I really enjoyed my school years at harry stone. I had so many new experiences and was exposed to so much. The school had a lot of good teachers, and I learned a lot from them from my two years there.
My 8th grade son has had a wonderful experience at Harry Stone Montessori since he started in pre-K. The Harry Stone Middle School has been no exception. 7th grade classes are all Pre-AP and quite rigorous. Harry Stone has always had a terrific fine arts program, and I was even more impressed to learn that music and theater classes are offered every day for the Middle School students. My son has taken private piano lessons for four years, but having the opportunity to participate in piano class every day last year has taken him further in one year than the four years of private lessons combined. Harry Stone Middle School teachers are excellent and expect the best from the students. It has been my experience that Harry Stone is a nurturing place for students with high academic standards.
I have been very dissappointed in having my son here. This is his first year year and I truly don't know if my expectations were too high or they lack to be a productive school. When my son was struggling in his classes, I approached the teachers and then the principal and they all replied back to be that there are no tutoring hours available because of the lack of funds to pay teachers for such a service. I was appauled, as a teacher myself iw ould never expect to get paid for a service that I feel a teacher is responsible for giving all students. Most of my son's teachers lack technology skills when I asked them to print out a copy of the district mandated grade report they had no lcu was I was reffering to. Glad to say we will not be returning next year!
