Let's talk about the pros first: 1. some teachers are great. 2. teaches Montessori method 3. nice classroom set up 4. finally they installed a new door that would lock when class is in session (i guess they got scared after what happend to the Sandy Hock). But after 3pm, it remains unlock, but if no one is at the front desk, anyone can just walk in. Now the cons: 1. the staff (not teachers) are clueless of what's going on. 2. the owner (she own 4-5 Montessori schools in the Irvine area), doesn't really care about your kid, just your money. 3. ridiculous long waiting list for this school...why why?? It's not that great. 4. expensive rate, with yearly increase at least $50 annually.
