My daughter has been at BAMH since early primary, and is now in upper elementary. I don't think AMI Monstessori is right for all children, but it has been excellent for her. She has a very strong foundation in basic academics, and has had the opportunity to pursue her interests in science and art. Her standardized tests at the end of third grade bore out how well BAMH is preparing her academically. She tested at high school level or above on all but one subject, where she tested at 6th grade. She also had three subjects (science, social studies, and listening) where she tested at post-high school level. More importantly, she is learning how to think critically and creatively, direct her own learning and mastery, and be a leader in her peer group.

Not impressed at all. My child was at a previous montessori school, but aged out so we had to find a new school. We were initially very impressed with the teacher, but within a few months, our faith in her diminished. We are very involved parents and we were never told about any issues with our child completing day work until we received it in an email...and we had just had a parent teacher conference the week before! Then when we requested a conference, the teacher was in attendance, but the only one speaking was Ms. Heibert, the owner. After that meeting when we asked questions she didn't like, such as why no one mentioned any issues in the first conference, all of a sudden, my child became a target by the teacher and children. It was also evident all Ms. Heibert cared about was the tuition money, because when we discussed pulling our child, she was sure to tell us we would still have to pay the entire term, even if our child was no longer going there....which is just wrong. We took our child out at the end of the year and found another local montessori school where our child is excelling has many friends and the owners care more about the kids than the tuition.

Bay Area Montessori House is an awesome school that truly meets the needs of each student. My son has flourished in this caring, nurturing environment. It is obvious that the teachers and the administration are committed to offering a quality authentic Montessori program that benefits each child. It is a joy to watch my son become responsible and more independent.

We transferred into this school and it was not a good fit. I received very little feedback from the staff regarding my child's progress. Also, I had the distinct impression that the teacher did not like my child. I think it may work for people that start in the program from the beginning or for children that are very compliant.

The school is not what it is advertised..One parent discribes it as they follwo the child. Mychild left as well as 14 other families. All our kids have had issues in math and reading. 100% of us were thos parents that had asked uestions regarding a children learning and were immediately shunned and forced out through various actions. Our kids 100% have struggled in Math and Reading. There is no homework nor progressd reports that the school provides for your records. They have conferences but are not allowed to give you a copy of the report. " It will be given to you upon your departure".

My kids have attended both private and public schools in Texas. This is, by far, the best place for kids up through the 6th grade. The teachers are amazing and the the administrators are fantastic. They care about the kids, the families and the staff. My kids are far more advanced than other kids their age, and I believe in my heart that it is simply because of the program at BAMH.

The BEST school in the Houston Area! BAMH provides each student an excellent learning experience in a caring and accepting environment. I have had children in the school for the last 11 years. The experienced and attentive director and the entire staff practice authentic Montessori principles "FOLLOW THE CHILD" - (Always putting the best interests of the child first). All children, whether academically challenged or gifted, are enpowered and encouraged to acheive their best. Graduates of the school continue to enjoy learning and academic success ( Advanced Placement / Honor Society /Scholarships) through High School and College. BAMH children are often identified and recognized for their exceptional behavior, manners, courtesy and work ethic. I encourage any parent searching for the BEST academic home for their children ( ages 2-12) to contact the Director and visit the school.

the academic program insist that the children are all taught according to their capabilities but that is not true when it is biased and children are not given a solid foundation to build up on. Promotes advanced learning but does not compare their standards of academic achievement to public schools

By far, the best Montessori school in the Greater Houston area. Each child is fully engaged in learning . Children learn to think, problem solve, and follow their interests. My husband, an engineer, marvels at the materials and approach to teaching both math and science. Our children are internalizing concepts that will enable them to be successful in any career chosen. The teaching staff is excellent and caring. Also, as a result of the Children Around the World Festival and the diversity in the schol, different cultlures are understood and respected.

I have been affiliated with this school for 6 years. My child has attended since she was 2.5 years of age. I have seen a great deal of advancement in science and mathmatics. Her appreciation for diversity is heart felt and her love for learning is amazing. I have recommended many families and they have all given the school praise

This is an amazing place. I have three sons enrolled at BAMH, and I am amazed daily at the academic progress they are achieving. I believe they would achieve far less in a standard public school. The staff at BAMH are the best! Each offers something different, but the one thing that remains a constant is the care they have for each child. Another great thing about BAMH is the fact that the kids generally don t have homework. They can come home and play like kids, rather than being bogged down with memorization and reading drills. But, please don t think it takes away from their academics. My 8 year old reads at advanced levels, my 6 year old does math advanced levels, and my 4 year old is starting to do both very well. This place is unbelievable!

School has a great objective in creating thriving students at their pace and requirements. School is going through changes and should be checked to instill the objectives of the child are being met.
