My daughter has went to cornerstone since she was 18 months old and I can honestly say it's the only bill I have each month that I don't think twice about. My husband and I are on a pretty tight budget but this by far is worth every penny. I don't think twice at work regarding my daughter's safety or care. Not only is she in a safe, clean, loving environment she is learning so much more than could ever teach her. At around 2 years old she was able to point out continents on a globe and around 3 years she started Spanish. Cornerstone's faculty has taught me to be a better parent. Thank you!

Two of our kids graduated kindergarten at Cornerstone and one is in preschool. Needless to say we have been quite pleased with our experience. The growth that all three have and are currently displaying shows the type of quality teachers, facilities, and leadership that exists at this school.

I miss this place. It is the most wonderful environment. I wish this school went to the eighth grade. The owner is the most caring person you will ever met. All of the teachers are great. After leaving here it is so sad that public schools are not even close to as wonderful. I wish we could still be there.

My son has been at this school since he was 4. It has been a wonderful experience and environment for him. There is a Spanish Immersion program which is so beneficial for our American children. The teachers and staff have always taken any of my concerns seriously. This school has been at this serene location for over 20 years and have alumni that went to the school as children and come back to teach or do there internships there! Highly recommend this school for youngsters

We had an absolutely horrible experience at this school! The teacher in our son's class did not take into consideration a slow to warm temperament, and did some pretty horrible punishing things. The director of the school was non-apologetic and uninterested. We had to remove our son from this school after an inexcusable event occurred . He entered another with no problems at all (expect for his memories from the bad school experience).

Corner stone Montessori is a very organized and tranquil place for children 18mo. through kindergarden to learn. It has been affordable, because the parents help and organize fund raisers to keep the tuition from raising. My son has learned alot through his own explortion of materials provided in the class room. He has truly thrived in this environment and has blossomed as a student mastering 'works' or projects along with respecting culture, music, and the earth. This is the best school I have ever wittnessed.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
