My son has been a student for the last year and a half after starting at 2 1/2 years old. I have been impressed with his educational development and desire to learn which I believe is a direct reflection of the environment Westshore provides. I am also 100% comfortable knowing that he is in a very caring environment that treats him as an individual. Love the full year program as well! Gives him consistency and is exactly what my family needs with both of us working. In his short time there, he has developed into a confident little leader. I firmly believe the Westshore model works and we could not be more pleased.

This school has far exceeded our expectations...we have one child currently enrolled and look forward to sending our other two when they are old enough. We looked at many schools and the moment we set foot in Westshore we immediately knew it was the right place. The atmosphere is calm and nurturing, children are expected to practice "grace & courtesy" at all times and teachers provide support for tremendous academic growth. Our four year old reads basic words and loves to do math in her head..she has no idea it is school work because learning is so ingrained in her daily activities. Most faculty members have worked at the school for at least a decade, often much longer and it is apparent in their love of helping little minds thrive. In addition to intellectual growth, the teachers gently push the children to be independent, caring for their own clothes, cleaning up their own spills, even making their own snacks. It is amazing how much a preschooler is capable of when given the right tools and atmosphere!

Westshore Montessori - The school has a fantastic set of teachers, but the leadership is aweful. I have pulled both of my daughter from the school. The leadership is not addressing the issues of the childrens needs and saftey. There is no shade in the playground, which is a concern due to sun burns. I tried to work with the head of the schools but she is clueless to this role and has no professional or leadshership skills. I choose to take my girls to Birchwood Montessori instead.

Quite simply, the best montessori preschool on the West side of Cuyahoga county. Outstanding faculty and facility, very happy and healthy children. Truly a place that believes in the innate goodness of each child, and encourages each to reach their fullest potential as human beings.

My wife and I are thrilled with our decision to have our daughters attend Westshore Montessori. We really believe that the 'directresses' and faculty at Westshore create a true Montessori atmosphere in which the children are encouraged to learn through exploration and hands-on activities. The staff is remarkable in their dedication and caring for the children. They truly believe and practice the Montessori philosophy of education, and my wife and I are believers having seen first-hand our daughters blossom in this environment. We would highly recommend Westshore Montessori to anyone looking for an alternative to the traditional learning options available for preschoolers today. If this interests you, I would encourage you to call the school and ask if you can observe a classroom for a hour. The staff is very accommodating and I'm sure you'll be amazed at seeing how well the children manage themselves in the learning activities they take on.

Westshore Montessori is the best Pre-K thru K school in Northern Ohio. The teachers are very dedicated and it shows in the high quality first graders this school produces. Excellent montessori school.
