After an unnecessarily difficult year at a well known school in PV, we hired a school placement consultant to vet a short list of pre-schools that provided a better environment match for both our sons (4 and 3). As part of the consultation, we completed formal testing and found them both to be very intelligent; requiring a low student:teacher ratio and more challenging curricula. We interviewed the top 3 and chose Community Montessori. The difference is remarkable. After only 6 weeks, my oldest is recognizing and sounding through words while my younger son is displaying significantly improved social skills. Both of them have a new thirst to attend school and then return home to explain the details of their day. All four of us are thrilled with CMS.
I highly recommend Community Montessori School. My daughter attended Community Montessori School for 3 years. She graduated from the program a confident, Independent, and happy child. She was reading at a 1st grade level upon completing the program. This school provides a true Montessori experience. Ms. Janet and her staff are dedicated to providing a strong foundation for their students which encourages life-long learning and good habits. The teachers at this school are the best and they truly care for each child. They provide a nurturing and safe environment. The curriculum is top notch and the classroom materials are very well cared for. This school also provides a virtue program which my entire family benefited from. This is the best school that you will find that serves the development of the 2 -6 year old student. Go see for yourself!
I am a former teacher at CMS; my 3 1/2 years there were some of the most rewarding years I have experienced.I miss working with MS Janet and her staff, I will never forget those sweet little 2 1/2 year olds; meeting them for the first time and having them sit with me so that I could give them a lesson on a practical life work,some were shy and some were not however they were always very attentive and could not wait for their turn already showing self-control,just waiting to get their little hands on the fun work. It is truly amaizing how the little ones come in as babies and grow into independent,respectful children and always very helpful to the younger children.I always enjoyed the last Friday of each month when it was time to break down that month and put out the new month,new fun works new colors and new crafts,I wish I knew about Janets school when my kids were in school and if we were living in PHX I would certainly want my grandchildren in her school. MS Janet is very serious about teaching however she has the biggest tender heart and truly loves each of her kids at the CMS.
My son has truly blossomed during the past 3 years at Community Montessori School. Janet and her staff have helped him become a more independent person in both thought and action. His love of learning has grown exponentially and, as a result, he has learned a tremendous amount while at CMS. He progressed from recognizing phonics to chapter book reading in a very short period of time. He loves the math manipulative and he even asks for math problems at home. As I look at elementary schools now, I find that the teachers at other schools are impressed with his progress and conduct. That is a fine testimony to Janet's many years of experience and her wonderful teachers. However, they not only provide so much education but they also are attuned to each child. Whether it be someone's mood to needing more encouragement with decision/life making skills. They nourish the whole child. There are also many wonderful activities such as the International Festival and Mr. Sam's African drumming which allow the kids to explore different cultures and diversity. Parents have even given talks about his/her own country of origin. I highly recommend this school!
