All three of my daughters attended Aventura Montessori and it was a great experience for us. Each of my girls was able to read at an early age. The school not only gave them a solid academic foundation but they also developed confidence and independent working skills. It was good to see most of the same teachers over those 8 to 9 years.
I am a parent who pulled my child out of AMS and I can tell you that my postings have been deleted twice by this "site." This site DOES not reflect real information by parents but mostly self-serving statements from the schools. So DO NOT trust the ratings. I had a terrible experience at AMS. They have a policy of punishing the parents and making them wait outside in the parking lot 30 minutes for being late. In addition there are many break- ins in the parking lot. The school is in a run-down area and there is a much better Montessori school just 3 miles north in Hollywood.
If you've got your priorities in order I think you will like this school for several reasons. First, the education- my child learns things that even I don't know sometimes. The children receive a well rounded education, they learn social skills, leadership skills, and independence. I also think the safety and organization is well planned. If you are one of those parents who is laid back you may have to adjust, but children need to learn discipline which is lacking so much these days. The school does not have an open door policy and to be honest I feel safer knowing that. I like that the playground is not visible from the street or parking lot and that the doors are always locked. The administration is experienced and helpful so whether I can have daily contact with the teachers or not I know my child is in good hands and my questions are always addressed in a timely manner so I can relax and go on with my day.
After visiting many pre-schools, I decided for this one and I am not sure how to rate it. It is not totally bad but there are some issues. The school is not good looking but that is not important. The playground is very nice though. My main concern with this school is that there is not contact with the teachers. Teachers do not receive the kids and they don t give them back to the parents. There is no little chat with them ever. You never know whether your kid did well or not because there is no communication with the teacher. Besides, teacher do not give their emails or phone number which most schools do. Basically, there is NO contact with your kid s teacher. Other issue very annoying for most parents is that this school is run like 20 years ago: they do not accept credit cards and they do not use emails for communication. Instead, they accept only check and they hand out notes daily with news, calendar, payment, etc. I live in a digital era, I want emails. I want to be able to have the notes in my phone available 24/7. My kid is happy there so I am happy but I really wish they can modernize a little bit and that I could have more communication with my kid s teacher.
