Previous reviews are all accurate: school is excellent for lower elementary level, but consistant academic excellence is lacking in upper elementary school for all the reasons listed by others. Because school goes only through 8th grade equivilant, all students must transition to another program. That is where the inconsistancies in curriculum, educational progress and instructor ability can overwhelm a student and his/her family. School seems to lack a coherent set of goals and seems to lack oversight in achieving professed goals. Our experience leaves us feeling that it is a wonderful institution for those at third grade level and below. Since it is a Montessori program, it's difficult to apply a test based, quantitative evaluation to the program. Anecdotally, many parents of former students have told us the transition to other academies and public shcools have been difficult, with most stories revolving around students' weaknesses in math and science.
