I cannot say enough about the experience that we have had with Beach Montessori. The teachers are very caring and the learning environment is fun, yet structured. My kindergartner has always had trouble keeping his focus, but he is now reading and doing math problems at a level that I never expected him to do at the age of five! Even my three year old, who started the year with trouble potty training and no desire to learn, has become accident free and excited to learn thanks to the dedicated staff and wonderful Montessori tools. As a military family, it is very hard for my kids to adapt to new schools, but it has been a very pleasant experience with Beach Montessori. I am very grateful to have found this school and highly recommend it!

While the Christian influence is evident throughout, the Montessori part is a bit more hit or miss. Not all teachers are Montessori qualified, and even if they are, are not required to teach via the Montessori method. I liked all the teachers and they seemed genuinely interested in my kids (I had two enrolled, one at PK and one at K levels). When we enrolled, I emphasized that I wanted more Montessori in my kids' instruction, not the public preparatory work they also do. Yet it took 1/2 the year for the actual Montessori materials to be moved into my daughter's classroom. Prior to that point, the materials were stored in the classroom of a teacher who is not Montessori certified and did not use the materials in her lessons. My son started in one classroom, but when he started resisting going to school in the morning, I checked in with the school--turns out he had been placed with the less Montessori method of the two classes, and once he was shifted to the more free-form Montessori-style class, he did much better--even though that teacher was not Montessori certified. We will not be returning next year.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
