I have two boys enrolled in MSODT and they both love it! The teachers are very interactive with the children. My younger son started coming here at the age of 4 months and he is almost two now. His language skills and awareness are superior to that of my older son when he was the same age (my older son began school at 13 months albeit at another school). My older son has excelled as well since enrolling here -- and his confidence has grown with that as well. I highly recommend MSODT-Clear Lake.

Don t trust them. I had enrolled my child for afterschool two months before public school was scheduled to open. But the day before public school opened, Montessori of Downtown called me saying they will not be able to pick up my child from his public school because they don t have any other children from that school. The school locates less than 1 mile from Montessori! That gave me such a panic, I started calling all the afterschool programs in Webster area, but since the school was set to open next day morning all the other afterschool programs were full. Finally I had to sign up my child with the most expensive afterschool program in Webster area. I am paying 20 dollars more per week now. So don t ever trust Montessori school of Downtown. They are not trustworthy people. What they say they will do and what they actually do has day and night difference. They have only one goal: Make money. It s not a very hygienic place either.

This is a great school, providing early education with a wonderful staff of teachers. Not only do they teach ABC's but they also stress interactive activities with other students. Two of our great grandchildren have attended this school. One for through the second grade and one now attending as a toddler. You couldn't find a better school.

Montessori School of Downtown Clear Lake campus is an excellent school. My daughters loved going to school every day and learned a tremendous amount. They began at 2-1/2 and 1-1/2 years of age and we did the 3-day a week program. The girls were were given lessons in Spanish and computers using ipads. They performed in seasonal school programs and attended annual school fairs. They learned about using their manners and the school even aided in their potty training. We were there for 2 years and all of the teachers they had were exceptional. Their curriculum covered so many topics and the projects and crafts the girls came home with were fun and well thought out. The teachers and staff are very professional and take their jobs seriously. The school is run so well and everyone is always smiling and happy. The campus is very nice and filled with light and very welcoming. I cannot say enough about how much we all loved this school and highly recommend it. Six months after moving away I am still looking for a school to meet my expectations after experiencing such a wonderful time with MSODT Clear Lake.

Our oldest has been attending MSODT for 3 years now in the School of Infants program and has blossomed tremendously. I feel as though the academic program there has helped develop her strengths. At 18 months old, she could speak 3-4 times more words than other kids her age. She's learning Spanish and she's much more organized and tidy than I would expect children her age to be. The school has taught her so many skills that are essential in development. And at the end of the day, she has a good time and comes home happy. They seem to have a good balance of play and work and she really enjoys the special summertime activities at the splash pad as well. For the most part, the teachers are responsive when I call or ask questions. They really do seem to love and care for our children and have expressed this when we told them we were moving. Overall, we've had a good experience with this school.

Never again!!!! Do NOT send your child there. Very poor teaching level, uncertified teachers and untrustable staff in addition the principle is the worst person there. The only thing that she can do is to answer the phone and says her famous sentence I don t know !!!! and if you need further info about owner, he is . It was the worst school that I ever experienced with my kids

This school was the worst thing I could have done to my son. I am sorry he had to spend even five minutes in the presence of such incompetence and cruelty.

We are leaving the school after 5 years of going there. In that span of time, the faces have changed but the same poor leadership, unfair treatment based on reasons you probably already know (use a little imagination). I have ignored these things until lately when my child suddenly became uncomfortable going to class. There are many options in Clearlake, hope you consider this warning very seriously.

Montessori School of Downtown (Clear Lake campus- Infant School)---This school has been wonderful to our son, now 2 yrs & 2 mths (started at 15 mths old) . Every time, we have come to pick him up, he has seemed very happy (playing outside, circle time, potty time or washing his hands...). Transparency: one can pick up one's child at anytime (= you can just drop in and check on your child) . They have huge windows through which you can see what the children are doing. Our son has skin problems (eczema, prone to rash...); even going to school with a diaper rash, he came back home with it gone (this was at 15 mths old). He is learning a tremendous amount of things: nursery rhymes, manners (thank you...), how to eat (with a spoon)... Miss Meenachi (coordinator) is WONDERFUL w/ all the kids & so were his 2 teachers!

Do NOT send your children to this school. There is NO transparency, the leadership is apathetic and uncaring, and we caught them several times not being forthcoming with the truth about several situations. I know many people who have had issues and left this school. I could go on and on about how horrible this experience was.

My son has been going to MSODT since he was 18 months. He has completed pre-primary and K there. The school is great academically. The provide a great love of learning. The teachers are very involved with the child's learning and are nurting as well. There have been some administrative issues in the past, but other than that the school is wonderful for overall development.

There is little transparency and we were never sure of the activities of our child. They use a card to inform the parents on the daily activities, but we have reasons to believe that they did not report the truth. The human touch and the relationship with the parents is almost non-existing and the conferences with the teacher need to be scheduled in advance and can't never be spontaneous. The leadership of the principal is very poor. She is only proactive for the financial issues, otherwise hard to get in touch with. Finally, and most important, at times we have seen teachers behaving with no loving care. We doubt if that is the right job for them. In short, we do not recommend this school to any parents.

Their before and after school program is horrible. They have gotten my daughter late to school 4 times this semester and it is only September. They are extremely understaffed and you can never get a hold of the director when needed.

This school is fantastic! My granddaughter went to pre-k, and just excelled academically. In addition, she recieved violin, ballet, and spanish lessons. Computer classes enhanced the overall academic goal. The teachers are exceptional. They care about the children and strive to meet individual needs. The down side would have to be the financial expense. This would be the perfect school if the tuition was not so expensive.
