Open Quote Montessori in name only. This is a school majorly suffering from an identity crisis. I just got the word in an email from the "Executive Director" that the FOURTH principal in FOUR years has been fired. The administration knows NOTHING about education and even less about Montessori. The only people that seem to know anything is the teachers and they seem like they are prisoners. I've been a father in this school for a couple of years. The current ED seems to be a controlling person who can't keep staff. My kids have had several teachers over the years because they can't keep teachers. A friend asked me recently if this was a school for special needs students and I have to say there do seem to be some kids who act badly in all my kids classes. I am considering pulling my kids unless the board takes SERIOUS ACTION to control their ED. We've toured Lakeland Montessori and Magnolia Montessori Academy and I'm hoping that we will get them off the waiting list soon and into another school with more stability. 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.
