has no clue what she's doing, her name is Megan. Ever since Julie left it's been a big mess! Versha Patel only cares about money!!! I heard one of the toddler teachers screaming at the child and calling them a baby, she said "why are you crying, what are you a baby?" Then she grabbed his arm and pulled him to the bathroom!!!!!! Please do not send your child there!!!!
I have 2 children who attend this school and our family could not be happier. The teachers are totally dedicated and are excellent. The children really enjoy learning and as a result the academic standards are high. Social responsibility, kindness, and respect are also emphasized. Most importantly, my children love coming to school. The administration is very organized and supportive. Together this makes for a wonderful school and one that we are happy to be a part of.
We have been very happy with Castle Hills Montessori. My son started there when he was 2 and he is now very well prepared for all the private kindergarden school admission tests, interviews, etc. The school's emphasis on diversity is a big plus - weekly classes in Spanish, Chinese, International Week activities, diverse students and faculty, etc. And I especially like that the music program is not just singing but also includes lots of instruments and learning to read music. Excellent curriculm and early learning - not a day care by any means.
Mrs. Traci is a superb teacher! This is my son's second year at this school. He is now in the third grade, and we are already devastated that we'll lose Mrs. Traci after this year, since the school does not go beyond the third grade. She makes every day in her classroom different and challenging in fun ways, motivating and rewarding to my son and his classmates, even though they all range in age, knowledge and interests. She identifies specific opportunities that each child needs to work on at their current level of progress, so you can clearly see that she knows and cares about your child. My son feels loved at school and he respects and adores Mrs. Traci. She also teaches them manners and talks about various values that one would only hope their children would hear about in school. And she lives those values in the class every day, making it so much more effective for children to follow and apply. The school itself is very bright and neat; lots of fun events; all staff is great, caring and respectful. It's the Montessori experience at its best! My son loves it and his knowledge and skills are now at one full grade level above his friends attending third grade at other schools!
