This school has really turned around recently. We started there in 2013 and some parents did mention that there were some issues. Nothing major, just with communication mostly. The staff is great and the work the kids do is excellent. Things in the past month or two have really improved.

We used to really love this school. The teachers were really amazing and my kids were excelling. But they have a new Director and in the past 5 months all the head teachers from the 4 classrooms (from infant to preschool) have left due to dissatisfaction with the leadership. And many of the assistant teachers have left as well. It is heart wrenching as a parent to see it happen. I would not recommend the school at this time.

We left this location due to poor communication and staff turnover. We opted for a different Montessori program.

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.
