This is an amazing school. Our son used to hate going to a traditional daycare earlier, simply because there was nothing stimulating enough. Within a week of entering the yellow room (Ms. Melanie's class), this boy was doing amazing things regarding his self-care and independence, and I am comparing him with my older son when he was of the same age. By 3 and a half years of age, he had started some initial reading. Ms. Melanie is amazingly passionate about teaching, and she has created an environment in the class that promotes learning. My son is not the only 3 year old who is reading. Besides this, he is growing into a compassionate individual, who would always offer a helping hand at every go. I have to drive longer and deal with a terrible morning traffic to reach his school, but all this is worth it - this school is way better than other montessori schools nearer to my house.

We have been extremely happy with Preston Ridge. We moved our daughter from another montessori school where there were problems with the administration/owners. Everything has been excellent at Preston Ridge from the teachers, the assistants, right to the administration. Our daughter has loved every day and has developed even further than we could ever have imagined.

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.
