Appeal to ALL, This may be good, But What I am hgearing from others and experienced ourself about this school. I will tell you these stafs are very rude and vey much rigid. They don't want to accomodate anything. In my case, before joing to school, they tested my son with Mrs Julia and they put in Ginny's class without knowing to us. I requsted to put back to Julia's class. They refused and told me very casually that you can withdraw your son. I done it. It's very bad exp on Money deposit. They did not give us back our deposit. Think twice before going there.
Stop and look no further! This is the school for you if you want a traditional Montessori education for your child. You don't become a number at this school, instead you truly become AFM family. I searched hard to find a quality Montessori when I first moved here to AZ. When I saw this one the classrooms were humming. The children where working independently there was peace, harmony, and organization throughout the classrooms. Many schools in this area claim to be Montessori (the name is not trade marked so anyone can use it without standards.) and they are not. This school closes on a Friday each year for a true teacher workday. The entire staff goes off for training updates. Other schools may only have one teacher that is certified. My child is truly ahead of the public schools and my challenge now is finding a school that can reach the standard of this one. I only wish they continued through higher grades. Al teachers are amazing! My child was in Mrs. Ginny and Mrs Arminder's class. If you want to volunteer you can do so many times throughout the year. This school opened to set new leaders and achievers out into the world and I believe they are succeeding.
My kids was in Mrs. Ginny's class. We are going to another school and We didn't sign contract for next year, the teacher didn't teacher my kids anymore. My friends's kids was in others teathers's class, they got the flash card when they knew beginning sound of 26 alphabet, but in Mrs. Ginny 's class, you must to know how to read 3 letter, then you can get the flash card(green bag), the means you are entering their education way. I think if my kids can read 3 letter word, why we don't need to your school for Education.
My kid attended AFM for 2 yrs, pre-K and K. AFM provides a well rounded education. There is a large focus on academics in addition to other activities. There is plenty of staff and they are all genuinely interested in doing their best for the kids. This is not like one of those private schools which are more interested in fundraising and making money rather than focusing on teaching. At AFM, they ensure that kids at the school excel in reading, writing and math and are way above public school level. Note that in order to get in this school, you have to register on their waiting list at least 2 years before your child starts in the school.
My kid attended this montessori for 4 years. It has been a very pleasing experiance. The teachers are very capable and they take time to understand the kids style of learning and teach the kids.
AFM SETS THE STANDARD for pre-K and K. The montessori philosophy and environment is perfect for this age. The teachers and staff are very experienced and caring. They let the children progress at their own pace. They bring the maximum potential out of the kids. Perhaps most impressive, they do a fantastic job giving leadership opportunities, building self-confidence, building self-esteem, and discipline. My daughter has blossomed in the 3 years she's attended. She will be 'graduating' this year with a fantastic foundation - the challenge now is finding an elementary school that will continue to challenge her.
AFM has the best, most well rounded education your money can buy in the SE valley - i wish it went on to higher grades : ( Our son and I were both delighted with the atmospehre, cultural diversity and amazing academics. i wish the public school system could go learn something from the admin and teachers here - My son misses Ms. Ginny and all his other teachers - extremely low child to teacher ratio and wonderful playgrd. True montessori - teachers instill a sense of leadership and pride in education that seems lost in todays society. love the Friday Peace program. Can't wait to send my other son there.
this is an excellent school - the environemnt is homey and safe - the classroom is flows - respect fo rteachers and good mannerisms are contacnlty checked, the acadmeics are at a level that is way beyond what any other charter or private could offer - i wish they had higher grade s- thisis true traditional educaiton with a wholesomeness you long for and great diversity as well.
Our daughter just started going to this school and from day 1 she has been a happy child. She loves going to school. i like the teachers because they have time to talk with parents.
My son has attended this school for 2 years for pre-school, and has had a wonderful experience. Excellent academics and great caring teachers.
