My two kids went here and we pulled them. Some teachers ae great, some are plain awful. Seems like the great ones don't stay that long. Director is nice, but doesn't listen to parents regarding some of the poor quality and downright nasty teachers. Such a shame!
My daughter has very much benefited from this school. We love the quiet and peaceful environment in the entire school and this suited my daughters personality. She has become very independent and confident by attending this school. The teachers are all great. The after school programs are also fantastic. And the management staff is very helpful as well. Overall my experience about this school has been wonderful and I recommend it to everyone.
We have had all our children go through Montessori schools from toddler up to high school and would thoroughly recommend Crabapple Montessori's elementary program. You would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated Montessori teacher! The staff are always helpful and friendly.
The elementary teacher has no communication skills with the parents and/or children, does not seem to even like children and lead them by scaring and bullying them. This person can potentially create irreversible psychologic trauma on fragile children. Use of sarcasm on very little kids and Belittling of others for not real cause.
We had a great experience last year with a warm, nurturing teacher. This year the teacher was the exact opposite and we don't know why she is teaching young children when it seems she doesn't even like children. We found her to lack any kind of communication skills with parents. Another issue is the extremely dangerous entrance and exit to the school.
This school is one of the best Montessori schools I have ever seen. I have had children in several schools through the years (I have 4 children) and this one is by far managed the best. The administration is absolutely not just out for money! They met with me several times before we joined the school - allowed my son to attend FOR FREE for a week to ensure this was the best fit for him. Both my children who attended this school not only learned academically, but BLOSSOMED and THRIVED. You just can't ask for more! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this school!
The teachers at this school are wonderful. However, the teachers never seem to stay. The teacher turn over is very high at this school and I think that is a reflection of the administration. The administration has one goal in mind and it is money not what is best for the children. I would not recommend sending your child to this school.
Our toddler had a great experience at Crabapple, his first school experience. The teacher was fantastic -- we never worried about him or his well-being during the school day. The facilities are well-maintained and reflect the strengths of the Montessori discipline. The administrators are welcoming and open to parent involvement. This is a great educational opportunity for local families.
This is a wonderful school. I cannot say enough positive things about our son's experience there. He had been at another local preschool, and I was concerned about the transition to Montessori, but it was seamless. Wish I had known about this little jewel earlier. Our son absolutely thrived at this school. Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay is the assurance that we will definitely send our infant son there once he is 18 months old.
Our daughter started Crabapple Montessori at 18 mths and now at 2 1/2 has completely blossomed. Her vocabulary has increased, her independence and her confidence in completing tasks herself. The teacher in the toddler program are amazing and provide monthly newsletters to allow the parents to know what happens in school. The programs for parents/families are amazing. I would definitely recommend this school.
