I've tried to contanct the school using the phone # but it has been disconnected. When I try to visit the website I get redirected. Has this school been closed?

My children have come a long way on the first half of the school year thanks to this school. My daughter loves her class and classmates and I constantly watch her apply what she's learned in class to everyday play while at home. My son's attention span has improved immensely thanks to the wonderful and greatly qualified teachers at this school. I am glad I made the decision to enroll them here. We plan on keeping them there too.

My daughters have been at Kriterion for a few months now and I just love everything about the school. My girls come home and tell us that they'd attended a puppet show that explains a frogs life cycle or a play that had many instruments. We searched for the right place for months and I am grateful that we found it!

My daughter has been at Kriterion for two years now and next year our son will also attend. We love the school. The teachers are very encouraging and the environment is great. They really bring out the best in all their students and create in them a desire to learn and to really enjoy it.

A few years ago, searched the entire city for the 'right' environment for my child.Upon visiting Kriterion and meeting the teachers and administrators,I knew I'd found something unique and special. My child has now been at Kriterion for about 3 years and we couldn't be more thrilled with his progress and love of learning. The classrooms (housed in majestic mansions with plenty of windows and beautiful woodwork), are designed for creating comfort and freedom in learning that traditional schools lack. Years later, and I know we made the right choice!

The curriculum and energy are balanced at Kriterion Montessori. There are enriching activities such as art, music, cultural and language opportunities as well as a strong emphasis on reading and writing. All of the teachers we had contact with were very warm and nurturing. The director is very responsive and proactive in the school with the students, faculty and parents. Students learn to respect who they are and each other; and to be clear in their meaning. My daughter learned how to learn and developed a love of learning. The most difficult part was for me to sit on my hands and let her find her way. Would have liked more field trips, but in retrospect...the students are highly encouraged to open their minds and investigate, not get on a bus and be dazzled.

The faculty at Kriterion are 100% dedicated to the students. They go above and beyond to insure that all students are learning without placing unnecessary pressure on a young child to learn. Not one student is considered to be inept and the staff will determine the best method for each child to find the 'fun' in learning that is lost in the public school system today.
