Our child didn t having a positive, bonding experience with her teacher. She hated going to school, complaining about things we initially brushed off as the settling period. I came a few times when teachers were hustling kids out for recess and had that gut sinking feeling based on how children were treated. I started paying close attention and talking more to my child about her day. I asked the staff questions. I visited with parents. I became increasingly concerned. The overall tone of the school was off - either too quiet in an eery, unnatural way for a building full of that many young, joyful children - or an authoritarian tone with lots of harsh commands directed at the children in a firing squad fashion. We ve thankfully moved on. Just because you pay top dollar for a school that has Montessori in its name doesn t always mean that it s Montessori in spirit. So glad to be in a peaceful, joyful program where learning is fun! Our daughter is happy, learning in leaps and bounds and finally loving school! Parents - listen to your instincts, don t disregard your child s responses to school, and be involved! If you re not allowed in the classroom, that alone is a HUGE red flag!
I have had my son in this school for three years and I could not be happier. The teachers are top notch; the administration will work with parents and my son is 5 and a half and ready for grade 2. When my second child is ready I will return to this school. If you are an involved and caring parent who wants the best behavioral and social skills and the best education for your child- this is the school for you! You will find that most parents that send their kids to this school are involved, highly educated and care about every aspect of their child s life.
This school is horrible. Part of the Montessori method is to have a warm inviting classroom. They don't even allow art on the walls, because "It makes the classroom look messy and cluttered." If you notice there are no clocks in the classrooms, so they'll be no distractions. Its also very obvious which kids/families are the favorites around there. CMS is a money hungry establishment. My family is worth more than dollar bills.
My daughter has attended this school for two years and it is more than a school...it's another leg of our family. The teachers care for your child as if they were their own. Due to her age I am faced with no other choice but to move her to public school next year and I am so anxious that she will have to leave this school behind. There is not a better school in the Olympia area!
