All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness,
which includes important information like contact details and test scores.
It’s up to the school community to take the next steps.
As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families

As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs,
and more with an Official school profile.
The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL
as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo,
and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
We swore by Progressive for many months with our infant twins. At first, they had a teacher in the infant room and an assistant at all times. During the summer, the teacher leaves and it just becomes a daycare which is not what we paid for. So, we figured when school was back in session, we were assured, that a Montessori teacher would come back, and that didn t happen. I was told they may not even get a teacher in the infant room. Keep in mind that infant in the Montessori world is generally up to 18months so not having a teacher for 12+ month kids is not what we wanted. The other issue that made us leave was me overhearing a teacher SCREAMING at a kid. I inquired to the staff who sat at the desk and she assured me she would go check into it. She came back and told me it was the teachers son but I was NOT ok with my children being exposed to that kind of behavior. Last, the director that works in the mornings is very rude. Daily, I carried in twins in carriers, by myself. She would just sit at the desk and stare at me when I walked by, often just sitting there not working, on the phone, etc. Unbelievable.

I think it's funny that the person who wrote a review about not being able to get in the door without a key fob decided to complain and be frustrated instead of just getting a key fob. This is a small school with sweet teachers. Our baby has blossomed here, and we look forward to seeing what she learns in the toddler classroom. As a mom, I first felt guilty about not keeping my child with me all day. But now that she's so active and constantly learning, I am glad she is at Progressive where there are screen-free activities to keep her busy brain engaged. We have brought Montessori home- setting up a mini table and chairs for her to take her meals and read her books. She prefers it over the high chair :) My friends with babies who are not in a school like Progressive struggle to keep their kids engaged, and end up putting them in front of the TV at home. I am happy to pay tuition to have our daughter learn while we are working.

My son has been going to this school for about 1 month. Let me start off by saying their customer service sucks! The front door is locked for security reasons (understandable) but there is hardly ever anyone at the front to let me in. I've seen other parents use a key fob to get in, but we were never offered one. We knew we would be moving soon and our son would be going to a different school so I didn't bother to ask for one. However, they do have a doorbell. So every morning, I'm ringing the door bell (one time for about 3 minutes) and no one comes to the door. I usually get let in by another parent who is dropping off their child. Secondly, the staff seems unprofessional. The first week my son started, I was able to just walk in (after another parent of course) and go to the infant room to get my son. Then all of a sudden, the receptionist appeared and asked me for ID because she was not familiar with who I was. This happened twice! Then today, as I was walking up to the front door, with my baby in his car seat, I saw the staff member and receptionist look at me from inside and then they walked off! So glad we do not have to deal with this anymore after this week.

This school is amazing! I love the people there. The director is in control and knows what she is doing. The lead teachers there are trained and certified and the assistants are on there way to complete their degrees in the Montessori field. I trust the school and the individuals there.
