We have been a part of the Community Montessori family since January 2007 when we were looking for a place for our 2 year-old son to go a few days a week to have a chance to play with other children his age. What we found was an amazing educational experience that uncovered his intellect and helped develop his love of learning. By the time he graduated he was reading chapter books and working at a 2nd grade level in math. Last year we graduated our middle child and she matriculated to 1st grade also reading chapter books and loving math. Now we have our third child enrolled and beginning her education foundation with Janet, Jocelyn, Helen, and Carol. More than the scholarly success they have all found at Community Montessori, they have also learned about citizenship and life virtues that we feel are solid building blocks to help them get along with others and be helpful members of our household. We have enjoyed our many years as part of the school and getting to know all the children and families through school-wide events. There truly is a sense of community and combined with the results we have seen with our children, we are very grateful for the school.
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.
