Gateway Montessori School 5

I had my now seventeen year old daughter in this school from age three until entering first grade, which she did so testing at the fourth grade reading level. It wasn't easy as a single mom to leave my daughter somewhere from 8am til 6pm and wouldn't have done so if I doubted for a second that her time and what it took to keep her there was worth it. Not only is the curriculum well rounded and proven to be effective, the Director has the ability to command authority and provide structure in a nurturing, caring way. True, I had to address concerns of a child that was a bit aggressive, but kids are kids. and it's up to the parent to be on top of it and ensure the school resolves it, which they did every single time. It saddens me that the negative reviews is in no way, based on my experience, a true reflection of this school and it's leaders. If you value education at the young critical years, then this is a school worth considering.

I wouldn't leave my child here if it was the last place on earth! Most of the teachers are rough with the kids, my daughter fell and her teacher was told by the owner to leave her there and not pick her up because you shouldn't spoil children! My daughter was 2 years old!! The teachers also have no patience with the children. There is basically an air of discontent and I think it's because of the owner being very unfriendly to both the children and her own employees. This is not the Montessori model I had come to believe would be right for child.

Overall I was pleased with the academic progress my preschooler made. The only subject I saw was weak was writing. Their program didn't emphasis writing and/or story retelling. I did that component at home. The teachers have experience with children but they lack knowledge of current early education pedagoy.
