Open Quote Too much play time. Going on hikes and then having recesses. Not enough time on instruction of core curriculum. Seems like whatever the teacher dreams up and labels as Montessori goes. Noticed teachers and school advisors scoffing at required tests from outside sources. Very concerned child will not perform well on high school tests that influence college admissions.
Principle seems more concerned about keeping teachers from complaining instead of educational leadership preparing students for admission into good colleges and perform well while there.

As far as treating the parents as partners, their idea of parental involvement seems to be leave the teaching to me and you do my grunt work and bring in snacks. Parents volunteer for bingo because we are tracking your volunteer hours.

Made requests concerning my child. My requests were denied for what appeared to be imperial reasons.

This school is basically just average concerning core competencies. I think there should be less hype and more real action toward education in this school. If you want your child to get good test scores for college entrance purposes, this school may not be the one to get the job done. Close Quote

Open Quote They have a beautiful environment (inside and out). The kids were very engrossed in their studies or chores and were respectful of all. I would highly recommend this program to anyone seeking a true Montessori education. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
