One amazing school with amazing teachers. My daughter has attended this school since Nov, 2011 and I can't be happier with the school. Teachers do work hard to help the little ones love to learn and are careful and attentive to their needs. They offer to help if the child is behind with a skill. They always let you know the strengths and the weaknesses of the child so you are aware of what needs more work. The school offers a clean environment, quite like most Montessori. Toys (learning toys) are changed frequently for children to advance and try new things. They go in field trips where they learn about animals or simply go for the Pumpkin Patch. They go outdoors everyday and they also offer a gym class, ballet class, art class and soccer class for extra charge.

My daughter attended the 2 year old class and now is in preschool at the Park View Montessori. The teachers are very involved and care about the children. Teachers are all Montessori certified and that makes a difference. There are 2 teachers in a class of maximum 12 kids and one extra teacher that help between the 2 classrooms for the 2 year olds. They give the parents good advice on how to handle the terrible 2's :), as well as general advise on how to improve your child's behavior. They constantly change the Montessori "toys" so the children are always experiencing something new and challenging. They teach good manners and it sticks. My daughter has been in the preschool setting for the past 2 months and they did everything possible for her to adjust to schedule as well as to the new curriculum. They have ballet for 3 to 6 year olds, soccer and pre-fit gym class. For the 2 year old they have some art class and the pre-fit. They also have a full size gym which really helps on the really bad weather days when the children can't go outside I would recommend this school at any time. I am very pleased with everything they do.

The quality of the program is generally good, but not as good as it was. There are some classrooms that are not as good as others. Parent involvement has dropped in the past year and the teachers don't seem to get as much administration support as they need.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
