I have a 3 year old and 5 year old at Monroe Montessori School. Both children are on their 2nd year at this amazing school. Our 5 year old was reading with in her first week of kindergarten. Our 3 year old is writing with great form and knows the sounds of each letter in the alphabet. The school class sizes are a great ratio of students and teachers ( about 7:1) and the teachers are amazing. When my wife and I were searching for schools in the area we found that a lot of schools or day care facilities state that they follow The Montessori curriculum. We found that the only one that truly followed this curriculum was Monroe Montessori. They have a toddler program and go all the way to 6th grade. We plan on keeping our kids at this school through 6th grade. By the time they reach 6th grade lets hope that Monroe Montessori goes all the way to 12th. Monroe Montessori has been teaching kids in Monroe since the late 1970's.

Our daughter has done very well at Monroe Montessori. The teachers are excellent and the ratio of students to teachers is great.

Our family has been a part of Monroe Montessori for five years. Our child has enjoyed every year here and has always been encouraged to strive for his best both academically and socially. As parents, it is most comforting to know that your children are in a safe, nurturing, and enriching school environment. Monroe Montessori has exceeded these standards for our family.

We have been at Monroe Montessori for five years. It has been such an amazing journey watching our child develop and learn at his own pace. The staff is first rate and we highly recommend this affordably priced alternative to public.

Both my children had wonderful early education expreiences at Monroe Montessori. They learned to socialize and learn in a highly structured environment which prepared them wonderfully for joining the public school for Kindergarten. The teachers were kind and involved with each child and created lessons to each student's individual needs.

I am so greatful this program along and this specific school is available for my children. The one on one learning and the fact that your child is encouraged to be a self starter in their learning path is such an amazing tool to have at such an early age. I HIGHLY recommend this school and the staff is fantastic.

Kids learn so much more and alot faster than at public schools. This school offers one on one help to kids who need it because the class sizes are small enough to allow it. There is also more than one teacher which helps students to learn and comprehend material faster.

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.
