Open Quote I can't speak to the general program, but the Montessori program at Drew is wonderful. We had our child a supposedly "better" neighborhood school, but were unhappy there the administration was rigid, the school was overcrowded, the principal was distant... The principal at Drew is wonderful, the teachers are caring, the Montessori experience is very child-centered, we have no complaints. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is made up of two different "schools" in one building. I have two boys that go there in the Montessori program. One is in Kindergarten and the other is Pk-3. We love the school and are very grateful that we got into the Montessori program there. The Montessori goes from 3 years old until 5th grade. The teachers are great and very involved. The principal for the entire school has a Montessori background. The only reason I didn't give the school 5 stars is because of the two schools in one model. The school board is talking about moving the Montessori students to their own school in 2-4 years. 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.
