Open Quote The school administrators are arrogant, disrespectful and extremely narcissistic. They lack professionalism, common sense and basic fundamental skills needed to run a facility.
The way they communicate with parents are condescending and disrespectful . The only thing this school really cares about is test scores.Don t waste your time here, there are better options. Close Quote

Open Quote Overall going to the school was crap ,I didn't do anything interesting, it was boring I didn't learn anything new ,people there weren't very nice either the teachers were uncreative, though that is not their fault because they are put on very stupid restrictions, except for a few( the people at the front office, gifted teacher and a couple of the teachers that are already gone). I have already graduated the school and move onto a better one, but I think you not to put your kids in to the school unless their gifted students (you will spend most your time doing, you learn more in gifted then in normal) which is good because the rest of school sucks. But I was in the Montessori program, never know if traditional might be better. I hope the school becomes better in the future. Please don't take this personally. Close Quote

Open Quote I paid $600/mo each for my 2 kids to attend the Montessori here for ages 3 and 4. After paying a deposit etc... my 3 yr old was kicked out on the first day as "too young." I had built her up about the school for over a month and pulled her from head-start program. She was devastated. My 4 yr old lasted about 4 months but was so stressed out that she wetting her pants and instead of dealing with it, they sent her to the nurse as if she was sick and threatened to kick her out. Her reactions were natural for a new school at her age and ultimately they suspended her for having accidents. Which promptly stopped as soon as we left the school. If you don't want to deal with accidents, then don't teach 3 and 4 yr olds. It is natural. They made it worse. Both Montessori teacher did not have kids of their own. What a nasty environment. If you want your children stressed about education and not enjoying the learning process, go here. I never got all my money back. Never so insulted for paying to be somewhere and then treated with snobbery. We have never had these problems anywhere else. 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.
